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.

The Remourban project has won the ASPRIMA-SIMA award for "Best Urban Regeneration Initiative" in its 19th edition, awarded by the Madrid Real Estate Exhibition (SIMA) in collaboration with the Madrid Association of Real Estate Developers (ASPRIMA). It is a reference award in Spain, with ten categories, which recognizes the best projects in the sector in areas such as innovation, company training or sustainability
The municipality of El Tiemblo, from Ávila, has received the Honorable Mention in the thirteenth edition of the @EnerAgen awards in the category 'Best Performance in the Matter of Renewable Energies', for its centralized biomass boiler project for the supply of heating and water heat ten municipal buildings using the wood chips as fuel.
On April 28, LASIAN, a national manufacturer of biomass boilers since 1967, held a technical-commercial conference to present the new designs of its Industrial Range boilers:
As a result of the business evolution of Natural Fire, the range of hot air generators by biomass combustion (GNF) is born, focused on using solid biomass from productive waste (pellets, olive pits, almond shells, etc.), in the generation of hot air flows, to be used both in industrial processes and in heating.
On May 17, the Junta de Castilla y León launches the tender for the works to build a 49 MW biomass heat network 25 km long that will supply 30.000 residents of Villa de Prado, Parquesol and Huerta del Rey: “Valladolid West".

Sugimat is a company associated with AVEBIOM, specializing in the design and manufacture of industrial biomass boilers The reference price of natural gas for the Iberian Peninsula has been rising gradually throughout 2021 and, now, with the conflict between Russia and Ukraine, it is increasing by more than 10 times its price a year ago.
The call will be published in the spring of 2022 and will be carried out through an incentive program for private companies and another aimed at the public sector, which will allow the start-up of biomass, solar thermal, geothermal, ambient energy ( aerothermal and hydrothermal) or heating and cooling microgrids of less than 1 MW of power. Once opened, it will be valid until December 31, 2023.
Castilla Termal Hotels is channeling its efforts to achieve carbon neutrality. To achieve this goal, the Solares, Burgo de Osma and Brihuega plants -the latter, under construction- are installing biomass plants, a sustainable heating system based on leftover chips from local sawmills and the remains of nearby forest mass.
