For over 46 years, English Boiler has constructed complete renewable energy systems using biomass as a fuel source. It is English Boiler’s philosophy that in order for the United States to reduce its dependency on foreign oil, it must take advantage of its many renewable, natural and manmade resources. These resources include Biomass and waste streams from factories, homes, universities and state and federal government that were once routed to landfills, but now can provide the fuel to create the energy to produce combined heat and power for our country.

Natural gas and fuel oil normally used to create the energy for heat and power can be replaced by combusting these renewable fuel sources. These sources include lumber waste, agricultural waste, and factory by products and refuse. Biomass and waste fuel streams can be combusted efficiently, and comply with strick environmental and emission regulations.

To better control quality, cost of fabrication, and assembly, English Boiler designs and manufactures the components required for these systems using a modular concept for almost every part of the system. Modular Biomass Systems provide a lower capital cost option compared to custom designed field erected systems.
