The fourteenth edition of Expobiomasa ends in an atmosphere of renewed optimism shared by the exhibitors and the 9.596 visitors who have attended the event organized by the Spanish Biomass Association (AVEBIOM), from May 9 to 11 at the Valladolid Fair.

The fourteenth edition of Expobiomasa ends in an atmosphere of renewed optimism shared by the exhibitors and the 9.596 visitors who have attended the event organized by the Spanish Biomass Association (AVEBIOM), from May 9 to 11 at the Valladolid Fair.

Javier Diaz, president of AVEBIOM, points out that “The profile of the visitor to Expobiomasa is increasingly specialized, more professional; something that the exhibitors appreciate because it makes it easier for the contacts at the fair to materialize in the form of profitable operations”.

Forest biomass suppliers and promoters of projects to generate thermal energy on an industrial scale have established their first agreements at the fair in these three days and, in the domestic heating sector, confidence has reigned in the recovery, already begun, of sales of stoves and boilers thanks to the gradual return to affordable prices for solid biofuels for consumers.

Good prospects for the pellet market and for heating networks

As a finale to three days of activity, the conference room once again reached capacity in its last two sessions, dedicated to two topics of great importance for the sector: the pellet market in Spain and Europe and the situation of heat networks with biomass in our country.

Manolis Karampinis, responsible for business development at Bioenergy Europe, highlighted that last year bioenergy, including pellets, was the most competitive form of energy in Europe, and also in Spain, despite the increase in production costs that shook the sector and pushed up consumer prices. “We have learned from our mistakes”, has exposed, “And for the next heating season we don't expect prices to rise as sharply as in 2022, as supply chains are getting organized earlier and better.”

The representatives of the most important associations in the country related to biomass -AVEBIOM, APROPELLETS, AEFECC, Bioenergy Cluster of Catalonia y Galician Biomass Cluster- have agreed with Karampinis' analysis and foresee a more balanced campaign between supply and demand in Spain for the coming season, due to easier access to raw material than the previous year and due to the stocks in the hands of users and distributors.

They also harbor the hope that the reduced VAT will be maintained for pellets and convey the need to extend its application to all solid biofuels (such as olive pits or almond shells) and also to combustion equipment and to the renewable heat supplied by ESCOs and heat networks to citizens and industry.

Biomass is the most competitive renewable energy for district heat networks

Veolia, Engie, REBI, DH Ecoenergías and Somacyl and Valladolid City Hall, builders and promoters of the largest biomass heat networks in the country, have participated in the last session, co-organized by AVEBIOM and ADHAC.

 The speakers made it clear: heating networks with renewable energy, and especially those that use biomass as the main source, are a perfect solution to profitably and efficiently decarbonise cities. But its deployment on a large scale and faster than the current one requires a specific regulatory framework, more information to citizens about the economic and environmental advantages, and a greater number of companies technically trained to tackle projects from start to finish.

ADHAC presented its report on heat networks showing that 8 out of 10 work with renewable energy and that 76% of them use biomass.

The energy that an industry needed for its production processes or a neighborhood community or a hotel to heat its residents in 2022 was 4,6 times more expensive if it was obtained with gas than if wood chips were used.

The energy that an industry needed for its production processes or a neighborhood community or a hotel to heat its residents in 2022 was 4,6 times more expensive if it was obtained with gas than if wood chips were used.

Domestic pellet consumers, for their part, saved 44% compared to gas consumers. These are data from Eurostats and IDAE prepared by the Spanish Association of Biomass for the second semester of 2022 in Spain.

When in the summer of 2022 we saw how the energy crisis was literally running over us, the solid biofuel manufacturing sector -pellets, chips, bone...- set itself two objectives: to ensure the supply of the national market and to maintain price competitiveness against the fossil fuels.

Thus, national manufacturers and distributors controlled the volume of their exports to Central Europe, where the sale prices, despite the higher cost of transport and the consequent emissions, were much higher and the distribution centers were advancing purchases to try to avoid the collapse and an excessive rise in prices in their markets.

The vertiginous increase in the costs of electricity -in August 2022, one of the months with the highest production in pellet factories in Spain, the cost of electricity multiplied by five compared to the previous year- and of wood at source, caused due to a much higher demand than the supply, caused the unusual rise in pellet prices, which the producers tried as far as possible not to pass on in all their magnitude to the consumers.

Now that the waters are beginning to calm down, we see that both objectives have been met: there have been enough pellets and chips for consumers and prices, despite being much higher than the previous year, have continued to maintain an appreciable differential with those of the conventional fossil fuels (electricity, gas and heating oil), confirming that biomass has been, in 2022, the most economical source of energy for heating.

The European Statistical Office, Eurostats, has published the average prices, including taxes and fees, that consumers have actually paid in Spain and in the rest of the countries in 2022 and there we once again verify that biomass is the energy source that most savings generates heating and industrial heat users, sectors that consume close to 40% of the total energy in our country.

Comparing…

If we look at the prices that domestic consumers we have paid for energy, including taxes, fees, caps, etc., we see that electricity has had an average price of 33,50 euro cents per kWh, gas 18,55 cents, diesel 11,34 cents and the pellet 10,38 cents per kWh. In summary: heating with gas is 44% more expensive than heating with pellets, and heating with electric radiators, for example, costs three times as much as heating with pellets.

focusing attention in large consumers such as a community of neighbors, a hotel or an industry, for example, the average price of industrial gas in the second half of 2022 reached 13,68 euro cents per kWh, double that in 2021 and triple that in 2020, compared to the unbeatable price of wood chips, whose average was 2,95 euro cents per kWh during the second half of last year.

Conclusion…

If we look at the price that consumers pay in the end, including fixed costs, tolls, taxes and the final prices set by energy companies when the supply runs out, biomass heating is much cheaper.

A fair that never stops growing

The last edition of Galiforest Abanca, which took place from June 30 to July 2, 2022, was the largest held so far, exceeding both in terms of signatures and exhibitors present as well as in surface area and attendance.

Thus, 7.161 visitors linked to the forestry sector attended (27% more than at the previous event, held in 2018). In the exhibition area, they were able to learn about the products, services and proposals of 371 exhibiting firms (47% more) from 26 countries (24% more), of which 96 were direct exhibitors (26% more) from different points of Spain, Portugal, Italy, Latvia and Slovenia. In its exhibition area, which occupied 13.726 square meters (16% larger), forestry machinery, equipment and spare parts were displayed with a value of more than 40 million euros, which meant 74% more. Some figures and support from the sector that have meant that Galiforest Abanca is now consolidated as the largest forestry fair in Spain.

The Spanish Biomass Association (AVEBIOM) announces the dates of the 15th edition of the reference event for the bioenergy sector in the Iberian Peninsula. The international fair for biomass technologies will be held on May 6, 7 and 8, 2025 at Feria de Valladolid.

Increases interest in industrial facilities and in the domestic sphere

Biomass is gaining more and more interest in the industry, which inevitably needs to be decarbonized in the coming years. According to the AVEBIOM Biomass Observatory, the installation of high-power biomass boilers has increased since 2022 in all industrial sectors. This increase is due in part to the rising costs of power generation with fossil fuels, along with the recognition that biomass offers an efficient, renewable and sustainable alternative.

In fact, remember Javier Díaz, president of AVEBIOM, “in the 2023 edition, we already observed an increase in exhibitors related to energy generation from biomass in large industrial boilers and heat networks, where biomass represents 60% of total installations.”

For the 2025 edition, Javier Díaz assures, “we expect significant participation from manufacturing companies and providers of technology and solutions in this field, from all over the world.”

Moreover, the stoves and boilers sector Biomass continues to gain ground as an option for heating homes, especially since the price of pellets and other solid biofuels began to normalize in December 2022. A survey carried out at the end of 2023 across Europe on consumer behavior clearly reflects that pellet It has the favor of users: 90% of pellet consumers assure that they will continue using it.

EXPOBIOMASA 2025 will be the ideal place for manufacturers and importers to reach agreements with new distributors for their home heating products with pellets and other biomass throughout the country.

Bioenergy Ibérica has carried out the necessary work to increase the steam production capacity of the biomass boiler in Nestlé's chocolate factory in La Penilla de Cayón (Cantabria) by up to 40%.

Iberian Bioenergy has carried out the necessary work to increase the steam production capacity of the biomass boiler in the chocolate factory that Nestlé has in La Penilla de Cayón (Cantabria) by up to 40%.

The generation of thermal energy with the biomass boiler allows Nestlé to reduce annual net emissions of CO2 equivalent by 2.850 tons.

The factory's biomass boiler uses the cocoa husk obtained in the cocoa roasting process as biofuel to produce steam, which in turn becomes a source of energy for the roasting process of this raw material.

The wood that the boiler will consume from now on meets the sustainability requirements imposed by current regulations, specifically the European Renewable Energy Directive, RED II-III. What is fully guaranteed thanks to the European certification system SURE.

José Luis Romero, Director of Operations at Bioenergy Ibérica, highlights the company's commitment to seeking energy solutions that provide local energy: "Transforming the industry with projects like these allows us to achieve less dependence on fossil fuels, as well as “achieve an economy and society free of net CO2 emissions”

This initiative adds to Nestlé's efforts to decarbonize its production processes, evidencing its commitment to the circular economy.

The award aims to highlight the constant work towards sustainability and maintenance of forest masses, which consolidates Ence - Energía y Celulosa SA, as a leader in the research and development of best practices for their improvement.

The leadership of Ence in energy production from biomass in Spain is unquestionable; With the AVEBIOM award we want to recognize the pioneering nature of the company in the certification of the environmental sustainability of the biomass it uses through the European SURE system. Its responsible and sustainable management of agroforestry resources is, without a doubt, an example to follow.

1,6 million tons of biomass used to generate renewable energy in 2022

Ence It has more than 1.300 employees, whose work positions the company as a leader in Europe in the eucalyptus pulp sector and in the generation of renewable energy with biomass in Spain, where it achieved a production in 2022 of 2.321,1 GWh.

Ence manages more than 66.000 hectares of forest mass in Spain, of which 22% is dedicated exclusively to the protection and conservation of ecosystems. Its forest assets are 83% certified with some of the most advanced international standards in forest management and traceability and chain of custody, such as PEFC and FSC®. The biomass used for energy production has been certified under the European system SURE which guarantees the highest standards of environmental sustainability required by the EU.

In 2022, Ence produced renewable energy using more than 1,6 million tons of biomass, considerably reducing the amount of fuel from forest masses, which is probably the best forest fire prevention system in Spain.

Magnon Green Energy, the renewable energy subsidiary of Ence and associated with AVEBIOM, is the first Spanish company in the production of renewable energy with biomass. It has a total generation capacity of 266 MW in its eight power plants: three in Huelva, two in Ciudad Real, one in Córdoba, one in Jaén and one in Mérida. These are electricity generation plants that are powered exclusively by biomass of agroforestry origin from nearby environments, which contributes to the reduction of burning of the excess byproduct and the reactivation of the economy in rural areas.

On the other hand, in Ence's pulp biofactories, in Pontevedra and Navia, 112 MW are generated through its sustainable generation and cogeneration plants that ensure the energy self-sufficiency of these facilities.

It has currently launched new business initiatives linked to the forestry and bioenergy sector such as Ence Biogas and Ence Terra.

The Furanflex® system offers the possibility of rehabilitating chimneys and ducts of any shape, size and length without requiring extensive masonry work. Its installation process is extremely fast, allowing the internal reconstruction of the chimneys and their immediate use in a matter of hours.

The Furanflex® system offers the possibility of Rehabilitate chimneys and flues of any shape, size and length without requiring extensive masonry work. Its installation process is extremely fast, allowing the internal reconstruction of the chimneys and their immediate use in a matter of hours.

Chimneys, both built and metallic, experience a continuous process of deterioration, which is attributable not so much to the materials used but rather to the high temperatures to which they are subjected.

Likewise, the chemical reactions derived from the products and processes of combustion, regardless of the type of fuel used, also contribute to this degradation process. Chimney repair involves a significant expense and, in many cases, is accompanied by masonry work and renovations that are annoying and expensive.

The Furanflex® method involves inserting a thermosetting lining made of a composite material into the old duct. Water vapor is then injected, causing the coating to conform to the walls of the duct. Once the duct expands, the catalyzing process begins and within a few hours, the coating is completely hardened and ready for use.

The system is integrated without splices and guarantees total airtightness. Adapts to the shape and trajectory of the original duct. With a thickness of between 3 and 5 mm, the diameter of the primary duct is minimally reduced, which does not affect the chimney draft. Its hardness is comparable to that of steel, being non-combustible, resistant to corrosion and with a heat resistance capacity of up to 1.000 degrees Celsius.

Dr. Humo, a company specializing in the installation, maintenance and repair of chimneys that run on biomass, presented this product at Expobiomasa 2023, along with tools and equipment for the professional chimney sweep.

The Spanish Biomass Association, AVEBIOM, is the only association that since 2004 brings together the main economic actors in the bioenergy sector throughout the entire value chain, and whose objective is to promote the development of this business sector in Spain and contribute to increasing the consumption of biomass for energy purposes in a sustainable way.

The Spanish Biomass Association, AVEBIOM, is the only association that since 2004 brings together the main economic actors in the bioenergy sector throughout the entire value chain, and whose objective is to promote the development of this business sector in Spain and contribute to increasing the consumption of biomass for energy purposes in a sustainable way.

On May 9, 10 and 11, he celebrated EXPOBIOMASA in Valladolid, the sector event that revitalizes like no other the marketing of pellet production equipment and other solid biofuels for sustainable heat generation as a measure to combat climate change and in favor of the decarbonization of energy and the bioeconomy. There have been 9.596 professional visitors, of which 85% come from outside the Valladolid province, with more than a thousand coming from other countries.

Subsequently, on October 3 and 4, the III Renewable Gas Show, in collaboration with the Spanish Biogas Association and numerous public and private entities. The result is that they doubled the participation figures of the previous edition: 3.162 Spanish professional visitors and 432 international professionals. This event tries to accelerate the start-up of projects for new biomethane production plants in Spain.

In parallel to the Hall, the 16th International Bioenergy Congress, which with 792 registered has turned Valladolid into the nerve center of a new sector that perfectly meets the postulates of the cities climate neutral.

The city of Pisuerga is positioned as the headquarters of numerous initiatives linked to bioenergy, which today provides 60% of all renewable energy consumed in Europe, more than other renewable energies combined. In fact, the Valladolid City Council considers collaboration in the activities carried out by AVEBIOM to be of utmost interest, due to their business, professional and technological nature and because it is a measure of support for the energy transition of the productive fabric, and in particular of the industrial sector of the city.

The Valladolid City Council works to promote innovation policies and support the knowledge economy, to support entrepreneurship and companies, with strategic projects to attract investment and the internationalization of the city, in addition to promoting economic cooperation relations. and commercial as well as relations with institutions and associations of an economic and commercial nature.

An action that has been key to promoting these policies has been the collaboration that exists between the City Council of Valladolid and the Spanish Biomass Association to carry out activities to promote bioenergy. In fact, the Spanish Biomass Association publicly recognized in the three events that the success of the calls is due in part to the collaboration between the association itself and the Valladolid City Council.

The company QUEBINEX from Cáceres, which participated in Expobiomasa 2023, has facilitated a strategic change in energy technology in many bakeries in Extremadura, replacing diesel burners with biomass ones, which the same company designs, builds and installs.

The company from Cáceres QUEBINEX, which participated in Expobiomasa 2023, has facilitated a strategic change in energy technology in many bakeries in Extremadura, replacing diesel burners with biomass ones, which the same company designs, builds and installs.

With daily heat needs in the ovens, the savings generated by using biomass instead of diesel in a bakery is between 30 and 60% from the first day. In addition, the excellent behavior of the pellet or the olive stone compared to diesel or gas improves the quality of the breads and baked doughs, since they provide a more gradual heat that facilitates slower and more perfect cooking.

In addition to the bakery sector, the company serves other industries with thermal energy needs with burners of different powers and with other products such as biomass hot air generators, oriented, above all, to the agricultural and livestock market (farms) and for some sawmills.

Quebinex has a range of biomass burners between 20 kW and 3 MW, which can work with different solid biofuels: pellets, olive pits, almond shells, pistachios, peach pits... In addition, equipment over 150 kW They have an automatic cleaning system.

A company that extends beyond national borders.

Javier Martínez Lesmes, commercial director of Quebinex and head of the company's internationalization, explains how it has gained a presence in countries around the world since, in 2018, the company installed the first burners in neighboring Portugal in the agricultural and livestock sectors.

Its entry into France led to an expansion of its production which, since then, includes hot air generators. In 2022 they sold 10 hot air generators with a 200 kW multi-fuel burner, GT 210 BIO. In this country they have a network of partners for optimal after-sales service.

In Kenya, a 300 kW burner has already been installed in the chemical industry and they plan to manufacture twenty more. While in Uruguay and Chile they are placing burners and generators on farms, plantations, dryers, greenhouses and bakeries. At the moment they are finalizing contacts to enter the Brazilian regions of Paraná, Santa Catarina and Rio Grande do Sul.

More recently, they have entered Morocco where they have placed 12 biomass burners in as many diesel boilers, which were not used due to the high price of diesel.
