The Climate Challenge
What is Biomass?
Biomass is where an organic element is used as a fuel to generate a source of energy. This energy can then be injected into the mains grid to power your ecohome, and also potentially create an income. Biomass boilers combust sustainably sourced biomass wood pellets. The carbon dioxide released during the process is off-set against the carbon dioxide absorbed while the tree was growing. This means that a biomass pellet boiler is essentially a carbon neutral alternative heating solution for homes.
Biomass Boiler Housing Solutions
A biomass pellet boiler is significantly larger than a run-of-the-mill boiler. Add to this, space for biomass pellet storage. If you decide on this particular sustainable heating option, you will require a boiler room building to house the equipment. Our containers are ideally suited to this. Not only does a container serve as a tidy boiler enclosure, but is also big enough to store biomass wood pellets. More than that, for additional machinery, like a biomass pellet hopper, a steel container is more than adequate. Consequently, the market for Biomass Boiler Containers is growing rapidly. Before investing in this type of eco friendly house project, consider some of the benefits of using a modified shipping container to house a biomass boiler:
1. Environmental Benefits
Biomass pellet boilers are beneficial for the environment, due to using renewable energy resources and having reduced CO2 emissions. This compares favourably with other energy sources, such as fossil fuels. Biomass boilers also have a simple and efficient installation method.
2. Economic Benefits
Opting for a biomass boiler is an economically sound choice, on top of the comprehensive environmental benefits. Prior to having one installed, we advise that you check whether you are eligible for funding under the government’s renewable heat incentive.
3. Cost Benefits
Containers converted as such are very cost effective. Some 40ft units can break even after just 5 years.
4. Security Benefits
They can easily be converted to your own specifications and have a high level of security.
5. Transportation Benefits
