The most affordable solution available

Biomass Engineering & Equipment (BE&E) has created robust and cost-effective biomass storage/feeding bins from repurposed sea containers to complete your quality material handling system.

The solution can be easily expanded and changed to fit current or future needs. The unique push/pull wedge floor system allows materials to be moved evenly and consistently. Our SMART Container Bins provide a fast, flexible, convenient and affordable solution with a reliable and consistent feed.

  • Installs quickly – often in a day or weekend
  • Units can be stationary or mobile
  • Units can be placed side by side to offer redundancy or the blending of various materials
  • Units can be stacked vertically (up to 3 high) for increased capacity 
  • SMART Floor system operates more efficiently and more reliably than a silo-based solution
  • Green solution - repurposed sea containers make excellent material storage bins
  • Can be made dust tight
  • May not require building permits to operate
  • Can be easily moved and re-configured

Mobile Option (on Chassis)

  • Ready to operate upon delivery
  • SMART Floor provides accurate discharge rates
  • Quick couple to HPU or run from truck PTO
  • When unit #1 is empty, unit #2 activates and begins unloading while unit #1 leaves to be refilled
  • Expandable – easily add more receiving stations
  • Units serve as your storage, transport and feeding device
