Here at P.H Winterton, we are firm believers using potentially waste materials to create high-quality products such as equine bedding. Our sawmill waste collection service stretches right across the country and is extremely popular in South Wales with clients in areas such as Cardiff, Gwent and Newport. If you’ve never considered using your sawmill waste, here’s the simple process – • Give P.H Winterton a call and we can arrange a trailer for you fill up with your sawmill waste, which when ready can be transported back to our premises and used for products including animal bedding and biomass fuel. For over 60 years, this has been one of our flagship services, but in recent years given the demand for renewable energy sources, we have expanded our portfolio to also provide biomass fuel to customers. Why Biomass Fuel is So Important Biomass fuel is a renewable energy source that can be used to small groups of homes, large individual houses, schools and glasshouses plus poultry huts. In 2014 the Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy (BEIS) in the UK Government introduced the Renewable Heating Incentive which offered savings on heating people or businesses who could demonstrate the use of renewable energy sources. To this end, the Biomass Supplier List was devised, a U.K wide listing of all providers of biomass fuel, with P.H Winterton and Son the flagship company for the West Midlands and beyond. Turning Waste into Renewable Fuel P.H Winterton and Son are well-equipped to deal with any demands for sawmill waste, with a fleet of 10 trucks and three vans ready and waiting to collect your joinery waste. We have options available for both small and large joinery outfits with a 20-foot hook-lift filter skip for smaller firms and a 20-foot open-top waste skip for off-cuts wood chips, pallets and general waste.

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. Using our reliable fleet network we can provide biomass fuel to areas such as Staffordshire, Cheshire, Leicestershire, Northamptonshire and Berkshire.

Electric Sawmill Waste Collection in Leicestershire

Electric Sawmill Waste Collection in Leicestershire

By on May 10, 2019 in Blog, Sawmill Waste 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.
