Waste2Heat

Reliable, WID Compliant Waste Wood Biomass Boiler Systems

What is Waste Wood Biomass?

Waste Wood Biomass used waste wood, for example collected ata  Waste Management Centre, to power a WID compliant Biomass Boiler.

This on-site combustion of 1,000’s of tonnes of waste wood removes the costs of disposing of the waste wood from site but also generates heat to dry other waste materials. The drying process typically removes 20% of moisture per tonne dried, similarly reducing the cost of transporting and landfilling the dried waste by the same percentage.

Investors in Waste Wood Biomass will also benefit from the government backed grant scheme, the Renewable Heat Incentive (RHI). The generation of ‘process heat for drying’ using wood waste material is eligible for quarterly cash payments, guaranteed under government legislation, paid for a period of 20 years.

Waste Wood Biomass Regulations

Under current Environmental Permitting (England and Wales) Regulations 2016, it is possible  to incinerate Grade A, B and C waste wood, in turn generating heat to dry other waste material on site, if using an IED (WID) compliant biomass boiler.  Whilst Industrial Emissions Directive (IED 2010/75/EU) compliant biomass boilers are not niche technology, they are very different from the mainstream biomass boilers you may be familiar with for domestic and commercial use.

An IED (WID) compliant boiler is a true industrial boiler with the robust build and design which has been designed to withstand the rigours of handling a varied mix of fuel waste wood fuel. Rated for over 8,000 running hours per annum, compared to standard biomass boiler ratings of typically 2,500 running hours per annum.

When talking to a renewable energy company, to ensure that they are a waste wood biomass specialist, ensure that their biomass offering is IED (WID) compliant, with a fuel system that can feed a wide range of waste woods, in variable chip sizes and higher moisture content. By questioning any potential renewable suppliers on IED (WID) compliance, permitting requirements, initial and secondary filtration it will be relatively easy to identify those that are familiar with waste wood biomass systems and waste management requirements, and those that are hesitant or vague in response.

What return can you expect from Waste Wood Biomass?

A basic Waste Wood Biomass system will incinerate over 2,500 tonnes of waste wood per annum, and has been found to typically provide a cost benefit of over £100 per tonne combusted, an annual cost reduction of £150,000 in waste wood disposal costs plus reduced transport and landfill costs provided by the moisture content reduction of over £350,000. A Waste2Heat system will additionally generate RHI payments of circa £200,000 per annum.

A POSSIBLE TOTAL BENEFIT OF OVER £700,000 A YEAR, FOR 20 YEARS, INCREASING WITH INFLATION, SO IF INFLATION AVERAGES 3% THAT’S £18,800,000 OVER 20 YEARS – OVER 18 MILLION POUNDS!
