About this book

This is a comprehensive handbook covering all aspects of wood pellet heating technology. The use of wood pellets as an alternative heating fuel is already well established in several countries and is becoming widespread as fossil fuel prices continue to rise and awareness of climate change grows. Wood pellets are a carbon-neutral technology, convenient to use, and can easily be integrated into existing central heating systems or used in independent space heaters. This fully illustrated and easy-to-follow guide shows how wood pellet heating works, the different types of systems - from small living room stoves systems to larger central heating systems for institutions - how they are installed, and even how wood pellets are manufactured. It includes numerous examples from around the world.

Media reviews
'Earthscan bill these volumes as expert handbooks and they do not disappoint. They will save you from making costly mistakes and are well worth the cover price.' Permaculture Magazine 'This series is pitched at just the right level for specialists - detailed, well illustrated, full of information yet readable. You can buy similar books cheaper but you won't get the level of detail or the clarity of explanation and illustrations.' Permaculture Magazine 'Clear, concise, comprehensive.' Green Energy Magazine 'Detailed and easy to understand.' Bioenergy International 'Starting with an overview of the physics of heat and backed by an array of real life case studies, 'Wood Pellet Heating Systems' offers well grounded advice for anyone embarking on the planning, sizing, design or installation of a wide variety of wood fuel systems. The book is well illustrated, jargon free and clearly written, offering a valuable contribution to unlocking the potential of wood fuel in a wide range of applications.'
