The 13th edition of EXPOBIOMASA will promote the activity of a sector that has not stopped growing in recent years, presenting the largest range of technological and commercial novelties at the Valladolid Fair from September 21 to 23 and from September 26 to 30. online for professionals who cannot attend.
Both AVEBIOM and Feria de Valladolid have worked to offer visitors and exhibitors a safe space where they can re-establish professional relationships with total confidence and continue to grow the sector.
EXPOBIOMASA 2021 will have 327 exhibiting firms from 15 countries that, in a space of 21.000 square meters, will show their latest technology and novelties and the best offers both in the domestic and industrial fields.
Together with the leading companies in the market that are repeating for another year, the fair welcomes 76 new exhibitors in this edition, which guarantees new business opportunities for the professionals who attend. A week after opening its doors, 5.000 professional visitors have already been accredited at EXPOBIOMASA.
With the celebration of the fair on the scheduled dates, the organizers hope to boost commercial activity to unprecedented figures in a sector that has maintained its growth for 15 years. In its latest editions, Expobiomasa facilitated an increase in the business generated close to 16 million euros.
An increasingly visible and accepted sector
The sector is experiencing a "sweet moment" with the progress of numerous projects and the allocation of incentives that help make them a reality. But, above all, it is obtaining the support of society, which increasingly understands the environmental and economic benefits that the energy recovery of biomass brings: prevention of forest fires and invigoration of emptied Spain, in addition to its lower cost for heating compared to fossil fuels like diesel and natural gas or electricity.
It is a sector that already moves more than 3.000 million euros as a whole in Spain and that hopes to continue being essential as a renewable energy to support the country's energy mix.
36 exhibitors at the XNUMXst Renewable Gas Show
The first Renewable Gas Show, which is held in parallel to EXPOBIOMASA in collaboration with the Spanish Biogas Association, will feature 36 exhibitors and a wide program of conferences and conferences, some of them within the program of the 14th International Bioenergy Congress -CIB21 -, dedicated to presenting the best solutions with biomass and renewable gas in the face of the change in the energy model and the urgent challenges of bioenergy in Latin America
On June 30, the Royal Decree was published approving the direct concession to the autonomous communities of an incentive program linked to the implementation of renewable thermal systems in the residential sector, within the framework of the Recovery, Transformation and Resilience Direct aid is included for the installation of biomass stoves that meet ECODESIGN and use certified fuels as pellet ENplus A1, among other renewable systems. The coordination and monitoring of this incentive program will be carried out by the Institute for Diversity and Energy Saving -Representative-, an entity dependent on the Ministry for the Ecological Transition and the Demographic Challenge.
It is expected to allocate a budget of 200 million from this specific program for the realization of thermal renewable energy installations in the residential sector, but it will initially be endowed with 100 million euros. It is key that professionals in the sector take advantage of these incentives quickly, and do not miss the unique opportunity to discover the news of the world's leading manufacturers of pellet stoves and boilers at the appointment of the year and go to EXPOBIOMASA, held from September 21 to 23 in Valladolid.
In Spain, energy consumption for thermal uses in 2019 accounted for around 33% of total final energy consumption, where the contribution of renewable energies is 19%, practically all of it being biomass. The improvement of these data to meet the objectives and commitments at the European level, as proposed by the Spanish Association of Biomass -AVEBIOM- in the value proposals to qualify for European funds Next Generation, goes univocally to promote the consumption of biomass of local and sustainable origin as a source of renewable energy through modern pellet stoves in our country.
Additionally, and in the short term, the impulse of the installation of pellet stoves will rapidly reduce the energy costs of consumers in the domestic sector, contributing significantly to the fight against energy poverty and to the improvement of the economy of citizens. Heating with pellets, for example, involves 50% savings compared to gas or diesel and much more when compared to the cost of heating with electricity.
The budget processing of this incentive program will be through the different regional administrations, adjusting as much as possible to each reality and with maximum limits of 3.000 euros per pellet stove per dwelling. These limits raise an additional € 700 per biomass stove for publicly owned homes. Incentives are also provided for the withdrawal of obsolete and old equipment. As published by the RD, the aid will be 350 euros per kW of installed power.
The Government of Spain promotes these incentives because it understands that the development of these programs will favor the generation of employment throughout the territory, with a marked component of proximity and a high degree of capillarity, and an improvement in economic activity, in a context of recovery after the pandemic, induced by the different help lines. It is worth highlighting the benefit derived from the reduction of fossil fuel imports and the improvement of the competitiveness of companies. In addition to the aforementioned benefits, other positive social effects of these programs can be highlighted, such as support for the third sector, the development of municipalities with fewer than 5.000 inhabitants, or increased awareness and awareness of end consumers, thanks to the requirements introduced in terms of consumption monitoring.
Located in the heart of the region Tierra de PinaresNaturpellet's maxim is to manufacture pellets of the best quality and respectful of the environment.
Using the surrounding pine trees as raw material, it undergoes a debarking and sawing process in its own facilities to ensure the purity of the manufactured material. The drying of this material is done by means of a biomass trommel, fed by the bark and branches of the pine trees, completing a cycle of circular economy and thus increasing the concept of sustainability of the plant, not only in the product but also in the process. productive.
As a final culmination, Naturpellet has always wanted to show off the natural part that accompanies its name, so that pack your pellets in a 100% recycled paper bag, with the multiple advantages that this implies for the product: sustainability, resistance, ease of storage and transport and breathability. The pellet is optimally preserved without damaging the environment that surrounds it.
