Title: EcoHeater Project
The Idéia Ambiental Institute, developed the EcoHeater Project, which consists of a new system to burn biomass fuel adapted for Brazilian industrial needs and capable of producing thermal energy at low costs. The Project is the result of researches related to the reduction of pellet’s production costs, using new drying process and cheaper raw material; the update of combustion technology for industrial production. The new pellets burner, capable of working from 350 to 3.000 kWh, can use granulated material with 6% of ashes grade, enhancing not only the value of traditional forest biomass, but of almost every vegetal species.
