Woodlands Dairy Launches Biofuel Boiler
Humansdorp, South Africa – 5 September, 2016 – Woodlands Dairy, the producers of First Choice dairy products in the Eastern Cape, launched a Biofuel Boiler today.
The boiler’s primary fuel is biomass in the form of sustainable wood chips proposed and provided by MTO Forestry (Pty) Ltd. The partnership with Woodlands Dairy allowed the installation of the Green Bio-Mass fuelled boiler system that will use the wood chip biomass from their sustainable Longmore sawmill as fuel. A long term contract has been signed to supply a minimum of 35 000 tons of biomass per year.
TF Design (Pty) Ltd, designed and delivered a steam boiler system that will supply the majority of Woodlands Dairy’s steam needs. This will not only substantially reduce electricity usage but will also reduce the use of HFO (oil) and carbon emission. Large quantities of steam are used in dairy processing to pasteurise and sterilise milk.
