Biomass Heating Solutions was established in 2006. Its founder Jack O’Connor was assisted by research from the biomass experts at the University of Limerick, and the company installed 3 pilot sites in Ireland and confirmed plans and major investment for a further 5 sites in the UK at the time of investment. This company’s technology, which combusted farm waste into heat, also had significant potential to generate electricity.
