Biomass is all biodegradable remains and waste of organic origin. Biomass that can be used for heating is above all plant origin waste: from wood and agricultural industry, its processing and remains after maintenance of forest and green urban areas and other wasteland.
Take care of the environment and your finances
The main advantages of using biomass for heating purposes are low costs of this fuel and ecology. Apart from energy crops, biomass for burning comes from waste that is to be disposed of. Amount of chemical compounds produced during combustion is minimal – the Pellas X burners meet requirements of class 5 flue gas emission standard. Amount of CO₂ produced is equal to the amount of carbon dioxide that plants absorbed from the atmosphere in the photosynthesis process during their growth.
Not only pellets
The most common fuels produced from biomass are wood pellets and agri-pellets. However, on the market there is also available other plant waste that can be used as fuel, all the more its calorific value is comparable to that of pellets. According to the tests of biomass combustion carried out in the Pellas X burners, we can also recommend combustion of the following biomass:
- Cherry pits
- Crushed olive pits
The value of a particular biomass type as a fuel may differ because of its origin, quality, cleanliness and humidity. Nevertheless, biomass of good quality will be burnt evenly and minimal amount of ash will be left after its combustion. Apart from a price, availability is the most important factor when selecting other biomass than pellets.
