Biomass boilers

A biomass boiler will lower your energy costs

Biomass Boiler Wood Pellet System

The latest biomass boilers are affordable and brilliantly cost effective. They’re suitable for supplying businesses and homes with much cheaper, sustainable heating and hot water.
Find the ideal biomass boiler for your space with PLQ Pellets.

Switching to a biomass wood boiler pays

Use wood pellet fuel, and you’ll save up to 40% compared to present fossil fuel prices. Wood pellets burn ‘clean’, burn longer, and are easier to store too.

That’s not all. The government’s Renewable Heat Incentive (RHI) can cover the costs of a brand new wood biomass boiler (including installation), and give you a generous cash incentive for switching to wood fuel for up to 20 years.

The scheme has been in operation for commercial biomass boiler users for some time now, with RHI for domestic users launched this April 2014. Find out more below.

There’s a limited amount of money set aside for the scheme. That’s why now is the best time to switch to a biomass water or steam boiler.

Domestic and commercial biomass boilers

We’re working with our biomass boiler partners to offer efficient and environmentally friendly technology for heating systems using logs, wood pellets and wood chip. Clean emissions, minimal energy requirements, simplicity of use and reliable operation are essential elements of our products.

We also provide a range of boilers from 200KW to 5MW for commercial and industrial use, as well as large houses. They burn wood chip and wood pellets with a moisture content of up to 45%.The boilers are constructed with a self-bearing structure of thick steel plate with a high mechanical strength and a high-volume, wet-wall combustion chamber with refractory lining of a high aluminium content.

*All boilers are MCS certified and all engineers used are MCS certified and HETAS registered.

Benefits of using Biomass

Gilles boiler Carbon lean fuel: Produces a fraction of the carbon emissions of fossil fuels.

Locally sourced: Biomass can be sourced within the UK on an indefinite basis, contributing to security of supply.

Sustainable: Biomass is harvested as part of a constantly replenished crop.

Economy: UK sourced Biomass can offer local business opportunities and support the rural economy.

Renewable Heat Incentive (RHI)

Your wood boiler could be generating heat and cash...

The Renewable Heat Incentive Scheme offers financial incentives for switching to renewable forms of heating such as wood pellet steam and water boilers. Interested?

The UK government has introduced the scheme to encourage people to change to heat generation via renewable sources. It applies to qualifying biomass installations and includes commercial and industrial scale biomass boilers. Once the system is installed you measure how much heat your renewable energy system produces. You receive a fixed amount based on the output, the type of technology and the size of the system.

You can find more information on the RHI scheme at

A group of "progressive Conservatives" has pledged to put the UK's green economy at the centre of the party's 2015 general election campaign and make sustainable energy generation the "norm" by 2020. See more at

“I am very pleased with my order from PLQ wood pellets thank you! I found the staff at PLQ very helpful and answered my initial queries from point of order to arranging delivery.

The pellets are very good quality and arrived in manageable sized bags. I will definitely be placing my next order with PLQ Wood Pellets”

“I have used wood pellets for years now, finding it the most economical bedding. Some batches from the cheaper competitors simply didnt break down at all and ended up being false economy.

PLQ wood pellets however have introduced pellets that are as competitive in price to the cheaper brands but also crumble effectively. I’ve trialled a pallet, and have just reordered more with a view to taking a lorry load.

Would definitely recommend”
