People across the South West associate Andigestion with Anaerobic Digestion and Food Waste Collections, however, did you know we also sell wood chip for biomass boilers??
Why do Andigestion sell wood chip you may ask?
Well, as part of Andigestion’s drive for energy efficiency, we don't like to waste anything, so we use innovative solutions to maximise our positive effect on the environment.
Andigestion collects food waste from Local Councils, Food Manufacturers, Hotels, restaurants pubs and so on… we create methane from the food waste in a process called Anaerobic Digestion, this Methane Gas is burnt in engines to create electricity that is sent to the National Grid. Our engines as with most engines also produce heat, normally this heat is just a by-product, (a bit like the heat that comes off your car engine). Andigestion found that local Farmers were investing in Biomass Boilers to heat their sheds during winter, these farmers needed a regular supply of dried wood chip and were struggling to get a consistent product from suppliers of seasoned wood chip that can take up to 18 months to dry.
Andigestion invested in a drying solution to take heat from its engines and dry wood chip in 3 days to consistent moisture content and allowing its Biomass customers to produce more energy with less weight of chip.
If you have a wood chip biomass boiler or are considering investing in one, get in touch to find out how Andigestion can help.
