Fueling the Future: Biomass District Heating in Canada

Fueling the Future: Biomass District Heating in Canada

District heating (DH) systems have been long-established in Canada, particularly in large urban settings and on university and college campuses. These systems efficiently heat multiple buildings by utilizing centralized heat generation and distribution networks. In recent years, biomass has emerged as a prominent fuel source for DH systems, offering a sustainable and cost-effective alternative to traditional fossil fuels, especially in smaller, more localized applications.

One of the pioneering biomass-fueled DH systems in Canada is the District Energy system in Charlottetown, owned by Enwave, which has been operational for over three decades. This system serves 145 customers and is fueled by 26,000 tonnes of municipal solid waste and 36,000 tonnes of repurposed biomass annually. It has achieved a remarkable 90% reduction in municipal landfilling volume and has displaced 6.5 million gallons of fuel oil, significantly reducing greenhouse gas emissions. Additionally, for every dollar spent on biomass fuels, 70 cents circulate within the local economy, demonstrating the economic benefits of biomass district heating. Continue Reading HERE

Fink Machine to Distribute Directly

Press Release – March 19, 2024

Fink Machine Inc., Canada’s largest supplier of commercial biomass boilers is excited to announce that we have simplified our supply chain in an effort to reduce cost for our clients. Fink Machine will now be sourcing biomass boilers directly from European Manufacturer Mawera Holzfeuerungsanlagen GmbH. The Vitoflex 300 RF and Vitoflex 300 UF boilers previously distributed by Viessmann Canada will now return to their original model names of Pyrot (RF) and Pyrotec (UF). The boilers will continue to be both ASME and CSA certified for all variants. Fink Machine would like to thank Viessmann Canada for all their support over the past 16 years. We look forward to an exciting future dealing directly with Mawera.


Fink Machine has been distributing Biomass boilers sine the early 2002’s. Originally Fink supplied KOB boilers manufactured in Austria. In 2007, KOB was purchased by Viessmann, a large diversified German boiler manufacturer. Viessmann Canada continued to supply the popular Pyrot and Pyrotec boilers to Fink Machine. As part of a move to standardize names Viessmann rebranded the Pyrot and Pyrotec to the Vitoflex 300-RF and Vitoflex 300-UF respectively. In 2020 Mawera took over the biomass division of Viessmann, while the biomass boilers continued to be distributed in North America by Viessmann Canada.

Fink Machine District Heating System Energy Centre

Fink Machine has owned and operated a district heating system since 2012. We have 11 clients connected and are looking to add more in 2020. We have over 1.6 km of trenches. Heat for the system is generated by a 540 kW Viessmann Vitoflex 300-RF wood chip boiler. Since it has come on line we have toured thousands of people through the energy centre. We have recorded a video so those that are not able to come to Enderby can see it. The video is available here. If you have any questions please do not hesitate to contact us.

They know their stuff, they’ve proved it where they’ve put in these machines and some of them are just amazing. The greatest thing about Fink was the relationship. If you have a good relationship you can do anything.
