Biomass as a source of raw materials for energy efficient boilers
Biomass as a source of raw materials for energy efficient boilers
The project aims at the processing of wood waste, straw and other biomass resources for its further use as an energy efficient and environmentally friendly type of fuel.
Rivne region has a number of boilers that run on biomass, but there is shortage of fuel for proper operation of the equipment. Biomass is a renewable energy source, which can be easily managed. The project aims to raise awareness of the local community on the use of alternative fuel and its benefits, demonstrate the methods of processing of wood waste into biomass and its further utilization as an energy-efficient and eco-friendly fuel. This would be reached through procurement and installation of special equipment to mill and transport raw materials.
