Wood Chips: crisis resistant fuel
Cheap and energy-efficient heating with wood chips
Wood chips are produced from wood waste from domestic forests and the sawmill industry. Ideally, the scrap wood should be stored for one year to dry in breezy and sunny conditions. In autumn, the wood can be processed and chopped into wood chips – making it the perfect local fuel for your wood chip boilers.
Farmers and forest owners use wood chips for their own heating or supply the biomass fuel to local companies or public buildings.
