Title: Biomass heating plant and logistics center
The combination of a biomass heating plant and a wood chip logistics center realizes a sustainable project that reflects ecology, efficiency and economy. In addition, 1316 m² of solar collectors and a modern exhaust gas condensation system have been installed; the latter binds soot and dust particles from the combustion process and removes them. The residual energy in the exhaust gas is used to raise the temperature of the return lines of the heating network. Excess energy from the solar collectors is used for additional drying of the wood chips; thus no additional energy needs to be generated, and yet the year-round supply of dry, high-quality wood chips is assured.
