Biomass Suppliers List (BSL) Purpose of BSL is to demonstrate compliance with new sustainability criteria. There are 4 registration categories: Self-Supplier Producer Trader Producer and Trader To claim Domestic & Non-Domestic RHI, all participants must either register as self-suppliers or source their fuel from a BSL-registered Producer, Trader or Trader - Producer
Self - Supplier RHI participants with a boiler of less than 1MWth, sourcing fuel from own (single) estate (radius of 50 miles) as the boiler Also able to source waste woodfuel from outside their estate for use in their boiler If self-supplying, to claim RHI you will need evidence of sustainable self-supply: An FCS-approved woodland management plan or A felling licence
Self –supplying and producing fuel for sale If you want to self-supply chips or logs for your biomass boiler, as well as produce chips or logs for sale, you will need to register with the BSL and do a carbon calculation By spring 2015 you’ll also need to show compliance with the UK Timber Standard for Heat and Electricity. If your woodlands are not FSC/PEFC certified, then a woodland management plan will likely be key to complying with the Timber Standard
Producer RHI participants with a boiler of less than 1MWth, sourcing fuel from own (single) estate (radius of 50 miles) as the boiler Produces fuel from raw materials (not authorised to sell to end consumers) Trader Buys fuel and supplies it to consumers and/or other Traders
Trader – Producer Combines the roles of Producer and Trader RHI participants who source raw materials from another supplier (i.e. not using own woodlands) & process these into fuel for their own use should register in this category if they wish to use the BSL to meet the sustainability criteria Self-supply as well as selling chips or logs to other biomass boiler owners
You can claim RHI payments for drying chips or logs with a grain drying floor and then use those chips or logs to heat a property (if using the same boiler(s) You could potentially keep some of those chips for own use, as well as selling to end users or to traders (depending on BSL registration) RHI payments for drying chips or logs
