Advantages and disadvantages of biofuel

The advantages and disadvantages of biofuel:


– Biofuels reduce greenhouse gas emissions

– Biofuels are a lot less expensive than gas

– Biofuels are easily produced by trees, woodland, waste, manure etc.

–¬†Biofuels can be produced locally, which decreases the nation’s dependence on foreign energy

– When biofuels are burned, they produce significantly less carbon output and fewer toxins, making them a safer alternative to preserve atmospheric quality and lower air pollution.


– To refine biofuels to more efficient energy outputs, and to build the necessary manufacturing plants to increase biofuel quantities, a high initial investment is often required.

RHI Biomass Boilers

Under the Renewable Heat Incentive (RHI) you can get paid for generating heat from a biomass boiler.

Here are a few reasons to switch to BIOMASS:

  • Cut your fuel bills,
  • Save money by not having to pay for Gas, Petrol, Electric etc.
  • Make money through the RHI
  • Help the environment

It’s like a second income coming in for doing nothing!

Why go biomass?

You can get paid thousands of pounds a year for generating heat through biomass. Tariff levels have been set at 12.2p/kWH for biomass boilers.

You’re also saving the environment, helping local businesses and cutting your fuel bills. The question should be – Why would you NOT go biomass?
