Biomass Diarist

Peter Turner Biomass DiaristPeter Turner, Chairman at The Coventry Wood Pellet Co Ltd- Trading as Grofuel. I have been in the renewables industry since 2005 first selling wind turbines and then adding heat pumps, solar PV and solar hot water systems. In 2012 i moved to Spain where i was working with Orihuela University on Future Fuels, we grew 500 hectares of Arundo Donax, Hemp and Miscanthus Giganteus to see which grew best, had the best Calorific value and was easiest to harvest and process. These tests showed that Hemp was by far the best product as it added nutrients to the soil, needed not pesticides or fertilizers, was easy to harvest and the volume per hectare per annum was the highest yield. I am now back in the UK and have set up in Coventry, we are importing a range of wood pellet burners and boilers of the highest quality i have found from Italy with superb prices. We will be launching our new website in the next few weeks and will be offering excellent Trade Prices along with free training on the software to optimise performance of all our products. We will also be offering Din+/A1 wood pellets at very good discounts to the trade and the public.
