WHAT IS BIOMASS?
BIOFUELS OBTAINED FROM ORGANIC MATTER FOR PRODUCING THERMAL ENERGY
Among the various kinds of renewable energies, the production of thermal energy with biofuels obtained from organic matter is especially noteworthy. These products, commonly known as biomasses, are composed of a wide range of materials and have different characteristics and origins. Among them we find the residues of forest uses and agricultural crops, gardening prunings, residues of the wood industry, residues of agricultural products and even animal residues, and they can all be considered biomass.
Forest biomass of our islands is a real alternative to fossil fuels, which are increasingly scarce and expensive, as well as being one of the most controllable and programmable renewable energies.
TYPES OF BIOFUEL
Small cilinders of compressed solid wood with no additional additives. Their main advantage when compared to other formats such as woodchips is their energetic density, making them the ideal biofuel for domestic use, where storage space is limited.Buy
Smouldering firewood of strong thick species, such as oak or olive trees, with a high calorific value, ideal for household chimneys and heaters.Buy
Chipped wooden biomass obtained from sustainable forest management; it's high quality is due to the characteristics of its size and reduced humidity. It's recommended for boiler plants with medium or high consumptions due to its low energetic density.Buy
Almond husks are a local biofuel with high calorific value and a reduced price, for all types of consumptions, depending on the conditioning of its size and the impurities contained.buy
Biomass turned into solid biofuel must be stored in the energy consumption point, meaning one must reserve enough space to count with the right amount of autonomy.
For high and medium consumptions they will be construction or prefabricated silos, along with a power supply straight to the boiler that is right for the type of biofuel to be consumed.
In the case of domestic consumption, the facilities, be they heaters or boilers, will incorporate a manual loading hopper. In this case, the biofuel storage formats tend to be performed in 15kg sacks or sealed airless containers with dosing.
Biofuels are usually distributed with trucks, be they pressurized tanks or container boxes, to fill the silos in bulk; or with trucks with cranes to deliver the big bag sacks formats or 15kg sack pallets.
Our experience has taught us that a good design of the biofuel storage space and how easy it is to unload are as important at the right dimensioning of the equipment; they are the two fundamental pillars for achieving a successful installation.
ENERGY WITH BIOMASS SALE FOR BUSINESSES AND ESCOS
We offer the biomass purchase management service for its installation or various installations.
We select the best suppliers and plan the annual supply to guarantee the stock and the quality of the biofuel throughout the whole season. We elaborate consumption reports and calculate the avoided CO2 emissions.
