Biomass Fuel to Meet Your Specifications


In 2016, we started O J Neil Biomass with the sole intention of supplying straw to two fully operational straw fired biomass power stations in East Anglia. With a unique straw procurement strategy, we have quickly established ourselves as one of the leading providers of biomass fuel in the south east.

As well as straw, we are also able to supply virgin wood to meet the specific requirements of our customers. This is used to produce dried woodchip, which can be chipped on site. With our own haulage services, we can distribute a reliable supply of quality biomass fuel across the UK and meet the growing demand for sustainable fuel sources.

Why Use Biomass?

Biomass is a renewable source of energy that cannot be depleted. As long as there are plants on the planet, then biomass will be available as an energy source. Biomass is critically important given the challenges we face today. 

Biomass fuel helps to reduce the carbon emissions and greenhouse gases that are driving global warming and climate change. Solid biomass fuel can also produce electricity more reliably than intermittent renewable energy sources such as wind and solar because it can be stored and used when needed. 

The benefits of biomass as a renewable energy source include:

  • It will always be widely available as a renewable energy source
  • It’s carbon neutral
  • It reduces our reliance on fossil fuels
  • It’s a lot cheaper than fossil fuels
  • It’s a revenue source for farmers
  • Burning solid waste means less waste ends up in landfill

Choose O J Neil Biomass

As a company that supplies biomass fuel, we take our commitment to the environment, our people and the wider community very seriously. We work closely with local farmers and can take care of the straw harvesting, baling and chasing process on their behalf. We also offer an organics trading service, with excellent discounts on our biosolid products and spreading service in return for their straw & energy crops. 

This flexibility, alongside our experience of the countryside, our dedicated full-time workforce and our fleet of agricultural vehicles, means we are well placed to meet the demands of our customers.
