Biomass is a form of renewable energy generated from the use of organic material. At Enva we manufacture bespoke biomass fuel from waste wood.
Biomass is now the biggest single user of waste wood in the UK. The amount of biomass manufactured from waste wood has doubled over recent years, to 2.1 million tonnes in 2018.
Biomass fuel is used to produced carbon neutral electricity which is generated from the heat released when the wood chip is burned.
Many biomass boilers also operate as combined heat a power (CHP) plants, generating heat as well as electricity, which is then used to heat local businesses or homes.
At Enva our years of experience have given us a track record in supplying top grade fuel which is consistent in quality, has year-round availability and can be tailored to meet the specific needs of your boiler.
Types of wood chip biomass
There are two types of biomass: large scale IED compliant boilers and small scale and domestic boilers, which are not IED compliant. The type of boiler you have determines the type of wood biomass fuel you can legally burn, therefore talking to us at the start of your project to ensure you receive the correct specification of fuel is vital.
