Kessler zero-emission solid biomass
Pellets are a fuel that is second to none in many areas. Compared to other renewable energy sources (RES), such as photovoltaics or heat pumps, pellets - in local use - are much more sufficient because they have a significantly lower carbon footprint. Currently, biomass is the source of two-thirds of the EU renewable energy, much more than solar panels or wind farms. Different types of biomass, including wood pellets made from wood or organic waste, are considered renewable energy and are the most ecological among solid fuels. Unfortunately, along with the development of renewable energy and the increasing demand for solid biomass, this industry caused significant interference in the natural environment, and it was often destructive. For this reason, the production of pellets is also transforming, aiming to sort out the whole situation by introducing a new classification for the raw material used for the production of solid biomass. The EU policy and the document created by the European Commission exclude mixed forest wood and the so-called virgin, i.e., the most ecologically valuable. At present, as much as 18% of the biomass used in the EU comes from virgin forests. Shortly all wood waste and waste from the food industry will be the primary raw material for pellet production, and it will be one of the most effective ways to use this waste. The production and use of such pellets for energy purposes will have a negligible impact on the natural environment. Kessler measured and researched the possibility of producing solid biomass from wood waste and agricultural waste from our Smart Carbon Plantation. These two types of waste generated on our plantations will be a vast source of cheap, renewable, and emission-free raw material for solid biomass production. We have reached remarkable results that fully meet this fuel requirement; producing no emissions in the process is a significant additional advantage. We are delighted to share our great satisfaction and the results we obtained from our raw material. We received the following parameters: calorific value 17.5 MJ / kg, ash content 0.3%, and of course, no heavy metals, no sulfur, and no chlorides. These results are another validation of Kessler's comprehensive solution.
