    Sustainable fuel is the future! The problem with "green" fuels at the moment is by the time you have processed it and the driven it half way round the country or to power plants you have lost any benefit and in my opinion environmental benefits!

    There is a burner on the market built to take arb or tree surgeons quality chip that contains quite a lot of green leaf matter. Power stations basically have 3 grades with arb chip being the lowest and pure chip been the highest.

    The beauty of these burners that take green chip is it can be sourced locally and uses a lower quality and priced chip. The boiler has 2 stages for the chip, one for burning and one for drying pre burn. These burners that utile a local product must be better than driving chip all round the country!?

    Hi Nitroexpress

    could you PM me your contact info as I have to run an event in Warwickshire later in the year on managing woodlands for woodfuel and biodiversity and it may be something we could link up on?

    Totally agree with your comment & it something I have thought about carefully - I am only doing local fuel chip (only the boiler sales are nationwide).

    I also operate companies which deliver aggrgates & collect garden waste for composting ~ It will be key to our model / sustainablity to utilise vehicles which are already on the road to either do a 'backload' or as a 'milk round' with other products going out.

    I am presently with a major company located in Austria producing gas engines and so now I do have a lot of interest in the future of alternative energy sourcing.
    I have learnt a lot at this company about flaregas/landfill gas/furnace gas/woodgas etc gaseous fuels being used worldwide to feed these huge 4 stroke engines, the main supplier of them in the UK is Clarke power.
    It has really added an interesting supplement to my 40 year engineering background plus where i am living in Germany is over 60% woodland and the waste usage is a major topic most evenings in my local pub as a lot of folks in my village own some small woodland parcels.
    The future really is as you said decentralised energy as moving chips/pellets and other composting material across country is counterproductive.
    It surprises me that in Germany there are ca. 3000 biomass energy units and I believe in the UK presently only 60 units. With a lot of green waste in the UK this has also got to be the future way to go.

    We have a bio mass powerstaion nr to us and it is taking all the timber from a 100+ mile radius to keep it going .It is taking timber away from other users because they are willing to pay more because of the subs that they claim on the powerstation one local chipboard manufacture strugled to get enough timber to keep it runing on all its shifts last year because of the shortage of timber!!! .

    That’s a problem with the classification of materials - there is plenty ofwoody material available for larger biomass facilities from compostingoperations. Unfortunately the public in the UK is very bad at keeping plastics& other 'tramp' materials out of the green waste going to compostingfacilities which makes the biomass wood from the composting process'contaminated' even though it’s a small percentage compared to the woodcontent.

    TRUST ME IT’S NOT EASY TO GET IT OUT ON A LARGE SCALE OPERATION!
