Biomass, what is it?

The term biomass, generally refers of a set of animal or vegetable organisms present in a certain amount in an environment such as the aquatic or terrestrial. (...) Biomass is particularly important in two different fields such as ecological and renewable energies, which is a source of energy of biotic origin. [From Wikipedia]

Wood pellets and wood are considerered "biomass", i.e. organic matter, and in this sense all pellet boilers and stoves on the market burn "biomass". CS THERMOS products are different because they allow actual biomass, i.e. the waste from agricultural processing which is its "natural waste", to be burnt, together with all types of wood pellets.

High Quality Pellet

It's produced by the tree trunk and with the use of dedicated systems it is pressed by using of the lignin as a bonding agent. The pressing increases the calorific value than natural wood.

Standard quality Pellet

Usually it's produced by scraps of agriculture and woodworking. Turns out to have a good calorific value and a ash percentage of higher and / or compact compared to the pellets of excellent quality.

Wood chips

It's the wood reduced in flakes from trunks and branches using the chipper. It's primarily used in industrial plants. Now, thanks to Cippatina, it can also use in a house.
