Biomass Rather Than Fossil Fuel

There are pros and cons to wood-burning stoves and fireplace inserts, but one of the most promising recent home-heating developments is the biomass stove -- a combustion device much like a pellet stove. Biomass stoves burn organic fuels: cherry pits, olive pits, sunflower seeds, corn, wheat and other cereal grains. The seeds and grains go into the hopper and out comes a slow, steady stream of fuel to the combustion chamber. These fuel sources burn cleanly and contain a huge amount of hearth and heart-warming. For more, try for biomass and wood stoves, for biomass stoves, or for soapstone masonry fireplaces. /m
