The use of wood pellets as a source of thermal energy is being imposed as the most sustainable measure in economic, social and environmental terms to combat climate change. Its use encourages rural development, creates jobs and, being profitable, contributes to a sustainable, fair future with our society and the environment.
Bioenergy Barbero, energy services company and sole distributor based in Salamanca of ENplus® pellet, has recently expanded its biomass collection capacity with the installation of two fully automatic pellet silos.
Expected to close the Andorra thermal power plant in June of 2020, Forestalia proposes the construction of a new pellet plant in the same municipality. With an expected capacity of 200.000 tons per year, thus becoming the largest in Spain. This plant would create 60 direct jobs and more than indirect 350 including the collection and logistics of biomass. Forestalia currently has two such plants, located in Erla and Huerta de Rey.

Commercial splinter combustion tests of different humidities and with different fine contents carried out by GRUPO NAPARPELLET are presented to the Expobiomasa 2019 Innovation Award
Biomass combustion tests in the form of pine chips in a pilot combustion plant of 500 kWt grills at CEDER-CIEMAT. The emission of particles is clearly influenced by the quality of the chips.
The only "but" to the good performance of the pellet market, analyzed at the World Sustainable Energy Days conference, has been the stock tensions that, although it has not suffered any breakage, has been somewhat fair this season.
In general, the markets have transmitted good feelings, very different from the concerns that marked the World Sustainable Energy Days meetings two and three years ago.
During the 4th meeting of the European Federation of Olive Oil and Olive Biomass, the concern in the sector was highlighted in how to improve the circular economy of the olive grove sector, as well as the high productions and with difficult exit of the main biomass of the olive grove: the orujillo.
