We have reached the point of no return; it is already high time to act. #TimeForAction. COP25 has been sending this message the two weeks of the event. One of the central issues is the production of energy and the transition from fossil to renewable energies.
Wood pellet fuel is one type of bioenergy produced mainly from sawdust, wood shavings and other wood waste and does not contribute to greenhouse effect. In fact, forest management keeps forests clean and reduces the risk of fire. With appropriate and sustainable policies alongside with their natural regeneration, we are facing an endless source.
For a million tone of pellets, four hundred thousand tons of oil are left behind and CO2 emissions are reduced in more than a million of tons. To achieve becoming as innocuous as possible is a challenge that promotes technological development and innovation in the sector.
In terms of power, one ton of wood pellets has the energy equivalency of around five hundred litters of heating oil and can reach a combustion efficiency of over 85%. Pellets can replace oil and natural gas in public and industrial processes releasing our dependency on fossil sources.
Pellet industry promotes economy and the creation of jobs in the are and as the pellet industry is widespread all over the territory, helps to strengthen rural areas and contribute to regional balance.
For areas where there is not much raw material available, pellets are also convenient to avoid energetic dependency and ensure power supply due to extensive storage possibilities.
