Heat – Industry

Weiss Biomass combustion plants are designed to burn many types of biomass fuels such as wood chips, straw, pellets, agricultural residues, etc. Combustion technology converts biomass fuels into several forms of useful energy for industrial or commercial use: hot air, hot water, steam and electricity.

Biomass is a profitable solution where heating processes require large amounts of energy. In greenhouses and nurseries heating is an increasing cost. Nurseries in northern latitudes have incredibly high costs of heating the greenhouses used for production of vegetables. In some countries taxes on oil, gas and district heating are so high that it may be difficult to get a good economy in the nursery. Also in canning factories, dairies, pet-food factories, instant coffee production, the cost of energy is a major expense. Many production companies can reduce their energy costs significantly by switching to biomass as their fuel for the production of hot water. If the company has a waste product i.e. husk or shells from the production of cereals or pet food, these can be used as a cost-free fuel for the hot water production.
