Finnish Energy Consulting company Benet Ltd. presents a tabel  (see photo) about how fuel quality and price of boilerinvestment correlates. This table is often truthful.

With Urbas system you don't pay any extra of the opportunity to use cheap and even bad quality "multifuels"!
Urbas has developed unique fuelfeeding that tolerates low quality and big size wood based on biofuel with stones, metal, woodpieces and pieces of sawlogs mixed. Even bigger ice clods (photo) and snow do not cause any harm for Urbas fuelfeeding. (see photo)

Urbas has developed a furnace which is able to use  all kind of fuels from sawmillindustry.
Inside sawmillindustry it's demand is to get quickly heat for peak loads caused by new kilnloads. Often boiler has to double its effect on very short time, otherwise the lack of heat causes damages on kiln quality of sawntimber. Fast boiler gives benefits even to districtheating solutions.
