The Spanish Biomass Association and the Canadian Embassy in Spain organize a virtual conference on innovations and opportunities in the biomass sector between Spain and Canada with a focus on industrial processes for biomass and energy production on March 18 at 16:00 p.m. (Madrid).
In the latest report from the Biomass Observatory for 2020, it has compiled 433 biomass heat networks, which represent about 383 MW of installed thermal power. The progression of the implementation of biomass heat networks in our country is clearly positive; Since 2010, when the first 30 were inventoried, the number of facilities has multiplied by almost 15 to 433 located at the end of 2020, and to which we must add fifty in different stages of development.
New District Heating in Sestao with HERZ biomass boilers In the hands of Tecman, an engineering company specialized in energy services, the installation of a District Heating with biomass for the Txabarri-El Sol area of ​​Sestao has been carried out.
VECOPLAN expands its VHZ wood chippers series.
Sugimat, designed, manufactured and started up (turnkey project) a thermal plant consisting of two mobile biomass grate boilers.
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.
The Spanish Association of Biomass has presented two projects to the Government of Spain to promote the implementation of biomass as a source of renewable energy in municipalities with less than 5.000 inhabitants.
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.
In the production of the textile industry, processes such as dyeing, washing or ironing are carried out that require large amounts of hot water or steam. The use of biomass as an energy source contributes to the reduction of the carbon footprint; making this industry more sustainable and profitable due to the savings that are produced compared to traditional fossil fuels.
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.
It is becoming more and more obvious that we must reduce emissions and take care of our environment. There are many different types of renewable energy that can be used. What is surprising is how little biomass is used. Its use to produce heat is the most profitable there is and where the emission savings per investment amount is extremely high.
According to Decree 1042/2017, which transposes the European Directive 2015/2193, installations prior to 2018 of more than 5 MW must be adapted before 2025.
