Web210630: Replacing fossil fuels with bioenergy for covered horticulture is now mainstream

About this webinar

With the large amount of covered horticulture that is transitioning from using fossil fuels to using bioenergy for heating it is time to see what we have learnt from transitions which have already occurred, and share that information with growers who are considering moving from fossil fuels.

This webinar will use a number of case studies to show how successful moving to bioenergy has been and be a forum for asking questions and learning from the best.

The use of bioenergy for heating has been growing over the last decade and now there are a well established foundation of biomass fuel suppliers, consultants and equipment suppliers in most regions. The biomass concept is well-proven and with an experienced partner it can be customised, integrated, and engineered for the needs of your business.

Biomass fuel is fully renewable and can be sustainably sourced for many years into the future. Unlike fossil fuels the user can strategically ensure that their fuel will never run out by partnering with land owners, forest managers, fuel suppliers and even growing their own on any unused land.

Getting the right biomass boiler system and its optimal size depends on specific application characteristics.

With demonstration sites in most regions it is becoming easier to go talk to others. This webinar will help you know the questions you should ask.
