Ignis Biomass’s facilities focus on maximising the efficient use of the energy content of the locally derived supply of wood, by creating renewable heat, as well as renewable electricity. The size and scale of each facility is matched to the quantity of wood available within each specific area. The heat supply can be tailored specifically for local use via district heating schemes or for industrial processes; thus providing a renewable energy alternative to consumers, reducing their reliance on finite energy sources and improving their own renewable energy compliance and energy security targets.
The Ignis Biomass approach produces significant annual reductions in CO2 emissions; from the the use of waste wood as renewable energy, and from diversion of waste from landfill, which would create methane, a greenhouse gas 21 times more powerful than carbon dioxide. A typical plant can reduce carbon dioxide emissions by more than 20 000 tonnes per year, (equivalent to the emissions from over 6000 average sized cars). This approach is a double win for the environment – less fossil fuel use and less landfill.
