Optimizing processes

Industry, neighborhood communities and District Heating in Spain opt for biomass in search of economic savings and cost control. The latest data indicates that there are more than 14.000 equipment between 50 and 1.000 kW y more than 1.400 that exceed 1 MW thermal power.

More than a thousand computers are installed annually in Spain and boilers for industrial and commercial use capable of generating hot water, thermal oil and steam, as well as hot and cold air generators, dryers, ovens, air conditioners or industrial cold generators that can use biomass as fuel.

Many companies manage their own by-products and value them energetically in ceramics, cement, paper, wood, tobacco, coffee, dried fruit, all kinds of farms and other agricultural products, greenhouses and in the canning industry, among others.

MITECO publishes ORDER TED/707/2022, of July 21, with the first call for aid for heat network projects with renewable energies of more than 1 MW, endowed with 100 million euros. Current aid for heating networks with renewable energies The call opens on September 26 and ends on October 28, 2022. The actions subject to aid must be completed by October 31, 2025.
The new heat network with forest biomass for the buildings on the campus of the University of Valladolid in Palencia will serve the buildings on the "La Yutera" campus: ETS Engineering Agrarias, Vice-rectorate, Classrooms, Departments and the faculties of Education and Sciences of the Worked.
At the end of 2021, 497.556 pellet stoves and boilers were operating in Spain, 74.655 more than the previous year. Sales of equipment for domestic use, up to 50kW of power, have increased by 40,3%.
A food company in Madrid has begun to recover the single-use pallets it receives daily thanks to a chipper and a 100 kW boiler supplied by Heizomat Spain.
The Arán Valley (Lleida) uses the wood from the area's forests to feed the two new biomass boilers installed at the Vielha hospital. The project has generated a socioeconomic impact thanks to the generation of jobs and favoring the efficient management of forest resources, one of the pending challenges in the area.
The biomass plant, promoted by DH Ecoenergías and Ferrovial, will be operational in the spring of 2024 with the forecast that it will reach between 7.000 and 10.000 homes in the capital of Ávila.
ENSO will develop, build and manage the largest biomass cogeneration plant in Spain for the ACOR cooperative, owner of the largest sugar beet plant in Spain, and a member of AVEBIOM for several years.
This is the second Heat Network that REBI has built in Castilla-La Mancha after the Guadalajara district heating is already working and expanding its number of users. The Cuenca Heat Network will supply thermal energy from biomass to neighboring communities, public and industrial buildings in the city of Cuenca.
The municipality of El Tiemblo, from Ávila, has received the Honorable Mention in the thirteenth edition of the @EnerAgen awards in the category 'Best Performance in the Matter of Renewable Energies', for its centralized biomass boiler project for the supply of heating and water heat ten municipal buildings using the wood chips as fuel.
The Remourban project has won the ASPRIMA-SIMA award for "Best Urban Regeneration Initiative" in its 19th edition, awarded by the Madrid Real Estate Exhibition (SIMA) in collaboration with the Madrid Association of Real Estate Developers (ASPRIMA). It is a reference award in Spain, with ten categories, which recognizes the best projects in the sector in areas such as innovation, company training or sustainability
On April 28, LASIAN, a national manufacturer of biomass boilers since 1967, held a technical-commercial conference to present the new designs of its Industrial Range boilers:
As a result of the business evolution of Natural Fire, the range of hot air generators by biomass combustion (GNF) is born, focused on using solid biomass from productive waste (pellets, olive pits, almond shells, etc.), in the generation of hot air flows, to be used both in industrial processes and in heating.
