ABP Food Group is recognized as an industry leader in the United Kingdom when it comes to sustainable practices and environmental initiatives.
The Swedish Bioenergy Association publishes the BioHeat map every year, which shows all heat networks in the country that use biomass as fuel. The 2017 map, published in February this year, shows 511 facilities. 292 of these plants generate more than 10 GWh of heat. The remaining 219 are smaller plants that supply 2-10 GWh. In addition, there are an even smaller number of plants, which are not shown on the map.
One of the largest producing factories in the sector works every day for the stabilization of tariffs and ensures the continuity of the supply of Enplus certified quality pellets under the BURPELLET brand.
96.660 cubic meters (the content of 30 Olympic swimming pools) of biomass stored in 40 almost square plots of 21 x 23 meters wide and 5 meters high will supply the Cubillos del Sil plant.
The carbon absorption capacity of our forests and their carbon stock are carefully monitored. Changes in carbon stocks should not be observed in a few years and in only one tree or in individual stands, with a group of forest stands forming the mountains and forests. Carbon accounting should always be from a regional, global scope and not in a single stand or single tree, because this is what the atmosphere "sees." On a large scale, carbon capacity must be maintained at any time.
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.
It is estimated that as of November 17, bioenergy can cover all the energy needs of the 28 EU Member States until the end of 2019. An increase of two additional days compared to 2018 and 4 more than 2017.
The real challenge of the sector lies not only in replacing the polluting boilers of diesel or gas, but also old and inefficient biomass installations with modern facilities. Biomass stoves and boilers are no longer associated with archaic devices for heat, but current technology ensures that high efficiency goes hand in hand with low emissions.
