Benefits of Biomass
- Affordable heating fuel: although the price of wood fuel varies considerably, it is often cheaper than other heating options
- Financial support: wood fuel boiler systems can benefit from the Renewable Heat Incentive
- A low-carbon option: the carbon dioxide emitted when wood is 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
- Savings in carbon dioxide emissions are very significant - up to 14.5 tonnes a year when a wood-fuelled boiler replaces a solid (coal) fired system or electric storage heating. *Energy Saving Trust 2014
Sustain Services offers both commercial and domestic Biomass installations.
Biomass is an alternative renewable fuel and ideally suited to off gas grid properties, it can be utilised for domestic hot water and heating. As a renewable fuel Biomass attracts the Government backed Renewable Heat Incentive (RHI) payments, similar to the successful FIT solar PV scheme. Biomass is diverse and can be used to heat anything from a small home to large industrial units, the boilers can burn wood pellets, wood chips or logs.
Biomass has been used and developed in Austria for over 30 years, therefore they are recognised as the leaders in Biomass technology and development. Sustain Services partners several Austrian manufacturers enabling us to offer reliable, robust installations.
