How much can I save on energy bills using Biomass Fuel?

By on Sep 10, 2019 in Biomass fuel, Blog |

Biomass fuel has become increasingly popular with households aiming to reduce their carbon footprint and save money on their energy bills. Here at P.H Winterton and Son, we develop a high-quality supply of wood chip biomass fuel that can provide warmth to a single room or even power a central heating system plus hot water boilers. According to the Energy Saving Trust using a wood-fuelled biomass boiler could save you an incredible £960 a year compared to an older electric heating system. Three Reasons to Use Biomass Fuel Here are three reasons to use a biomass heating system – 1. The price of wood varies considerably but long term this is a more affordable heating solution. 2. Using a wood boiler system could lead to financial support from the Government-led Renewable Heating Incentive (RHI) scheme. 3. Carbon dioxide emitted from wood pellets when they are burning is the same amount absorbed over all the time the plant was growing. Sourcing your fuel from a local supplier such as P.H Winterton and Son will ensure carbon emissions are kept as low as possible plus they are still much lower than from fossil fuels. Biomass Fuel Saves the Environment Carbon dioxide emissions are significantly reduced when using a wood-fuelled boiler instead of solid coal-fired system. According to the Energy Saving Trust, this can add up to an incredible 14.3 tonnes of emissions per year! P.H Winterton and Son are also part of the UK government’s approved Biomass Supplier List, which was introduced by the Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy (BEIS) in April 2014. This is a comprehensive list of wood fuel that’s been proven to meet requirements of the Renewable Heat Incentive scheme. This allows RHI participants to demonstrate to Ofgem that the fuel they are using in their biomass boilers meets the RHI sustainability criteria required to claim savings as part of the scheme.

Turning Waste into Biomass Fuel in Derbyshire

Turning Waste into Biomass Fuel in Derbyshire

By on Jun 4, 2019 in Biomass fuel, Blog |

Biomass fuel in Derbyshire from P.H Winterton and Son is one of the most innovative ways to create a renewable energy source using waste. Biomass can consist of agricultural and animal waste that is environmentally friendly due to the produced energy not releasing anywhere near the number of pollutants and Greenhouse gases that fossil fuels do. High-Quality Biomass Fuel in Derbyshire There are three main types of biomass energy, produced from the following components – • Solid – Wood, sawdust and garbage • Liquid – Ethanol and Methanol • Gas – Biogas or swamp gas (mainly Methane gas) The main source of biomass fuel from P.H Winterton is wood residue which is obtained through our sawmill waste collection service for joinery firms. Our meticulous production process ensures all of our wood is of uniform size and free of harmful contaminants such as metal – which reduces carbon dioxide and gasses that can cause acid rain. Acid rain is one of the consequences of air pollution which occurs when emissions from factories, cars or heating boilers come into contact with water in the atmosphere. These emissions contain nitrogen oxides, sulphur dioxide and sulphur trioxide which when mixed with water become sulphurous acid, nitric acid and sulphuric acid. The resulting acids are extremely damaging to soils, lakes and seas with consequential damage to terrestrial and marine flora and fauna. This can also cause the corrosion of metallic elements in buildings, bridges, towers and other structures plus the destruction of statues, sculptures and limestone buildings. So as you can see using biomass fuel is extremely beneficial to the future of our environment. Six Decades of Outstanding Customer Service P.H Winterton and Son are celebrating 60 years of business this year and we believe the reason we continue to lead the way for animal bedding and biomass fuel in Derbyshire is our unmatched customer service.
