Burlyburn is a green, renewable and completely natural alternative fuels made from miscanthus (Elephant Grass) by-products, extracted during the manufacture of animal bedding.

What is miscanthus?

Miscanthus (or elephant grass as it is sometimes known) is a biomass crop that originated in South East Asia. Miscanthus was initially introduced into Europe as an ornamental garden plant but over recent years has become one of the most important crop used for biomass production.

Although we sell miscanthus here as an energy crop, primarily, miscanthus is grown for animal bedding as it is very absorbent (being able to absorb up to three times its own weight in moisture) and its woody nature means the dust content is low, avoiding respiratory problems.
During the processing of this animal bedding, a by-product is created and it is this by-product that is compacted here in the UK and turned into the biomass eco-fuel: Burlyburn.

Miscanthus is defined as being carbon neutral. The carbon dioxide emitted when burnt can be balanced out by the amount of carbon dioxide absorbed from the atmosphere while the plant grows on home soil here in the UK. There are no fertilisers or pesticides used on the miscanthus crop once it is established.
These green factors are what make the miscanthus crop so different to other conventional crops as the energy efficient eco-friendly crop is far more friendly to the environment.
