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.
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.
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.
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.
After the stoppage of activity due to the confinement in March that coincided with the end of the last heating season, the second half of 2020 is being very active for the biomass sector in Spain and throughout Europe. Thousands of new facilities that have already been put into operation this atypical autumn and together with the start-up of large electricity generation plants and the publication of aid to the sector are reactivating it.
For the fourth year we celebrate our Bioenergy Day, as 21 other EU states have already done, highlighting the enormous biomass potential of Spain and its strategic contribution to the success of the energy transition underway.
AVEBIOM wanted to thank in a special way Dr. Christian Rakos, current president of the World Bioenergy Association, for his commitment to the dissemination and development of the solid biomass sector for energy uses in Spain during the last 16 years, giving him the award Promote Bioenergy 2020.
Spain managed to reduce its CO6,2 emissions by 2% in 2019. That is what the Advance of Greenhouse Gas Emissions, published by the Ministry for the Ecological Transition and the Demographic Challenge at the beginning of summer, indicated. The final data will be produced throughout this fall, this figure supports the viability of using non-fossil energy sources.
In the basement there is a biomass boiler, for burning native wood chips, as a central source of energy for the heating system and for the production of sanitary hot water. The chips are discharged from the street through two mouths specifically designed to facilitate supply. This warehouse is connected to the boiler through an auger that allows the supply of this natural fuel to be automated.
