3 ANGUS BIOFUELS MAIN BUSINESS ACTIVITIES FORESTRY OWNER WOODCHIP PRODUCER BOILER INSTALLATION HEAT SUPPLY CONTRACTS

4 BIOMASS PLANT SITUATED AT DRAGONHALL FARM, PADANARAM, BY FORFAR OPENED BY JOHN SWINNEY PROJECT COSTS: £1.2 MILLION

6 ISSUES IN SETTING UP PLANT LOCATION TO TIMBER SUPPLY LOCATION TO BOILERS CAPITAL COST GRANT ASSISTED BY SSBS QUALITY OF CHIP MOISTURE CONTENT OF CHIP SIZE OF CHIP HANDLING OF WOOD FROM FOREST TO BOILER

7 BIOMASS PRODUCTS WOOD CHIPS – WET - ABOVE 30% M.C. WOOD CHIPS – DRY – BELOW 25% M.C. WOODCHIPS DRIED BY – NATURAL DRYING ARTIFICIAL DRYING

8 CHIPPERS HEIZOHACK 400 SCREEN CHIPPER JUNKKARI 500 DRUM CHIPPER JENZ 561 CHIPPER

18 WOODCHIP OUTPUT MAXIMUM OUTPUT = 100 TONNES OF DRY CHIP PER DAY I.E. 400,000 kWhrs OF HEAT TYPICAL HOUSE WILL USE APPROX 100 kWhrs TYPICAL PRIMARY SCHOOL WILL USE APPROX 5000 kWhrs

23 BOILER INSTALLATIONS CHOICE BETWEEN – WOODCHIP OR WOOD PELLET DRY WOODCHIP – LESS THAN 25% MC GENERALLY LARGER INSTALLATIONS LARGER FUEL STORAGE FACILITIES LOWER FUEL COSTS THAN PELLETS AT PRESENT. AROUND 3.5p/kWhr LONG SHELF LIFE

24 WET WOODCHIP- ABOVE 30% M.C. VERY LARGE BOILERS & POWER STATIONS MORE DELIVERIES PER ANNUM MORE CONTAMINATION SHORT SHELF LIFE DUE TO COMPOSTING & MOULDING PRICE SIMILAR TO DRY WOODCHIP

25 WOOD PELLETS IDEAL FOR SMALLER BOILER INSTALLATIONS LESS BULKY MORE EXPENSIVE – AROUND 4.5p/kWhr CAN BREAK DOWN IF GET DAMP OR WET LIMITED SHELF LIFE

26 BOILERS INSTALLED – 10KW TO 600KW BINDER FROELING VETO CALIMAX JANFIRE SONNYS GILLIES – Under consideration

27 CHOOSING A BOILER WHAT SIZE DO I NEED AND WHEN DO I NEED HEAT? HOW SOPHISTICATED DO I NEED? FUEL STORAGE AND DELIVERY? BACK-UP SERVICE? GO AND LOOK AT INSTALLED EXAMPLES ASK QUESTIONS DOES IT COMPLY WITH THE LOCAL ENVIRONMENTAL CRITERIA?
