Why Hoval’s biomass boiler might be the thing to keep your business sustainable

The latest stats by the Office for National statistics suggest that the UK is on track to meet its renewable energy goals. According to expert analyses, wind power substituting for gas and coal use has driven down greenhouse gas emissions, putting the UK halfway to fulfilling its commitment to produce 15 per cent of its energy from renewable sources by 2020, under targets commissioned by the European Union.

But it’s also down to home and businesses owners opting for more sustainable heating options, Hoval’s biomass boiler being but one example. A case in point is a recent installation by Stroud School in Hampshire, which, as part of its drive to improve sustainability and reduce carbon emissions, has installed Hoval biomass boilers to provide space heating and domestic hot water for the main school building and two new buildings. Now, the resolution of a single establishment might seem paltry in the grand scheme of things but is nonetheless a significant contribution in the county’s efforts to ‘go green’. (Many such contributions make a difference.)

The two 160 kW BioLyt biomass boilers supplied by Hoval use wood pellets as an alternative to fossil fuels and are thus particularly suited to the school’s rural location. The BioLyt is however suited to any plant room; even in cramped conditions, the boiler can be easily introduced into building systems, and is suitable for both new build and existing system upgrades with easy access.

Hoval describes its BioLyt biomass boiler as:

  • Very low environmental impact
  • Rapid return on investment
  • An ideal choice when updating your system
  • Easy to use and reliable.

Two 4000 litre buffer vessels were also supplied to Stroud School by Hoval, which boast a maximum working pressure of 3 bar g (with larger vessels available on request).
