We are a team of professionals dealing with the economical aspect of the UK ecological situation solution. We deal with this aspect from the point of view of a single person in relation to society.
Our main philosophy is based on the principle of synergy: the interaction of multiple elements in a system produces an effect greater than the sum of their individual effects; in short this may mean that one plus one equals three (or more).
There is a hidden potential behind the ecological issue with wooden waste. Money-wise, this potential can be utilised, by using affordable technology, into a product with a certain market value. This means that you can reduce or even remove waste management and landfill expenses, gain a valuable product at the same time (wooden briquettes in this case) and reduce the heavy load we put on our environment in two important areas:
- You will not contribute to the landfill.
- The energy and heat gained from briquettes, i.e. from waste, will replace the energy needed to generate heat from limited sources of our planet.
There were 1.4 million tons of wooden waste disposed to landfill in the UK in 2012. The energy consumption of one average household is around 15,200 kWh for heating and hot water, which equals approximately 3.7 tons of briquettes with a calorific value of 15Mj/kg. As a result, one year’s worth of wooden waste would cover heating and hot water for nearly 380,000 households.
This example is only about the passive use of already existing wooden waste. By adding the wastage leftover from the agricultural produce, i.e. biomass; plus energy crops, this number is multiplied several times over.
The government knows about this and supports the transformation process by various means, e.g. it offers financial grants to companies and households that decided to change their old boiler to a biomass boiler.
Every one of us can make this small step towards economically sound betterment of our environment. We’ve done ours by designing and manufacturing affordable, durable and low energy consumption briquetting machines.
