The European Directive 2009/28 / EC defines biomass as
"the biodegradable fraction of products,waste and Residues from biological origin
agriculture (including substances vegetable and animal), forestry and related Industries
including fisheries and aquaculture, as well as the biodegradable fraction of industrial and municipal waste. "
The biomass used for energy purposes consists in all those organic materials which can be used as fuel or processed into other substances, solid, liquid, gaseous, easier to use in conversion plants. The biomass and fuels derived from them emit in the atmosphere, during combustion, an amount of carbon dioxide more or less corresponding to that which is absorbed previously by the plants during their growth process.
The use of biomass for energy purposes does not cause the release of more carbon dioxide, the main cause of the greenhouse effect. Moreover, given their nature, biodegradability is a further advantage for the environment.
Our plants are designed to take advantage of these resources and through the technologies developed we are able to solve the most common problems that arise in their use.
The technology developed allows in fact, unlike other in commerce, to use power in the system, of any type of product of organic matrix
(wood chips, pruning residues, organic waste, etc.) mixed with wood chips having a moisture content up to 50%.
The main biomasses usable are many, with a base of wood chips a mix may contain up to 50% moisture and a presence of fine parts up to 30%.
