Make the most of the mountain biomass

La technification of forestry work is key to be efficient in the biomass energy sector, a relatively new sector that grows steadily. The demand for wood in Europe will grow in the next decades by 40%, and Spain has a long way to go.

The consumption of biomass to generate heat in an automated way has been multiplied by 4,4 in the last 10 years. Only the manufacture of pellets in 2018 needed three million cubic meters of pinewood in Spain and its forecast is that manufacturing will be multiplied by two in 2022.

The use of biomass for electricity generation foresees an important leap with the implementation of 200MW in the coming months. Government plans provide multiply by three the current installed power, something that would be key to profitable forest exploitation.

At the end of 2019 Europe Forestry released the Europe Chippers EC640 chipper as a prototype. The project was initiated by the need of a client who required a machine that could be transported by car and easily obtain wood chips for biomass anywhere. After months of testing, the Europe Chippers EC640 chipper is now available for sale with three power options: - 200CV CAT C4.4 Tier IV Final engine
