Why Farmers Are Being Urged To Use Biomass Fuel

By on Jul 3, 2019 in Biomass fuel, Blog |

Increasingly, farmers and other agricultural businesses are being encouraged to use biomass fuel to create heat or power. What’s more, the government is focusing now more than ever on Renewable Heat Incentives and other Eco-friendly initiatives. As a result, it really is the time to consider using an environmentally friendly and efficient source of power. 

P.H. Winterton & Son is a proud champion of renewable energy in Nottinghamshire, Cheshire, Staffordshire and beyond. But what exactly is biomass fuel, and why should you consider using it for your business?

Biomass Fuel As A Renewable Energy Source

Biomass fuel is simply natural material derived from living, or recently living, plants. Common types of biomass fuel include:

  • Logs
  • Pellets
  • Woodworking Offcuts
  • Grains
  • Bales
  • Animal waste

Burning biomass fuels still creates carbon dioxide. However, the plant only releases the same amount of carbon dioxide as when it was living. Consequently, biomass fuel is a renewable and sustainable source of energy. 

Grade A Wood Residue From P.H. Winterton

Across Staffordshire, Cheshire, Derbyshire and Nottinghamshire, P.H. Winterton offers biomass fuel in the form of wood residue. Through our sawmill waste collection service, we have access to a Grade A renewable energy source. This wood residue is both uniform in size and free from harmful contaminants, like metal. So it burns at a steady rate and works to reduce emissions of harmful gases and carbon dioxide.

Not only is this method of generating heat and power environmentally friendly, it’s also good for your bank account! Due to its low cost and efficiency, using it for heating and electricity can save you money. What’s more, it is fantastic as animal bedding! Making it a multi-functional resource that’s good for the environment, and great for your business.
