Waste Wood for Industry

Investment and Payback
Convert wasted wood into savings with a system from Oxford Renewables.The price for a 1MW system is between £500,000 to £1,000,000 depending on the specification and application. In all cases, the payback should occur within 3-4 years and 16-17 years of profit and total return on investment of over £8,000,000.


Oxford Renewables provide low risk, high reward waste wood fuelled drying systems that use Ariterm, the UK’s most popular biomass boiler for waste wood.

Ideal for recycling centres, waste transfer stations and skip hire companies, the system gives a productive application to waste wood that would otherwise be costly to pass and export to other waste wood outlets.

Waste Wood Systems from Oxford Renewables


We convert the waste wood into fuel for boilers to produce hot air which is blown underneath a drying floor. This means that heat is generated to clean and dry other waste materials.

Drier waste is easier to handle and therefore it is easier to recover valuable materials during the segregation process. As the waste is lighter, it is also more easily manipulated, incurring fewer haulage and transport costs. More recovered value means less waste is sent to landfill, further reducing costs.

The system is a fantastic way for businesses to generate revenue and lower the operational costs associated with Grade A, B and C waste wood.


The Oxford Renewables team are experts in implementing systems that use waste wood as fuel, creating hot blown air for drying as part of the waste cleansing process. We have extensive experience managing waste to energy plants and are currently running two 1MW waste wood to energy plants in the Reading area.

We offer 100% financing for the system as provided by our selected finance partners. The Partnership Model sees Oxford Renewables fund and own the system, renting the land from you to locate the system, in exchange for the supply of waste wood fuel. Businesses have the option to buy the system from Oxford Renewables at a later date.
