The Community supports the implementation of projects that promote forest biomass as an opportunity for sustainable development

Saturday, November 30th, 2013

boiler installation bioenergy is promoted, with which cease to emit into the atmosphere annually 372.9 tons of carbon dioxide in the region

This initiative is included in the European Proforbiomed project, led the Region in which 18 partners from six countries involved in the Mediterranean basin

The Ministry of Presidency, through the Directorate General for the Environment, promotes the implementation of energy efficiency projects to help increase opportunities for development and production of renewable energy from forest biomass utilization, creating a chain sustainable energy.

The presidential adviser, Manuel Campos, stressed the "great energy potential" biomass, whose forte is the production of heat, since play without grants and subsidies, with traditional fuels such as gas and oil.

In this regard, he noted the significant impact of the biomass on the monthly savings on a home with an oil boiler which could exceed 50 percent.

Campos noted that the following period 2014-2020 is "key to the development of biomass as a renewable energy source in the southern regions of Europe."

This initiative is included in the European project Proforbiomed (Promotion of Forest Biomass in the Mediterranean), led by the Ministry of the Presidency, in which 18 partners from six countries involved in the Mediterranean basin, including France, Portugal, Slovenia, Italy, Greece and Spain.

Thus, we have launched several pilot projects by the Presidency and ministries of Agriculture and Water in collaboration with the towns of Mula and Bullas, consisting in the replacement of old gas or oil-fired boilers with new biomass in buildings public ownership, such as schools and municipal pools.

With the installation of these boilers bioenergy, they cease to emit into the atmosphere annually 372.9 tons of carbon dioxide in the Region of Murcia, so that in the next ten years will be avoided emission of 3,729 tonnes of CO2.

In addition to the environmental benefits, the replacement of boilers cited the cost savings on fuel is added, which is estimated at 678,918 euros over the next decade.

Energy saving

The Region as project coordinator Proforbiomed also promotes other facilities that would be very profitable for the government by the energy savings that would result, such as 'Distric heating and cooling systems' (heating and cooling) and facilities CHP driving the combined production of heat and electricity.

Such facilities, very common in the countries of northern and central Europe, providing heat, but with the latest technology can also generate cold, so it can be effective in complex public buildings with high energy bill, as hospitals.

Another added advantage of these facilities is the type of fuel used: forest and agricultural biomass.

Thus, the use of forest biomass will result in environmental improvement, since it sits on pruning and silvicultural works that increase conservation of forests and forest fire prevention, while agricultural biomass obtained from pruning crop, which would mean new income for farmers.
