Optimizing processes

In most companies we have to control operating costs exhaustively to develop our activity. Besides the cost of air conditioning, in some industries heat is needed for the development of the processes: steam, furnaces, oils, ... And this cost is usually very high and unstable if fossil fuels such as gas or diesel are used. The installation of biomass equipment in industries is a very efficient, profitable and fundable investment that you can get to know first hand in Expobiomasa.

In residential construction, the thermal demand for DHW and heating is close to 66% of the total energy consumed under normal living and use conditions. The buildings that obtain the energy of fossil fuels, obtain a low qualification when penalizing the high CO2 emissions. Renewable energies, such as biomass, do not compute either CO2 emissions or non-renewable primary energy consumption, so buildings with a poor rating can see it greatly improved if they install a new biomass boiler.

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.
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 company REBI, promoter of the Red de Calor de Aranda de Duero, has reached an agreement with the Michelin company so that the biomass project can take advantage of the excess heat of the electric cogeneration plant located in the industrial plant of Michelin dedicated to the manufacture of tires. The resulting heat will be conducted through the Heat Network so that it can be used in the heating and hot water systems of the connected dwellings.
Nasuvinsa, the public housing company of the Government of Navarra, has begun to take the first effective steps in its public housing park to replace conventional gas boilers with facilities supplied by forest biomass.
This unique facility, which begins to supply energy to the 6 industries of the La Valldan de Berga polygon (Barcelona), was conceived as a way of valuing the biomass of the region's forests after the effects of Hurricane Klaus on the wood market. of 2009. The boiler room has 2 biomass boilers of 2,3 MW each. These boilers use forest chip to heat synthetic oil to 300 degrees centigrade, which exchanges its energy with two networks, one high temperature (300 degrees and 13 bar) and another hot water (80 degrees and 8 bar).
The City of Granollers has decided to reduce the energy dependence of fossil fuels and replace them progressively with renewable energies, such as solar energy or biomass. Thus, the next exercise will replace the old natural gas boilers with biomass boilers.
Avebiom estimates that in 2020 there will be around 700 heat networks operating or in the construction phase. In order to provide adequate information to technicians and public administration officials, the Regional Government of Castilla-La Mancha and the Spanish Association for the Biological Energy Valorization (Avebiom) have organized the 2018 National Bioenergy Congress, which The 12 and 13 days of December will be held in Cuenca under the title: 'Installations and networks of heat with biomass for public use'.
Renewable energies show increasing possibilities of application in many fields of daily life. This is what they have just discovered in Bakers Craftsmen and Masters, located in Elche (Alicante), which recently released a burner for one of its ovens that uses pellets (chips and sawdust from dried and pressed wood) as fuel.
The European Commission has approved a new proposal for an energy strategy against climate change in which it proposes that all the community countries manage to reduce polluting emissions by up to 80% in 2050, which would make the EU a "climate neutral" space ┬╗In line with the commitments acquired in the Paris Climate Agreement. The proposal follows an initiative of the European Parliament, but it must still be considered by the countries in the Council to become effective, which may take years.
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.
The first bioenergy generation plant installed in a forestry company in the country will operate in 2019, in Durango.
