Eco-Friendly

Straw, which is a natural product, is clean and cheap and may become an alternative to expensive coal. It is easy to calculate the costs of using straw as a fuel. The cost of obtaining the same quantity of energy, is, in the case of straw-firing roughly 35% lower than in the case of coal-firing. In Ireland, all our coal is imported and hugh distances must be travelled to obtain this fossil fuel. All this comes at great cost to our environment and our national “carbon-footprint”.
