Technology, design, price and comfort These are the characteristics that most value European customers of domestic equipment with power less than 50kW. The main trend in manufacturing firms is the adaptation of models to Ecodesign.

In Europe they operate close to one million boilers for domestic use and around 82.000 units are sold annually. Germany, with more than 265.000 biomass boilers running, and Italy, with 115.000 boilers, lead the sales ranking with 15.000 units. Austria, with 125.000 boilers, the country with the best ratio per inhabitant by having a boiler for every Austrian 70. Y Spain had 2018 with 18.000 pellet boilers for domestic use, year in which 2.400 units were sold, an 7,1% more than the previous one.

The latest available European data indicates that there are more than 4,6 millions of pellet stoves running and that annual sales exceed 570.000 units. It highlights the positive evolution of sales in the Mediterranean countries. Italy has 2,6 millions of stoves running and leads the sales ranking with 180.000 units. It is followed by France, which at the end of 2017 had 740.000 pellet stoves working, and its sales grew by 35%, up to 144.000 units. Spain had 2017 with 220.000 operating pellet stoves, one for every Spanish 1.145. One year later, the estimated number of operating stoves in Spain was almost 270.000, and sales had increased by 19%.

AVEBIOM organizes on February 23 the free webinar “Emissions from biomass. Are they accounting well? " to show that the methodology used to estimate emissions must clearly distinguish obsolete and inefficient equipment from technified biomass systems, which fully comply with the Ecodesign regulations.
Open Fireplaces: Why They Should Be Avoided Open fireplaces are open-flame, glass-free fireplaces that still exist in many homes, both traditional and newer. The open fireplace should be considered an object of decoration or to cook sporadically on the embers. But it should not be considered as a heating solution, due to its poor performance and high particulate emissions.
The Jolly Mec stove uses EVO technology to meet environmental emission limits. It is a combined stove that works with both wood and pellets, for forced air heating, with the particularity of having two combustion chambers but only one smoke outlet and a unique design that enhances the flame of the chosen fuel.
SOLZAIMA begins production this month in its new factory. This investment is the result of the growth that the firm has had over the more than 39 years dedicated to the manufacture of equipment and biomass heating systems
The increase in the installation of new biomass stoves and boilers for residential use, with powers up to 50kW, has registered an increase in business volume of 2019% in 17,3 compared to the previous year, up to 356 million euros, according to has informed the director of Expobiomasa, Jorge Herrero, in reference to the Annual Report of the Biomass Observatory that is being prepared by the Spanish Association of Biomass -AVEBIOM-.
The cold comes and we are at home longer, so it is important to keep the rooms warm, better than gas or oil boilers are pellet stoves and fireplaces, both for the first and second homes. Much more comfortable, attractive and simple to install are pellet equipment. 
Cost reduction in the installation of the Vap range of pellet boilers. The implemented ECOFOREST control strategies ensure the direct impulse and the programmed temperature against any emission system (radiators, fan coils, underfloor heating), guaranteeing a return temperature 10 ºC lower than the impulsion temperature, without the need to install inertia and anti-condensation valves and regardless of the number of radiators.
Despite the ongoing pandemic, Germany produced more than 1,5 million tons of wood pellets in the first half of 2020, representing an increase of 13%, 173.000 tons than the first half of 2019. With in order to meet the increase in domestic demand driven by new pellet boiler installations.
Heizomat partners with Siemens to equip its boilers with a new touch system to be able to regulate its wood boilers with it. This new system allows new possibilities for the management and control of different boiler setting parameters, while guaranteeing high reliability. More info:
Most of the biomass boiler manufacturers in Europe have worked early enough to bring a catalog of high-quality equipment on the market that meets eco-design requirements.
In Catalonia, the use of pellets and other biofuels has increased significantly. This has made it possible to valorise products extracted from forest cleaning.
