300.000 installations in operation

The biomass can generate savings even higher than the 50% in the bill for heating and hot water of users and improves the quality of life and comfort in the home. In Spain there are almost 300.000 biomass equipment working efficiently, and its use is taking off with force its use in all its territories, although there is a long way to compare with the rest of Europe where 16 already contributes% of the energy for heating and refrigeration.

The installation not only grows in homes, also in neighborhood communities, industries, restaurants, offices, public buildings, schools, hospitals, sports centers, residences, hotels, etc.

SCHOTT ROBAX® invites you to take a look at the future at Expobiomasa, the fair held in Valladolid from the 24 to the 26 in September of 2019. The German firm has 15.500 employees in 34 countries and comes to Expobiomasa (pavilion 4 / stand 465) to "captivate" visitors with the latest developments related to their special glasses and glass-ceramics. The serial production of ROBAX® glass-ceramic panels began 40 years ago and since then more than 100 million units have been sold.
The Government Board of the City of Sant Antoni approved the May 10 the contracting of the installation of a biomass boiler to supply the needs of the sports complex Can Coix. The tender for this project has been called for 292.526 euros. This action will involve the installation of a thermal generator (boiler) of forest biomass chips to replace the current gas generator in the municipal pool.
Pellet stoves in Europe: more and more. The European trend regarding the installation of new pellet stoves is very positive. Based on the data from the Statistical Report prepared by Bioenergy Europe, we can estimate that sales increased by 16% between 2016 and 2017. At the end of 2017 there were in Europe over 4,6 millions of pellet stoves operating thanks to annual sales that exceeded the 570.000 units.
The Spanish Association of Biomass Energy Valorization (Avebiom) joins the tendency of most EU countries to guarantee the quality of biomass installation companies and has launched the first seal of (IBC). It is a brand that supports the quality and specialization of companies in the installation, operation, maintenance and repair of thermal biomass installations.
The Swedish company, Trelleborg Wheel Systems has announced that it will completely redesign the manufacturing process of its solid tires. The company will do so through the introduction of an advanced biomass boiler.
How a biomass installer is trained Although the increase of installers trained in biomass is remarkable compared to years ago, Araceli Pimentel, of BRONPI, believes that "an important part does not yet have sufficient knowledge". There is no regulated official training for installers of biomass stoves and boilers, so in practice, this is acquired with the experience of day-to-day work.
The main objective of the work started at 2016 is to identify, design, model and develop a prototype of optimal filtration and particle retention, based on electrostatic technology (ESP), electrostatic precipitators for application in domestic boilers. At the beginning of March there was a meeting of the SIREP research project, led by Dinak, a company exhibiting expobiomasa 2019, in which the Energy Technologies Group of the University of Vigo also participates.
When it comes to heating your home if you are looking for savings and sustainability, a pellet or biomass stove is one of the most efficient heating systems. And as indicated from www.aquatubo.com at the time of acquiring one of these systems must take into account 3 essential features: Location The place where you will place your stove is very important as the heat produced by a pellet stove will reach those areas that are in contact with the stove.
The metamorphosis of POST Luxembourg's Hotel des Poste combines sustainable technology to minimize energy consumption through natural ventilation, solar, wind and biomass. The design of this carbon-free architecture is based on the circular economy and the concept "from cradle to cradle", a holistic method that is concerned with ensuring that everything that involves a product - from the conception of the idea to the decline - be sustainable and its life cycle does not end.
In recent years, pellet heating has been installed in the Balearic Islands due to its many advantages. Pellet heating is breaking billing records in 2018. According to the data registered in habitissimo, the 50% of the heating systems installed in the Balearic Islands are pellets.
Air emissions are highly regulated, legislation and regulations regarding emissions from energy production facilities are going to be increasingly stringent in the near future. At a regulatory level, in the coming years, small and medium sized biomass consuming facilities will be subject to emission limits of various atmospheric pollutants according to their power.
The Spanish Association of Biomass Energy Valorization (Avebiom) will promote the implementation of digital emission control systems in biomass combustion plants of small and medium power in urban environments thanks to the Digital Biomass project, whose main objective is "to carry out analysis of the possibilities, difficulties and challenges of implementing innovative particle emission monitoring systems through a panel of chemical and environmental sensors in biomass combustion plants
