What are biomass pellets?
Biomass pellets, or wood pellets, are made from pure compressed sawdust. They are used in biomass boilers, which have become increasingly popular in recent years as a source of heating. The popularity of domestic boilers has soared in response to government schemes, such as the Renewable Heat Incentive (RHI), which promote the use of renewable energy by providing financial incentives. The RHI has very strict criteria that its recipients must adhere to, including the quality of the pellets used in eligible boilers.
We stock RHI approved Balcas Brites biomass pellets for use in biomass boilers. Brites are very high quality pellets, manufactured in the UK from sustainably sourced timber. They are fully compliant with RHI requirements and are certified ENplusA1. Balcas Brites are registered on the Biomass Suppliers List (BSL).
The Wood Fuel Co-operative BSL registration number for Balcas Brites is BSL0048105-0004. All purchases come with a BSL compliant receipt.
Balcas make their Brites pellets from sustainably sourced softwoods. The wood is washed, dried and debarked before being compressed into pellets. Our weekly deliveries ensure we always have fresh stock in place. The international standard ENplus seal stands for low emissions and trouble-free heating with high energy value. The A1 designation assures you that the pellets have been manufactured from de-barked timber to ensure a low ash content and that they are free from added chemicals.
Use our Balcas Brites biomass pellets in biomass boilers. They are not suitable for use in wood-burning stoves, multi-fuel stoves, or open fires.
