Wood chip: a sustainable biomass fuel
Our recommended option - easily stored and handled.
Generally derived from forest or sawmill residues or from clean, untreated waste timber. They are typically used for larger scale applications such as leisure centres or community heating schemes. For problem-free use in smaller systems they need to achieve high uniformity in size and have low moisture content.
Chip boilers are a Perthshire Biofuels recommended solution, though the feedstock still needs to be monitored to ensure it has the correct moisture content. Most pellet and chip burners use automatic fuel feeders which refill them at regular intervals.
