Traditional boilers use gas or oil in order to generate heat. While these are effective, the burning process emits carbon dioxide which has a negative impact on the environment. Biomass boilers make use of solid materials such as wood shavings, pellets and chips as a fuel for generating heat.
Compared to other types of fuel, burning wood offers a better alternative due to it being a carbon-neutral process. What this means is that the carbon dioxide produced in the burning process is equal in volume to the carbon dioxide the tree absorbed while it was growing. This makes it a much more sustainable source compared to other fuels.
Another important consideration that makes biomass systems more advantageous is the fact that UK landfill sites take in tonnes of waste wood every single year. The use of wood as fuel for biomass boilers helps reduce the strain off landfills. Therefore, not only is this a healthier option for the environment but it is practical too.
Biomass boilers can be log burning or can also burn wood chips or pellets. The type of boiler that will suit your personal situation will depend on several factors, including the space you have available and your accessibility to wood.
