Optimizing processes

Industry, neighborhood communities and District Heating in Spain opt for biomass in search of economic savings and cost control. The latest data indicates that there are more than 11.000 equipment between 50 and 1.000 kW y more than 1.000 that exceed 1 MW thermal power.

More than a thousand computers are installed annually in Spain and boilers for industrial and commercial use capable of generating hot water, thermal oil and steam, as well as hot and cold air generators, dryers, ovens, air conditioners or industrial cold generators that can use biomass as fuel.

Many companies manage their own by-products and value them energetically in ceramics, cement, paper, wood, tobacco, coffee, dried fruit, all kinds of farms and other agricultural products, greenhouses and in the canning industry, among others.


Termosun has supplied a 4MW Austrian Binder boiler that will allow it to gain energy efficiency and expand the supply network by 20% in the urban center of Sant Pere de Torelló in the province of Barcelona. The commissioning has been carried out by the Suris company.
Most biomass boiler manufacturers in Europe have worked well in advance to put on the market a catalog of high-quality equipment that meets ecodesign requirements.
KRONOSPAN is a company founded in 1897 in Lungötz (Austria). Currently, it occupies a privileged position in the board and its derivatives market. In 2002, it created its subsidiary in Spain, KRONOSPAN SPAIN, with the aim of marketing its products in our country. At the end of 2012, it acquired the assets of the INTERBON GROUP and generated the subsidiaries: KRONOSPAN, SL, KRONOSPAN MDF, SL and KRONOSPAN CHEMICALS, SL
Renewable electricity is produced from forest biomass and wood in one of the largest cogeneration plants in Switzerland, in Sisseln. Since the end of 2018, it supplies electricity to 17.500 homes and heating to many more customers thanks to District Heating. To receive, process, store and feed the wood chips, the company participating in Expobiomasa, Vecoplan, supplied all the machinery and carried out the installation and commissioning, in an extremely tight time frame.
Since 2013, the Castilla y León Regional Government has been carrying out an important program of energy saving and efficiency actions promoted through the Castilla y León Public Society for Infrastructure and Environment (SOMACYL). Within the scope of this program, SOMACYL has carried out 30 actions to replace fossil fuels with biomass, through the installation of individual boilers and centralized heating networks that use wood pellets and wood chips as fuel.
In Catalonia, the use of pellets and other biofuels has increased significantly. This has made it possible to valorise products extracted from forest cleaning.
The observatory aims to be a benchmark for the rest of the observatories with this ecological transition project using biomass as fuel.
The use of biomass in the thermal installation of the heated pool manages to considerably reduce the use of fossil fuels.
The Internet has become so common that many of us have difficulty imagining what it takes to realize this digital world, including the number of servers and necessary for its operation. Most data centers around the world rely heavily on fossil fuels to produce the electricity and cooling needed to run the necessary equipment, what some call the "dark side" of the Internet.
Pokupso is a Croatian municipality that covers 75% of its energy needs with biomass thanks to a district heating. They will reach 100% in just five years.
