Return on Investment
A Waste Management Centre will qualify for the Non-Domestic RHI and, as such, be eligible for incentive payments for a period of 20 years, providing sizeable returns on investment that are index linked to protect against annual inflation.
A pre-application for the RHI can be commenced as soon as a decision is made and order placed for a Waste2Heat biomass solution. Although the RHI is subject to potential tariff digression each quarter, once you have completed this pre-application your tariff rate is secured, protected from digression and index linked to protect against inflation.
Once your Waste2Heat system is installed and operationally complete, the RHI pre-application is advanced to a full RHI application. RHI approval can be completed within 2 weeks, but can take several weeks, once approved RHI payments are paid by Ofgem, on behalf of the Government, and the first payment is always back-dated to the operationally complete date.
Fuel Supply Eligibility for RHI

If your chosen Industrial Emissions Directive (IED 2010/75/EU) biomass boiler is rated less than 1MW in energy output, then your waste wood fuel needs to be registered for selfsupply. The Biomass Suppliers List (BSL) was introduced by the Department of Energy and Climate Change (DECC) in April 2014. It supports the Government’s Renewable Heat Incentive (RHI) scheme by ensuring that RHI payments are only issued to biomass boilers using wood fuel that meets certain sustainability and legality requirements.
The BSL was introduced primarily to ensure good practice within the biomass wood fuel supply market. However, as a Waste Management Centre would be utilising its own waste wood source then it is required to register the fuel being used.
Above 1 MW
If your chosen Waste Combustion Directive biomass boiler is rated as greater than 1MW in energy output then there is no requirement to register for self-supply on the Biomass Suppliers List, however, a Waste Management Centre will be required to keep a record and submit, quarterly, the volume of waste wood biomass used as fuel, referred to as ‘self-reporting’ by the Department of Energy and Climate Change (DECC).
