Biomass heating

Biomass heating refers to the production of heat through the combustion of renewable vegetal or animal material. Fuelwood of all shapes and sizes –pellets, firelogs, chips- is the most common form of biomass heating.

Fully-automated and equipped with advanced smoke-filtering technologies, the new generation of boilers makes biomass heating an economic and user-friendly alternative for  institutional, industrial and commercial buildings.

Energy Security at Your Reach

Short-rotation willow coppice constitutes a complementary fuelwood feedstock to traditional forest and wood processing residues.  To integrate SRWC fuelwood into one’s fuel supply portfolio is to opt for….

The predictability of fuel supplies over a period as long as 25 years

The perennial nature of willow fuelwood production enables its end users to hedge against unexpected local shortfalls in wood residues occurring during economic downturns.

The long-term price stability of heating costs

With a farm gate energy balance reaching up to 55 energy units produced per each unit consumed, willow fuelwood enables effective decoupling of heating costs from fossil fuel prices hikes.

A consistency in fuel quality

The use of a homogenous and purpose-grown feedstock curtails the variance in boiler performance caused by inconsistency in fuel characteristics, (ash chemical profile, moisture content, contaminants, chip size, etc.)
