Take Responsibility and Reduce Your Carbon Footprint
According to new analysis from Carbon Brief, the UK is now halfway to meeting its target of “net-zero” emissions by 2050, a huge achievement in the commitment to reducing global carbon emissions.
To keep up the pace, it was recently announced that the UK government will set the world’s most ambitious climate change target into law to reduce emissions by 78% by 2035 compared to 1990 levels.
For organisations producing emissions, the emphasis on meeting emissions limits set by their environmental regulator is stronger than ever.
Biomass boilers produce emissions just like any other boilers, therefore it is imperative that owners of biomass boilers take responsibility and reduce their carbon footprint.
To meet regulations, only appropriate biomass fuel should be used for the particular specification design of your boiler installation. This is especially important if you are operating an RHI Accredited boiler, as to not meet these limits could put your tariff at risk.
By demonstrating an environmentally friendly attitude to the operation of your boiler, you can meet ongoing environmental/RHI standards and minimise emissions, therefore supporting the UK’s drive to net zero.
Understanding the composition of your material is key. Regular fuel analysis can build a reliable profile of your fuel and give you a better understanding of its value and environmental impact.
