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.

Advantages of using wood chips for heating

Advantages for industrial and public facilities

  • Cost-efficient fuel with maximum comfort
  • Crisis-resistant local fuel
  • Independent from oil and gas
  • Supplied by regional partners
  • Creates value for the local economy
  • Efficient fuel for the eco-friendly wood chip boilers

Compared to fossil fuel, electricity, or heat pumps, using wood chips or pellets for heating is the best choice.

Advantages for forest-owners and farmers

  • Use of waste and scrap wood
  • Additional income from selling wood chips for heating
  • Minimal workload due to the automatic chip production
  • Reduced workload due to a fully automatic heating system and a refuelling system
  • Efficient fuel for eco-friendly wood-chip boilers
