Biomass is a renewable energy source that can be used to heat your home.

Although a biomass heating system burns organic material to produce heat and hot water, it releases a lot less carbon dioxide than fossil fuels and the organic material can be sustainably resourced.

How does biomass work?

Biomass systems work by burning wood pellets, chips or logs in a boiler that produces heat to feeds into your central heating and hot water systems. Biomass can generate electricity in a number of ways – but the most common is direct combustion. This means burning the agricultural waste or wood to heat water. There are many other ways to generate electricity using biomass. Bioenergy is one of the most important sources of renewable energy with wood and wood residues being the largest biomass energy source today.

What are biofuels?

Biofuels are fuels that are made out of biomass. These can be solid, liquid, or gas. You can use biofuel energy in your own home, for example, with a wood-burning stove or boiler. Thermal conversion processes use heat as the dominant mechanism to upgrade biofuels into a better and more practical fuel.
