Biomass heating

pellet stove

Moving away from fossil fuels, we will need to find alternatives to coal, oil and gas for heating our homes and offices. One obvious solution is biomass - typically in the form of wood.

It is a renewable fuel that truly "grows on trees" and it can be produced locally and sustainably - as long as a new tree is planted for every tree that is cut down. Burning wood biomass emits CO2 through the chimney, but as growing trees absorb CO2 from the atmosphere biomass can be a nearly carbon neutral source of fuel as long as trees are replanted.

Batch log boilers and pellet boilers offer more convenient and efficient ways to heat with wood fuel than traditional stoves.

To learn more about this technology, take a look at our Questions and Answers section and our Case Studies.
