Outdoor Wood Boilers may negatively affect your community's environment and health.
The American Lung Association of the Upper Midwest (ALAUM) has partnered with the Hoosier Environmental Council (HEC) to replace Outdoor Wood Boilers (OWBs) in Indiana with renewable, virtually maintenance-free solar, geothermal and combination systems. In addition to the low maintenance demands, the applicable systems offer low operating costs, high returns on investment and particulate matter pollution reduction benefits. ALAUM is authorized to cover up to 100% of the eligible costs associated with these replacement projects.
"Although biomass is a renewable resource, much of it is currently used in ways that are neither renewable nor sustainable."
