Carbon Neutral Fuel Source
As the cost of heating with
natural gas and fuel oils continues to rise business is being pushed
towards the use of biomass fuels for heat generation.
Wood stoves and wood pellet
stoves are among the 'greenest' of all heating appliances.
Wood pellet has become one
of the most economic biomass fuels the world can provide. Unlike fossil
fuels, biomass fuels are a managed renewable resource.
Unlike oil and gas stoves,
wood stoves run on a sustainable, renewable and controllable fuel source
which also has the added advantage of being a lot nearer to Carbon Neutrality
than oil fuel, gas fuel or coal fuel.
Wood pellet is a carbon neutral
fuel solution which is exempt from the Climate Change Levy and can attract
financial incentives in the form of grants that can be used to mitigate
initial capital investments of equipment installation and ongoing running
Biomass fuels are carbon
neutral as they do not add CO2 to the atmosphere because the same amount
of CO2 released during the burning process is absorbed whilst growing.
Wood pellet for stoves is
formed from good quality wood waste, allowing more complete and effective
utilisation of forestry resources.
The wood waste for wood stoves
is dried and pressed together in a pellet mill. The temperature produced
in this process causes woods natural polymer, Lignin, to be released
from the wood which in turn binds the pellet together without the need
for additional binding agents.
This produces a biomass fuel
that is consistent, easy to transport, store and extremely clean burning
another plus for wood stoves.
Wood pellets have a low moisture
content less than 10% and as such they will not freeze in storage and
can be stored outside in suitable storage containers allowing for easy
delivery and discharge, whilst maximising storage space.
Wood pellets have a very
low ash content (typically in the region of 0.2% - 0.5%) compared to
other solid fuels (coal 8 – 12%). The resultant wood pellet ash
(potash) can be used as a fertiliser thus reducing disposal and carbon
