Carbon emissions of different fuels – Forest Research
Fuels for heating and power These represent figures for the carbon or carbon dioxide emitted by full combustion of each fuel, per unit of energy. Note that life cycle CO2 emissions depend strongly upon details of supply chains, production techniques, forestry or agricultural practice, transport distances, etc.
Heating fuels comparison | OVO Energy
Biomass is a heating fuel made mainly of wood. You need a great deal of wood to generate the amount of heat you need, so you will need plenty of storage space if you choose this option. A biomass boiler may be a sensible option if you’re not on mains gas and you live in a woodland area where local farmers and landowners sell and deliver logs.
Introduction to biomass boilers – TheGreenAge
Biomass fuels are considered a renewable fuel – the carbon dioxide they produce when they are burnt is offset by the carbon dioxide they absorb while they are growing. Savings in carbon dioxide emissions are significant – up to 9.5 tonnes per year when a wood boiler replaces a …
