Biomass boiler is a kind of boiler which offer an alternative, cheap and eco-friendly way to generate heat to the home. Biomass boilers are known as the environmentally friendly kind of boilers because they’re classed as a system to production of renewable energy.

There are many advantages to using biomass, first of all biomass boiler is classified as a renewable energy source. Using biomass as fuel does not cause environmental damage that occurs, for example, during coal mining. When obtaining biomass from wood, rational forest management is carried out, in place of the cut trees, new plantations are established. Profits from biomass combustion are also savings caused by its affordable price and high calorific value. The advantage is the negligible amount of pollutants released from the burnt biomass.


How Do Biomass Boiler Work?

A biomass boiler is a heating system that uses biomass, it means organic materials, to make heat. Biomass is organic substances containing carbon compounds that can provide the energy released in the combustion process.

To make heat can be burned a few kinds of biomass, for example biomass pellets, wooden logs, wood chips and wood blocks and other forms of wood. All that kinds of biomass materials are used to heat the water in boiler. This happens by sending wood pellets, wood chips or logs, into the combustion chamber where biomass is burned into heat energy. That heat energy is used to heat water in the boiler, and water circulated from radiator to radiator provide warmth to every room. Biomass boiler heater system work like classic form of central heating.

Biomass boilers are considered as sustainable source of energy because biomass boilers use renewable resources (biomass) instead of fossil fuels. The main source of biomass fuel is wood. Wood used in biomass boilers comes in the form of wood-based pellets. Pellets are made by compressing wood waste and have a high energy density and low moisture content, this properties making pellets to be an ideal fuel for biomass boilers. Another advantage of pellets is that pellets can be easily stored.


Benefits of a biomass boiler using

Benefits of biomass boiler are plenty.

·        Biomass boilers are energy efficient because it can convert up to 80-95% of the wood they use into heat. It is a very good results, but result depend on kind of wood and kind of biomass boiler.

·        Low running costs of biomass boiler. Costs of biomass boiler using depending on the price of the fuel, and depending on the size of the property which we have to make warmth. Generally, biomass boiler cost of running is a bit lower than gas boiler. The cost of biomass boiler can also be reduced by government biomass boiler grant because biomass boilers are eligible for government grants.

·        Reliable source of heat because of off-grid power. You are an owner of a biomass boiler, and you decide how and when to use him. You need only to keep biomass fuel at home to use boiler anytime you need him.

·        Benefits for environment. Biomass boilers produce less CO2 and other emissions than oil boilers, but still a little bit more than heat pumps.

·        Biomass boilers have the potential to significantly reduce human reliance on fossil fuels, and reduce carbon emissions to the atmosphere.

·        It is also worth remembering that the use of biomass for energy purposes is also a way to manage industrial waste from furniture factory, which would otherwise have to be subject to costly disposal.

Biomass boiler is highly recommended to install on farms, small private houses and simply countryside.
