Why choose Biomass?

There is a clear advantage gained by using a biomass boiler with a wet heating system in poultry units.

  • Extremely low CO levels compared to oil or gas heating which gives a better working environment
  • Dryer litter, reducing bedding costs
  • Birds spread evenly over unit
  • Better environment for birds to thrive
  • Massive savings with reduced fuel spend
