Benefits of using biomass as a sustainable fuel:

  • Correctly managed, biomass is a sustainable fuel that can offer a wide range of benefits
  • Biomass is a carbon lean fuel producing a fraction of the carbon emissions of fossil fuels
  • Biomass can be sourced locally, from within the UK, on an indefinite basis, contributing to security of supply
  • UK sourced biomass can offer local business opportunities and support the rural economy
  • The establishment of local networks of production and usage, allows financial and environmental costs of transport to be minimized.  There is no region in the UK that cannot be a producer of biomass
  • Many biomass fuels generate lower levels of such atmospheric pollutants as sulphur dioxide, that contributes to acid rain.  Modern biomass combustion systems are highly sophisticated, offering combutions efficiency and emission levels comparable with the best fossil fuel boilers

Wood fuelled heating systems, also called biomass systems, burn wood pellets, chips or logs to provide warmth in a single room or to power central heating and hot water boilers.

A stove burns logs or pellets to heat a single room – and may be fitted with a back boiler to provide water heating as well.  A boiler burns logs, pellets or chips, and is connected to a central heating and hot water system.

Although the price of wood fuel varies considerably, it is often cheaper than other heating options.

Wood fuel boiler systems could benefit from the Renewable Heat Incentive (RHI).

The carbon dioxide emitted when wood it burned is the same amount that was absorbed over the months and years that the plant was growing.  The process is sustainable as long as new plants continue to grow in place of those used for fuel.  There are some carbon emissions caused by the cultivation, manufacture and transportation of the fuel, but as long as the fuel is sourced locally, these are much lower than emissions from fossil fuels.
