Biomass as a solid biofuel for space heating and domestic hot water is a viable environmental and economic option.  Emissions field-testing has been carried out for heating a small greenhouse at Forman Farms. Scientists from the University of Guelph have been monitoring combustion emissions and thermal performance for various shape and size of solid biofuels.
