Using wood pellets in a biomass boiler

A convenient and increasingly popular way to burn wood is in the form of pellets in a biomass boiler.  The wood pellets are normally made from virgin wood but some are made from saw dust from wood processing industries.   In 2013 as a part of the Moor Heating Project information on biomass boilers was published online.  The biomass boilers page includes information on sources of wood pellets and buying them as at February 2013.  It has not been updated but it is still useful.

See our page on Financial support for energy saving and generation.   The section on that page relevant to this technology is the one on the Renewable Heat Incentive.
