We are pleased to announce two Ignite training courses to be held at the Sylva Wood Centre this autumn.

Ignite is an innovative training programme of practical seminars and interactive workshops with a focus on woodfuel.  Ignite is designed for those wanting to know more about woodfuel and to equip new and existing woodfuel businesses with the skills and knowledge required to meet the increasing demand for high quality products from this growing alternative market. Compliance with the sustainability requirements for fuel supplied to systems receiving RHI payments are a key feature of all our Ignite courses.

Ignite Firewood Production and Supply is aimed at both existing and fledgling firewood businesses. The course covers firewood as a renewable fuel, sources of timber for firewood, equipment to handle, produce and deliver firewood, units and conversion factors, markets and economics of the supply chain including calculating sales prices from wet and dry weight to loose and stacked volumes. A Lantra Awards certificate of attendance is issued on completion of the course.

Ignite Managing Woods for Woodfuel focuses on planting, managing and harvesting woodlands for use as woodfuel. What timber is suited to what type of woodfuel (logs or chips), assessing woodlands, measuring timber, harvesting, extraction, conversion and the economic modelling of timber harvesting and woodfuel conversion are covered in this one day course. A Lantra Awards certificate of attendance is issued on completion of the course.
