Biomass for the Agricultural industry

The Agriculture industry has a high demand for heat throughout the year. Biomass is suitable when large amounts of heat are needed on demand, in applications including:

  • Poultry barns
  • Dairies
  • Crop drying and storage
  • Horticulture

By switching from conventional fossil fuels to biomass, you can make dramatic cost savings, as well as reducing your carbon footprint.

AvantiRenewables offers two installation options. Where capital is not available, the on-site model offers an RHI-supported ‘fund and facilitate’ scheme where the 20 years’ security of an owned and operated facility can give you peace of mind.

Where capital is available, the equipment sale model allows you to buy and install the equipment from AvantiRenewables, with optional operational support services provided as required.

Benefits of renewable energy from AvantiRenewables include:

• Biomass fuel is cheaper than conventional fossil fuels. Because of the high energy content, switching to biomass can save you up to 30%-50% on heating costs *reference.

• Prices for biomass fuel are traditionally more stable than that of conventional fossil fuels, helping you forecast and budget more accurately.

• Biomass is carbon neutral. The carbon dioxide emitted when wood fuel is burned is the same amount that was absorbed over the years the plant was growing. As long as new plants continue to grow in place of those used for fuel, the process is sustainable.

• Due to the efficiency of biomass boilers, they only produce 1-2% of ash. When fitted with an automated vacuum system, ash removal is usually only required once every 6 months.

With our onsite option, there’s no capital outlay, and you get all the benefits of 24 hour technical support and emergency call outs. Find out how you can get all the benefits of biomass with AvantiRenewables by clicking here, or calling 0808 191 0000.

​Once planning permission is received (if required) the typical installation lead time is round 4 weeks.

​Yes, your existing heating system can be connected to the biomass system, minimizing disruption.
