Woodfuel

BMR has been encouraging farm woodland owners to produce woodchips from their woodlands, or from timber they’ve bought from another farmer. The purpose of this is for the woodland owners to maximise potential incomes from farm woodlands and to provide fuel for local biomass boilers. Some farm owners have weigh bridges, so woodchips can be weighed when sold. BMR acts as an agent for these woodchip producers and sources fuel for customers from the producer who is closest.

The RHI (Renewable Heat Incentive), which pays biomass boiler owners to produce heat, has provided farm woodland owners with an incentive to create woodchips, as many owners who have installed woodchip boilers have done so to fuel grain drying floors. When not drying grain, they can dry woodchips. The duel income achieved from drying woodchips and then selling them has delivered profits to local farmers, especially when they have used timber from their own woodlands, as they only pay harvesting and extraction costs. The BMR members who are supplying chip are either already registered on the BSL (Biomass Suppliers List) or will be registered by the deadline in October 2015.

Several BMR members produce woodchips for biomass boilers. The producers are BSL-registered and the chips contain <30% moisture content and are grade G30. If you require woodchips for your boiler BMR can source them from the closest suplier to you, which minimises haulage costs. Alternatively you can collect them directly from the producer. BMR can supply woodchips for a competitive price. Call BMR to discuss delivery options and prices.
