Chip Chip Wood Fuel

Strong Energy

Chip Chip Ltd was set up specifically to provide consistent, virgin high quality, dry and contaminant free wood fuel for biomass boilers in the UK.

Lack of knowledge regarding the effect that wet and / or contaminated fuel can have on a biomass boiler has meant consumers have been purchasing poor quality sub-standard fuel.

Increased wear and tear, increased maintenance costs and reduced boiler output performance has resulted from this type of inadequate fuel,ultimately leading to reduced boiler lifespan.

Chip Chip wood fuel is tested monthly at a UKAS Accreditation Centre for particulate size, fines content and moisture content. Additionally, daily checks are undertaken in-house via the company’s own Quality Assurance Scheme.

By chipping its own wood, Chip Chip ensures product consistency. Experience has proven that particulate size cannot be guaranteed by a third party chipper. The wood is chipped when wet to BS EN 14961, then dried to the moisture content as required.

Chip Size

The only input chip that meets a boiler’s specification as well as the specification set out in BS EN 14961, which is now the dimensions for all European standards.

Origin of Timber

Chip Chip Ltd uses untreated virgin timber to make its chip for burning in biomass boilers.

Chip Chip only uses the highest specification virgin timber for all its wood chip meaning it is all clean wood, no slab or waste wood. This is ideal for a boiler’s lifespan as well as giving a good quality burn.

All of the wood used by Chip Chip is traceable and sustainable.

Moisture Content

Specification by the BS EN 14961 requires a sub <25% moisture content.

To arrive at such a low moisture content virgin timber chip needs to be dried by a more robust process than simple air dry over time.

Chip Chip wood fuel has a moisture content of <22%.

Chip Fuel Supply Contracts

With a chip fuel supply contract you get:

  • A boiler condition survey.

  • A new service and maintenance agreement.

  • A boiler settings review and re-commission for 20% moisture content fuel.

  • Help in achieving the most efficient usage of heat to maximise RHI earnings, reduced fuel consumption and increased income per hour.

  • Help with RHI reporting.

  • Help with Ofgem documentation and preparation for Ofgem audits.

  • Order Fuel


    MaterialsChip Chip uses a spruce larch mix, both of these conifers are very high in calorific value giving over 5000 kWh per tonne when dried to a low moisture level.
