Biomass boilers

Biomass boilers: generating heat from the biomass

Biomass boilers produce heat from naturally-sourced renewable raw materials. The biomass used to produce the heat is sourced from living organic or plant matter in the earth.

The biomass boilers on offer from Eneria burn pellets for powers below 1 MW, and pieces of wood (chips and residue from forestry operations), straw and slurry for powers above 1 MW.

The advantages of biomass heat

Biomass boilers produce energy from a naturally-sourced and renewable fuel that is locally available in abundant quantities.

Biomass boilers can be connected to your existing heating system to supplement the generator.

Thanks to their natural components, biomass boilers emit little polluting gas. Their impact in terms of CO2 emissions is particularly low.

You can make savings with a biomass boiler. The resources used to produce biomass energy are cheap in comparison with the resources required to fuel conventional heating systems. Biomass is also unaffected by rises in the price of fuel oil, electricity and gas.

How does a biomass boiler work?


Heating and water distribution

Eneria can propose a turnkey contract that extends from the audit (energy balance) and the design (integration of the best possible technologies), to the installation and daily support from our services and maintenance department.

Eneria’s experts provide support throughout your biomass project and beyond: sizing of the installation, administrative formalities and application for subsidies, combination with other heat sources, installation, commissioning, operation and servicing of the boiler.

Our biomass boiler installations

In July 2021, the Jacques Brel high school in Saint-Pons-de-Thomières, France issued a call for tender, which was awarded to Eneria, to install a wood pellet-fired boiler as part of its decarbonisation strategy.
