Wood fuel production – sustainable brash removal and high performing biomass fuel

FSCContrary to the false impression around wood fuels, the modern green energy industry relies on strategic forest replants and sustainability management. The Ethical Tree Service policy also means that as we manufacture biomass by cutting a tree, several more trees get replanted in its place. The procedure safeguards the annual harvest of only 2% of the regulated woodlands while keeping the other 98% to grow and handle the carbon. As our sensibly sourced wood fuel gradually replaces fossil fuels in the majority of the commercial sector, we observe a rapid reduction of carbon footprint and pollution in the atmosphere.

Finally, to ensure the 100% process compliance, we make sure that every single wood batch obtained from our tree service supply-chain originates from forests that conform to the UK Forestry Standard (UKFS).

Biomass fuel moisture content

The level of the moisture content will determine the overall calorific value of your fuel. When comparing the price to performance, 20% (+/- 4%) moisture content is shown to be the most effective ratio. If you use fuel that contains more water, you can expect to derive less energy from it, and therefore more wood must be bought and processed. Also, you might not be fulfilling the demands of your RHI duties, which could lead to losing your payments entirely through the use of a highly moisturised fuel against the Emissions Certificate permits.

High biomass boiler performance

Woodyfuel strives to achieve the highest boiler performance. With wood fuel of 20% moisture content (+/- 4% moisture margin) and optimal drying conditions, we achieve a supreme energy yield, reduction in ash and dust by-products and overall low maintenance of your biomass boiler.

With higher moisture content fuel your heating system will require more manual intervention while using more wood fuel. That is unlikely to produce the same return on investment and RHI earnings as with 20% (+/- 4%) moisture content premium biomass.

Key benefits of our biomass supply and brash removal services

There are many factors that secure a smooth, problem-free and efficient operation of your biomass boiler and your heating system. The following are the 3 essential wood chip parameters we consider as the most vital:

N

Fuel Moisture Levels

When operating a biomass boiler, you want to avoid fuel with excess water. Excessive moisture in your wood fuel prevents it from burning efficiently. It also costs more money due to increase in overall weight of the delivery. The ideal biomass moisture content is 20% (+/- 4%).

N

Operational Consistency

Constantly changing fuel quality will impact the long-term productivity of your boiler. Woodyfuel makes sure your biomass is clean, uniform and adheres to your specification. Further, our biomass delivery system secures your boiler’s smooth operation and without disruptions.

N

Biomass Boiler Compatibility

The biomass fuel industry reports significant issues with the overall boiler performance and its running costs if used wood fuel is not optimal to boiler’s specification. The site visit would establish biomass fits in and is appropriate for the unit you are using.

Woodyfuel benefits

Wood fuel is a renewable source of energy that is natural, sustainable, and carbon-efficient with the potential to deliver considerable economic benefits as well as mitigate climate change.

Here's how Woodyfuel's biomass supply can benefit you.

Reduced wood fuel usage per year

Spend less on your biomass supply and save on the heating bills.

Quality control

Stringent checks to avoid any wood fuel contamination.

Optimal boiler performance

Optimal boiler performance achieved thanks to balanced Wood Chip Moisture Content and a significant reduction in servicing and repair costs.

Sustainability

Approved by Biomass Suppliers List (BSL).

Bulk Deliveries

We supply wood fuel from multiple local biomass depots in Northern England.
