Biomass fuel harvested for ecofriendly boilers

Birmingham— This past year’s harvesting of over 50 hectares of commercially grown willow began at Dunstall Court, Feckenham, Worcestershire. Once dried, the willow woodchip is used as an environmentally friendly fuel in woodchip burning boilers.

A recent report by the Biomass Task Force concluded that fuel from forestry, crops and waste could reduce the nation’s carbon emissions by almost three million tons a year if used to provide heating. The carbon saving would be the equivalent of taking 3.25 million cars off the road.
