Objective

The project is focused on the demonstration of two innovative and sustainable medium size (60 kW, 100 kW) European heating systems [combustion or co-combustion], for domestic and tertiary buildings, using as fuel medium-low quality wastes from agro/forest/wood production.

The main objective of the project is to demonstrate the overall performance for two European heating systems with Mediterranean biomass, able to diversify the raw material (energy supply), reduce agro/forest/wood wastes problems and promote the use of renewable thermal energy in European countries. Each heating system is based on a sustainable and replicable approach. Raw material selected is a broad list and mix of fuels, which will allow using the most economical fuel of the market, and in addition it will improve the availability, security on supply, and opportunities to demonstrate that heating by means of biomass is possible.
