Biomass Wood Fired Boilers
BIOMASS WOOD FIRED BOILERS FITTED WITH A CYCLONE WILL NOT COMPLY WITH RHI.
Biomass wood fired boiler emissions are referred to as PM10 (particulate matter up to 10 micron) and PM2.5 (particulate matter up to 2.5 micron). Emissions are expressed as g/GJ the current level being 30g/GJ which equates to around 30mg/m3.
It is common knowledge within the Filtration Society that cyclones cannot reduce emissions below 75 mg/m3. All competent boiler manufactures are aware of this.
As at July 2014 Glosfume have installed over 400 ceramic filter installations replacing ineffective cyclones.
The first Glosfume biomass ceramic filter installation was during 2007 at Ladyloan School which reduced the emission to below 1mg/m3. Each year the ceramic filter collects 150kg of PM10 & PM2.5 the boiler is only rated at 400kW. To date the filter still operates with the original set of elements.

PM2.5 are the more dangerous particles they contain toxic elements which travel deeper into the lung which causes cancer, for details visit
How Biomass works:
All major Biomass Wood Fired Boiler manufactures use Glosfume BMF filters.
