Woodchip

At Forth Resource Management (FRM) we use sustainably sourced roundwood from our local area. This is key not only to help support the local economy but also to ensure the carbon cost incurred in the haulage of both the roundwood and the woodchip is kept to a minimum. FRM woodchip has been air dried for up to 12 months and then further dried on a drying floor so the moisture levels are < 30% , this ensures excellent boiler efficiency.

The most common sizes required are usually G30 and G50. On a regular basis we undertake a 'batch' chipping operation with large, specialist wood fuel chippers to process material to the specification required. The wood fuel is stored in large covered barns, free of any source of contamination before being placed into the drying floor. The drying floor uses hot air which is blown under the specially designed floor to dry the chip to a constant, below 30%, moisture content thus ensuring a product with high calorific value.

FRM are able to provide quality seasoned firewood logs that are suitable for burning in an open fire or wood burning stove. The logs have been stored in covered, well ventilated sheds to maximize the natural drying process.
