Conference helps businesses branch out

woodfuelhub4Businesses with a burning desire to learn more about wood fuel should look no further than the Wood Fuel Conference on Friday 4 October 2013 at Wotton House in Dorking.

Designed for estate owners, land agents, owners of commercial property as well as people working in the wood and timber industries, the conference addresses crucial industry issues:

Sustainability of wood fuelThe Grown in Britain initiativeThe benefits and challenges of a local supply chainThe arguments for and against using wood for fuel

The conference is also an opportunity for delegates to meet industry stakeholders at Wotton House which is the ancestral home of John Evelyn, the industrialist, forester and author of Sylva, the first discourse on forest trees published in 1664.

Carrie White, Business Development Manager of Surrey Hills Enterprises which is organising the conference says: “Enterprising local businesses are increasingly installing modern woodfuelled systems, while renewable wood fuel is proving to be a growing revenue for estate owners and operators in the wood and timber industries.  This conference provides information on how to develop wood fuel as a business and allow forward-thinking, environmentally responsible business owners with more information on how to use this well-established technology.”
