Our biomass boiler was installed as part of our efforts to reduce our carbon footprint and wider environmental impact.
We now use about 400 tonnes of woodchip annually in the biomass boiler, replacing up to 80,000 litres of oil! Not only is this much cheaper, but woodchip is renewable, almost completely carbon neutral and reduces the need for disruptive oil drilling.
What we love about the biomass burner is that the whole tree can be made use of. This includes all the bent, knotty bits of wood which are no good for other purposes. Grown sustainably on the estate, with next to no transport emissions, our wood is a truly green and renewable source of energy.
