What is Biomass?

Biomass is simply an organic matter such as wood, crops, food waste, agricultural waste and industrial waste which can be burned to produce heat just like a standard gas boiler.

What does it look like?

There are 2 types, a stove and a boiler. A stove will sit on the floor and heat a room, a boiler has a similar size to a small fridge freezer depending on the capacity output.

Where is it installed?

Stoves can go in any room however a flue will be required so consideration for this will need to be made. A boiler can be fitted in a Kitchen or in a Garage just like any other boiler.

What type of fuel?

The most common types of fuel used are wood pellets, wood chips and logs.

Where can I get fuel?

There are many online companies that sell Biomass fuels they will deliver the products which can be bought by the bag or pallet load. A bag weight is typically 15 Kgs and a pallet is 780 Kgs.

Will I need permission?

Planning permission is not normally required, the exceptions are if the building is listed or in a conservation area. Careful consideration will be required for the position of the flue; if it is 1 metre above the roof height or can be viewed from a road then permission will be required.
