Biomass Boiler – creating energy from biomass – burning of living or recently dead organisms and any byproducts of those organisms – has gained significant popularity in the UK in recent years. This is an efficient, cost-effective means of generating electricity and heat for a wide range of needs: district heating systems for multiple homes, commercial properties such as offices, factories and schools and in farms and agricultural plants.
There are three types of bioenergy technology we can deploy.
Biomass Boiler Types Include:
Wood Chip Boilers
Wood chip is timber that has been shredded in a chipper. Useable in both commercial and domestic properties, wood chip boilers are normally less expensive to buy but extra components are available to provide an automated fuel feed system – this is particularly useful in commercial settings.
Pellet boilers are more compact than log boilers but deliver more energy and are fully automated. They offer great flexibility in the storage of fuel and are a clean, reliable and convenient way to heat homes and businesses. The pellets are manufactured from by-products from sawmills and other wood processing industries.
Log Fuel Boilers
Log boilers or are manually fed heating systems that can use many different types of timber. Typically they are filled once a day and can provide heating and hot water for multiple buildings. The fuel is burned in a chamber and the gasses that are produced are drawn off and burnt again to generate additional heat.
We work with some of the best manufacturers in the world to deliver high-performance bioenergy systems:
When compared to using conventional boiler systems and mains electricity, Bosch CHP has the potential to reduce carbon dioxide emissions for power and heat generation by around 30%. In utilising the waste heat from the power generation process, Bosch CHP delivers energy utilisation of around 92%, of which around 33% is in the form of higher value electrical energy.
Bosch CHP modules feature a three-way catalyst and lambda control, ensuring low emissions and enhanced effciency. They also produce very low noise levels through their integrated sound insulation.
Fuel input to CHP is exempt from the Climate Change Levy. In addition, Bosch CHP plant and machinery is eligible for Enhanced Capital Allowances (contingent on achieving certain CHPQA quality CHP statuses).
Bosch CHP is ideal for heating domestic properties, public buildings such as hospitals, schools, sports complexes and swimming pools as well as industrial properties such as breweries, supermarkets and shopping centres.
Energimizer CHP products bristle with features such as:
- 3 way catalytic converter
- Lambda control ensuring low nox
- Live monitoring with ability to alter settings remotely
- Connect to a local network or the internet
These products can be supplied mains parallel, mains parallel with standby facility and island mode.
Heizomat was founded in 1982 and today offers a range of biomass systems that are deployed everywhere from office blocks to farms.
ESPE designs reliable green energy systems that integrate the production of clean energy with the heating and air conditioning systems of existing buildings.
Fröling’s state-of-the-art products are manufactured in Austria and Germany and used extensively throughout Europe. We are proud to be a Fröling service partner.
ETA’s biomass boilers are used worldwide and their wide range of products means they can be found everywhere from small houses to large office blocks.
