The Official Association of Forestry Engineers has proposed to the Government, on the International Day of Forests, that a reduced VAT of 10% be applied, instead of the current 21%, to biomass of forest origin consumed by families for energy use . Such VAT reduction would mean a considerable saving estimated at 8% of the final cost of biomass.
Ecofricalia has developed this new Myopellet device
The AIMMP - Association of Wood and Furniture Industries of Portugal is the only business association of the sector in Portugal, representing all forest industries. He will be present in Valladolid from September 21 to 23 at Expobiomasa with his associates:
Located in the heart of the Tierra de Pinares region, Naturpellet's maxim is to manufacture pellets of the best quality and respectful of the environment.
GEBIO ENERGIA already manufactures its own pellets and thus manages to integrate its Energy Services Company process
Gebio Energía, an energy services company, has been producing its own certified pellets of the highest quality since last year and has implemented a new logistics system to serve its customers in Spain and Portugal.
Naparpellet is a leading company in pellet and chip innovation and quality that is "transforming the future". In fact, it is the only firm recommended by many manufacturers of boilers and stoves in Europe. The high quality pellets are produced with 100% pine sawdust, dried at low temperatures, and average manufacturing humidity of 6%, which enables us to ensure a PCI of 4,94-5,35kwh / kg.
CEPEVER ENERGÍA VERDE is a new project that is based on the knowledge of the sector during more than a decade of growth and helps clients to improve the management and purchase of pellets, offering a 360-degree service. The strength that this project defends is solidity and simple things.
Briquetas CarWood has carried out a study focused on the calculation of greenhouse gas emissions generated during heating in greenhouses using fossil fuels and densified biomass fuels. The study was carried out for a greenhouse with an area of 5.000 m2, estimating emissions for fossil fuels and biomass from British Government emission factors.
Oliva Corks - CARBOON is the first plant in Spain that produces charcoal in pyrolytic ovens and manages to transform firewood from pruning and felling into charcoal through pyrolysis, which chemically decomposes an organic element and transforms it into another. This is achieved at elevated temperatures in the absence of oxygen. The three key advantages of this process are:
The company, which manufactures 40.000 tons of pellets per year using forest residues from the area, plans to go on to 60.000 tons per year manufactured. For this reason they have undertaken different investments to improve the plant, the storage system and thus optimize production capacity and reduce costs. This bet has cost Pellets Asturias close to three million euros.
The price of heating oil has increased by 17% since last January. The price of diesel suffers significant drops and rises from time to time. Since the decline at the beginning of the pandemic, it has already recovered and risen by 57% in one year, and this rise is causing an increase in confidence in the installation of new biomass heating equipment.
The Ministry considers olive pit, dried fruit shells and other materials obtained mechanically from agri-food industries as biomass and not as waste
The Spanish Biomass Association (Avebiom), the organizing body of EXPOBIOMASA, has been trying to normalize and unify the use of olive pit for years.
