With sustainable fuels becoming more and more prevalent, it’s the perfect time to consider the benefits of using biomass fuel. Last week, we saw the government announce that algae, alcohol and household waste would power RAF fighter jets under the Ministry of Defence’s plan to slash carbon emissions. Along with the government’s plans to ban petrol and diesel cars by 2030, it seems that alternative fuel sources are the future. Therefore, we thought that we would look at five benefits of biofuel in our latest blog post. Less Greenhouse Gases It’s the obvious one, we know. However, it’s also one of the most important reasons that people tend to switch. Even though biofuels still emit some greenhouse gases, it’s much less than your traditional fuels. In fact, thanks to photosynthesis, biomass fuels only release the same amount of carbon into the atmosphere as was absorbed by plants in the course of their life cycle. This means that it is considered as CO2 neutral. If there are less greenhouse gases in the air, then we could slow the effects of global warming. Renewable Source of Energy One of the most important factors surrounding biomass fuel is that it’s a renewable source. This means that we can replace it as we use it, leading to an endless supply. Farmers can dedicate land to growing crops that will be intended for use as biofuel. This is a much better alternative to draining the Earth of it’s oils and natural gases which are all non-renewable sources of energy. More Cost Effective A lot of this comes down to the process of sourcing and producing the fuel. For fossil fuels, sourcing them requires drills, gas pipelines and fuel collection. However, the machinery needed to produce biomass fuel is much less expensive. These overheads are naturally reflected in the price of the product. Less Waste Polluting The Environment By giving this waste another purpose, you’re preventing it from being dumped in a landfill somewhere. Littering and the usage of non-degradable materials is unfortunately rife. Therefore, where there is an opportunity to re-use other materials, we should definitely try to. By working with P.H. Winterton and Son to get sawmill waste collections, you’re helping to save...Read Moreabout Five Benefits Of Switching to Biomass Fuel

Biomass fuel is an organic material which is produced in a renewable manner to create heat or power. We produce two types of biomass fuel using grade A wood residue from our sawmill waste collections. These are split into the following two grades: P16 Grade – A smaller size of wood chip P35 Grade – A grade wood with no contaminants present These can then be burnt in a boiler for industrial heating and electricity. All of our biomass fuel is of the quality and specification required by the specialist sectors that we cater for.

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.
