WHAT ARE BIOMASS SYSTEMS?
Biomass heating systems use wood fuel to produce heat and have less effect on the environment than fossil fuels. Biomass energy production has a limited long-term effect on the environment because the carbon in biomass is part of the natural carbon cycle, whereas fossil fuels permanently add carbon to the environment when burned for fuel.
Before the use of fossil fuels in significant quantities, wood fuel provided most of humanity’s heating. Biomass boilers can be used as a direct replacement for a gas or oil boiler and can be linked to any existing wet central heating system, whether it be a radiator or under floor system or a combination of both.
