Using low grade waste wood

Whilst it makes no sense to use high grade biomass as a fuel to dry more high grade biomass, it does however provide a viable solution to use low grade waste wood as a fuel to dry higher grade material. For this reason, good quality and efficient biomass boilers  provide an ideal combustion system for using material that would ordinarily not be as sellable.

The key to utilising biomass fuel as the heat inout for drying is the ability to burn low grade fuel such as:

  • Chip from 'lop and top' and brash wood with higher bark:wood ratio
  • Sawdust & shavings
  • rape straw and miscanthus
