Sawmill collection may be a service that we provide to you or it could be something that you’re considering. Either way, here at P.H. Winterton and Son, we like to be fully transparent with our customers about where their waste is going. One of the things that separates us from other collection companies is how we use the waste to positively impact on the planet. To find out how your waste is helping the environment, read ahead in our latest blog post. Animal Bedding We believe that all waste should be used rather than wasted. That’s why we recycle leftover sawmill and use it for other purposes. Thanks to our unique and highly reliable machinery, we can create the highest quality animal bedding if the quality is still to a high enough standard. Whether you’re looking for bedding for a cow, sheep, dog or guinea pig, our top quality recycled bedding will guarantee comfort, cleanliness and absorbency. To find out more, read our guide on animal bedding. Biomass Fuel Our equipment also allows us to create the highest quality biomass fuel supplies. In collaboration with Cheshire-based organic recycling specialists, CRJ Services, we have been able to produce around 25 tonnes of biomass per week. 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. Thanks to CRJ’s expert knowledge and specialist machinery, we have been able to be a part of the Government’s Biomass Fuel Supplier List. Therefore, you can rest assured that you will receive the highest quality product, both quickly and efficiently. To find out more about how to use and purchase our biomass products, read our guide. Reducing Our Carbon Footprint By recycling our sawmill waste, not only are we reducing...Read Moreabout What Happens To Your Waste After Sawmill Collection?
Sawmill waste collection in Leicestershire offered by P.H Winterton and Son is the eco-friendliest way to produce electricity. We are firm believers in waste not being wasted, which is why we use sawmill waste to produce biomass fuel (which creates electricity) plus we can use it for comfortable bedding for various animals. How Sawmill Waste Creates Biomass Fuel Here is your basic guide to generating electricity through biomass fuel – The most common way biomass fuel becomes electricity is through the combustion of wooded materials to heat water and produces steam which can spin turbines. Another method of electricity production is using excess steam from biomass plants for on-site manufacturing processes or heating, which can boost your energy efficiency. The wood used for biomass fuel can contain around 18 megajoules (MJ) per kilogram of energy when dried before use. To get a better idea of the equivalent, a kilogram of cut grass contains about 4 million joules (1 million joules = 1 megajoule), which is just slightly more than the kilowatt-hour used in the energy retail market. The UK is fast moving towards the use of biomass fuels instead of fossil fuels such as coal. Here are some of the biggest biomass projects going on at the moment – • Drax Power Station (North Yorkshire) – The largest producer of carbon dioxide in the country has been converting its coal-fired boilers to use biomass fuel instead. • Blackburn Meadows Cogeneration Plant (South Yorkshire) – Harnessing excess heat from combustion this facility provides heating to nearby business through the district heating system • Templeborough Biomass Plant – Opened in August 2017 this plant provides energy for 78,000 homes which saves up to 150,000 tonnes of carbon dioxide each year. • Kent Biomass Power Station – This station which opened in the summer of 2018, services 50,000 homes. • Tees Renewable Energy Plant – Due to finish in 2020 and costing £650m this will be the largest biomass plant in the world, producing enough electricity for 600,00 homes.
