Biomass and Air Quality Information For Developers This leaflet explains how biomass burning boilers can affect air quality, and what this means for the planning process for devel-opments containing a biomass boiler or combined heat and power (CHP) unit. Use of renewable fuels such as biomass can cut emissions of the green-

heating and/ or hot water, or in a Combined Heat and Power (CHP) unit to produce both heat and electricity. This guidance uses the term 'biomass boilers' to cover both boilers and CHP units. 1.8 The burning of waste wood may be subject to more stringent environmental regulation than the burning of clean, new wood.
Using typical boiler and steam turbine generating efficiencies, 100 MMBtu/hr heat input provides about 10 MW electric output. The two most commonly used types of boilers for biomass firing are stoker boilers and fluidized bed boilers. Either of these can be fueled entirely by biomass fuel or cofired with a combination of biomass and coal.

boiler plant can respond to changes in demand for heat. As a result, different operational strategies are needed for biomass boilers compared with oil or gas boilers. 2.1 Conventions This guide uses the following conventions when referring to: Biomass system A heating or combined heat and power (CHP) 1 Department of Energy & Climate Change, which
The operation and maintenance of biomass boiler systems have a major impact on their performance, both in terms of efficiency and atmospheric emissions. This simple guidance is written for owners and users of biomass systems, primarily within the domestic or small commercial sectors, who are operating biomass boilers on wood pellets, chips or logs.
