Waste To Energy

wood waste

Using food waste and wood waste as a renewable energy

The food waste and wood waste to energy solution enables companies that produce or have access to quantities of food or wood waste material to use this as fuel for a proven biomass boiler and feed system which generates heat and hot water (or steam/thermal oil). The systems supplied and installed by Ashwell Biomass can minimise your disposal costs and generating Renewable Heat Incentive (RHI) income.

Converting food waste into energy

Ashwell Biomass along with leading food waste experts have developed a scale-able food waste to energy solution. Converting food waste into energy biomass process takes food waste and creates a valuable resource, biomass fuel. The system comprises a food dryer and a specially designed biomass energy plant. The drier food fuels the plant which generates heat and hot water (or steam/thermal oil).

  • Food waste disposal costs are eliminated
  • Reduced or eliminated fossil fuel costs
  • Tried and tested technology
  • Full support, back up and training packages available
  • Some solutions are suitable for Renewable Heat Incentive (RHI) payments

A food dryer is used to dry and powder the food wastes. Once dried the now stable and almost odourless material can be stored, or transported for immediate use to fuel the biomass system. The powdered food wastes which are extremely high in calorific value are loaded in to the hopper and the automated feed process looks after the feeding of the biomass system. The food waste to energy package is sized to the volume of food waste and heat demand.

The system is very easily connected/integrated in to your existing heating system thus vastly reducing or eliminating your existing fossil fuel bills. The system can run solely on dried food wastes or on a combination of wood pellets and dried food waste for those site that have a heating requirement larger than the amount of food waste generated.

Converting wood waste into energy

Ashwell Biomass, the UK's original biomass specialists with over 100 years of experience in solid fuel handling has used our expertise to develop a wood waste to energy solution.

Converting wood waste into energy enables companies that produce or have access to quantities of wood waste material to use this as fuel for a proven biomass boiler and feed system which generates heat and hot water (or steam/thermal oil). This will minimise disposal costs and generate Renewable Heat Incentive (RHI) income.

  • Wood waste disposal costs are minimised
  • Reduced or eliminated fossil fuel costs
  • Tried and tested technology
  • Full support, back up and training packages available
  • Suitable for Renewable Heat Incentive (RHI) payments

Ashwell Biomass will work with you to assess whether the wood waste material is suitable, or advise ways to help ensure it becomes suitable. This can be by means of preliminary onsite sorting, excess dust extraction or the inclusion of a ceramic filtration system. The boiler is sized to take in to account the volume of waste wood and heat demand.

The system is very easily connected/integrated in to your existing system thus vastly reducing or eliminating your existing fossil fuel bills. The system can run solely on chipped wood waste or on standard specification wood chip for those sites that have a heating requirement larger than the amount of waste wood generated.
