Turning Biomass into Energy

Inefficient energetic use of wood, agricultural and forestry residues as well as manure has a strong environmental impact. In addition, there are also chemical substances which are harmful to our environment and should not be available endlessly. A sustainable biomass-based production of energy can be a solution.

With mechanically dewatered bio-based products, such as wood waste, grass or leaves bio-energy can be generated for covering a considerable part of an independent decentral energy supply – an important contribution to climate protection. Besides biogenic residues and waste also liquid and solid residues of the oil production can be used for gaining bio-energy.
