Benefits of biomass Fuel in Cheshire

  • According to the Energy Saving Trust a wood fuelled biomass boiler could save you up to £800 a year compared to using an old electric heating system
  • Wood fuel boiler systems could also qualify you for the Renewable Heating Incentive scheme, where you could receive cash payments from the UK Government across a number of years if you have an eligible renewable heating technology
  • The carbon dioxide emitted when wood is burned is the same amount that was absorbed over the months and years that the plant was growing. As long as the fuel is sourced locally the carbon emissions are much lower than fossil fuels

Biomass Fuel in Cheshire Saves Money and Improves Safety

Wood which enters and stays in the waste system poses a couple of challenges when being processed; one is cost, and the other is safety, due to it being a combustible material.

Recycling companies pay thousands of pounds each year to dispose of their waste wood, bringing with it the risk of fire hazards and accidents. Between 2001 and 2013 there were on average 300 fires per year at waste or recycling plants, according to the Renewable Energy Hub.

On a domestic level, biomass fuel is also used in wood burning stoves and boilers, with some boilers offering a self cleaning system whereas a traditional log fire may need the grate clearing before every use. Chimneys and flue pipes for traditional wood fires and stoves will also need regular sweeping to maintain safety.
