Title: Thermal Supply of a Township through Wood Chips
The township Staré Mesto pod Landštejnem is surrounded by 45 km² of forest area that produces an annual cull of 22,500 m³. With 600 residents, the township requires a biomass heat plant for 7800 m³ of cull for an adequate supply. Therefore such a plant was built and can be driven sustainably for years. Furthermore, the community wants to establish its own energy recovery forest and is planning to acquire the necessary properties.
