MESSERSMITH MANUFACTURING, INC. Design, Fabrication & Installation of State-of-the-Art Industrial Biomass Boiler Systems Gailyn and Valerie Messersmith Bark River, Michigan
A LITTLE ABOUT US… Located in Bark River, Michigan Incorporated in 1982 Over 100 systems installed - Alaska to Maine Typical application found in hospitals, schools, as well as wood and lumber processing Messersmith Manufacturing, Inc.2
ADVANTAGES OF BIOMASS FUELS Renewable and Sustainable Locally available Carbon Neutral Fewer Emissions Lower Cost 3Messersmith Manufacturing, Inc.
4 System Example
LOCAL MESSERSMITH SYSTEMS Wetterau Wood Products – Antigo, WI Canopy Gardens – Antigo, WI Reedsburg Hardwoods – Reedsburg, WI Goemans Wood Products – Hartford, WI Stetson Hardwoods – Stetsonville, WI Krueger Lumber – Valders, WI 5Messersmith Manufacturing, Inc.

QUESTIONS TO CONSIDER Fuel – What fuel is locally available? – What is the cost and how will it be transported? Site Location – What location is near the existing boiler room? – Has sufficient space for new equipment? – Has access to roads that can handle large trucks? 8Messersmith Manufacturing, Inc.
QUESTIONS TO CONSIDER Buildings – What type and size structure is needed to house the system? Personnel – Who will operate and maintain the system and what will it cost? Pre-feasibility – Can potential cost savings offset the total cost of the project? 9Messersmith Manufacturing, Inc.

KRUEGER LUMBER 11Messersmith Manufacturing, Inc. If Krueger Lumber used #2 Heating Oil for the Heating Season to produce same output as on wood chips… Would need: 61,892 gallons of #2 heating oil 61,892 gallons x $2.97/gal = $183,819 fuel cost
KRUEGER LUMBER 12Messersmith Manufacturing, Inc. If Krueger Lumber used Wood Chips for the Heating Season to produce same output as on heating oil… Value of wood chips burned was $31,000 $183,819 heating oil $31,000 wood chips $152,819 Net fuel cost savings!!
KRUEGER LUMBER 13Messersmith Manufacturing, Inc. Additional costs with Boiler System: Routine Maintenance – clean out ash - $4,500 Repairs - $4, After wood chips, maintenance and repairs still resulting in a cost savings of $143,844.36!
KRUEGER LUMBER According to Larry Krueger, Burning wood waste makes a lot of environmental sense. Burning fossil fuel takes carbon out of the ground and into the atmosphere. With wood, you take the ash from burning, bury it, and put carbon back into the earth. Plus, the fuel source, growing trees, remove carbon dioxide from the atmosphere. Its a win, win.
