In a heating context, "Biomass" is the name given to organic material that can be used as fuel. The new generation of "multi-fuel" biomass boilers supplied by Central Group are up to 96% efficient and can burn wood logs, wood pellets and wood chips. They can also burn cereals and miscantus.

Less woody biomass going to landfill means less methane and reduced CO2 emissions.
Biomass ash is full of nutrients, so makes great compost for your garden.
