Using biomass to produce heat, electrical energy or fuel results in a balanced CO2 scorecard, because no more CO2 is released into the atmosphere than was previously bound biochemically.
CO2 savings adding up to roughly 28000 tonnes result each year for the communities of Toblach/Dobbiaco and Innichen/San Candido through using wood as a source of energy to produce heat and electricity.
Exhaust gases pass through an electrical filter and, further downstream, a flue gas condenser unit to purify the gases of dust and particles, after which an induced draft fan draws the gases into the smokestack – white smoke is the result.
42% of South Tyrol is covered with forest. It is the source of a clean, sustainable energy – the indigenous raw material wood.
