Biomass Wood Fuel from Sewstern

 

The Brooks Bros site at Sewstern (near Grantham) recently received recognition as a UK authorised BSL* supplier of G30 woodchip.

 

As the Home Grown Timber Division of Brooks Bros (UK) Ltd, woodchip is produced on-site from its’ own sawmill residue. This allows the site to produce wood-fuel to the required, exacting standards of moisture content and chip size profile. The G30 woodchip is a mix of 90% European Oak, 5% native Douglas Fir and native Larch, and 5% Ash, Elm and Sweet Chestnut – sourced from FSC®, PEFC and some non-accredited material.

 

The woodchip is sold by weight and supplied loose from 1.5 tonnes up to 24 tonne ‘artic’ loads. Customers collect from the site in Sewstern where it is loaded directly on to customer’s trailers/transport.

 

Compared to oil and natural gas, woodchip can be a cost effective fuel alternative. For details of pricing and availability call 01476 861097 or email biofuelsales@brookstimber.co.uk.

 

*BSL (The Biomass Suppliers List) is accessible at http://biomass-suppliers-list.service.gov.uk/. It contains a list of Renewable Heat Incentive (RHI) eligible wood-fuels and biomass suppliers who are registered to meet its sustainability criteria. Fuel must meet a lifecycle greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions criteria of 60 per cent GHG savings against the EU fossil fuel average, and the land criteria – which for wood-fuel are set out in the UK Timber Standard for Heat and Electricity.
