Model MBB-100 :: EPA Phase 2 Qualified
The Bio-Burner is a multi-day wood pellet boiler. It is a hydronic, non-pressurized boiler that can be attached to any existing heating system (hydronic or forced air.) The Bio-Burner is also non-catalytic – the burn takes place in a single burn chamber. The MBB-100 is rated as an indoor/outdoor biomass burner and gas burner (natural or propane.) The clean emissions have met the standards for both the EPA Phase II and CSA B365 ratings (EPA qualified using wood pellets).
The MBB-100 is the 100k BTU Bio-Burner intended for residential or light commercial use. It will produce 100K BTU’s and because of its sophisticated computer controls, it has a “turn off” feature – making it almost smoke free – instead of the “turn down” feature of most other burners which causes smoking.
The MBB-100 is compatible with all Bio-Burner Fuel Feed Systems: the 2yd standard bin, 11 yard bulk or the 22 yard bulk bin. All fuel bin systems include all motors, augers & computer controls. Each bulk bin design is optionally capable of feeding up to 4 of The Bio-Burner units at once. The bulk bin systems come with plans for constructing the 11 or 22 yd wooden bin (wooden parts not included.) Optional pre-construction & partial assembly of wooden parts is available.

Either propane or natural gas is used to ignite the fuel on start-up or if the burner has been off for a long period of time, it will automatically ignite when heat is demanded. This same gas source is used to provide fuel if there is a need for the full gas back-up system. If the owner is away from home for a length of time or if one runs out of biomass fuel, the MBB-100 can be used as a gas system (fully rated in safety and emissions for 100k BTU’s.)
The MBB-100 functions the same as The Bio-Burner model BB-100. There are a few key differences:
- The MBB-100 has been tested for efficiency & clean emissions by the EPA.
- The MBB-100 is EPA Phase 2 qualified as a wood pellet boiler.
- The BB-100 has not been tested.
- Due to the BB-100′s ability to burn a multitude of biomass fuels, it would be infeasible to run every one of the fuel possibilities in the test lab.
For those in need of an EPA Phase 2 qualified wood pellet boiler, the MBB-100 meets all necessary requirements.
