  Biomass Energy

Biomass is fuel derived from organic plant and animal waste. It is an environment friendly, renewable and sustainable form of energy and is an efficient way of reusing waste that otherwise would have occupied landfills and caused pollution.

Some examples of materials that serve as biomass fuel are:
  • Wood Scrap
  • Crops like rice husks, wheat and sugar cane remnants
  • Organic Debris
  • Manure
  • In cities, organic municipal waste also forms a primary source of biofuel.

Biomass is the most common source of energy after hydroelectric power. In UK, biomass boilers are increasingly being used to provide suitable heating for homes and businesses. Biomass boilers can be used in hot water systems and central heating and use commercially available compressed organic matter called biomass pellets as fuel. Biomass pellets made of wood or compressed sawdust have high energy density and are virtually smoke free, because of which they are preferred over other forms.

Biomass boilers are expensive and require some amount of space for installation. But they reduce electricity and gas consumption (by £880 a year), thereby bringing long term savings that pay off the cost of installation in a short period. In UK, boilers using renewable sources of energy qualify for financial support under Renewable Heat Incentive Scheme.

Biomass heating brings the following benefits:
  • It uses renewable source of energy that is naturally replenished. Hence, it can help to meet increasing energy demands.
  • It reduces dependence on fossil fuels.
  • It encourages re-usability of waste.
  • It reduces carbon footprint.
  • It is less subject to price fluctuations than other sources of energy.

Biomass boilers work out to be cheaper than solid fuel or electric heating systems in the long run, which is why households across UK are using it to heat their homes.
