Turning Waste Wood into a Profit with biomass


Turning waste wood into profit for your business biomass

In recent years, the biomass sector has grown significantly. The commercial sector has happily welcomed this technology, and already received billions of £’s worth of funding through the governments RHI (Renewable Heat Incentive) scheme. This is a great opportunity for you to start turning waste wood into profit for your business. In 2017 the government renewed its commitment to the RHI by announcing the reformed RHI.

What does the reformed RHI involve?

The reformed renewable heat incentive will introduce some modifications to the scheme, whilst keeping the essence of the scheme very similar. It will still provide businesses with a cash incentive for every kilowatt hour of energy they generate from renewable energy/renewable heating technology, so long as it is 20 years index-linked and guaranteed once accepted onto the RHI scheme. Businesses all around Britain have installed biomass systems to provide space and process heating.

The majority of these installations, however, have been designed to run on virgin wood chip or wood pellet fuel. but it is possible to obtain the RHI for biomass systems running on waste wood. The regulations regarding the definition of ‘waste wood’ and the emissions controls required when burning the various categories of ‘waste wood’ are complex but Biomass Boiler Services Ltd. are able to assist with initial guidance, designing and providing a technical solution to suit individual business opportunity / requirements.

The initial wave of proposed changes to the Domestic Scheme starting coming into effect on the 20th of September 2017. These changes include: tariff uplifts for air source heat pumps (ASHP), ground source heat pumps (GSHP), and biomass plants; and the introduction of annual heat demand limits for ASHPs, GSHPs, and biomass plants. The amendments will also extend the scheme’s budget management mechanisms until July 2018.
