The biomass belongs to the most important renewable energy sources. Its importance lies in the relatively significant resources, in its storage options and especially in improving the balance of dangerous CO2 emissions.
In this area, we are facing the following objectives:
In branch office Kamenica nad Cirochou, we use sawdust combustion technology to produce 2500 GJ; we have started to produce cleft wood fuel from waste. We start to grow energy plantations of fast-growing trees (poplar, willow, acacia, aspen, and alder) that form a promising source of biomass fuel. Energy plantations can be grown on a land unsuitable for traditional agricultural and forestry production, on soils temporarily excluded from agricultural production, contaminated soils, which are only suitable for non - food production purposes and also on the devastated areas in industrial agglomerations.
Biomass is important not only as an energy source; it has equally important and crucial role in the socio-economic aspects, especially in rural areas as it carries the potential of providing many new jobs within the industry, and helps to maintain the country.
The state-owned enterprise (SOE) with the seat in Pliešovce was founded after the splitting of Czechoslovakia in 1993. The company was established to saturate the needs for the effective and ecological forest and farmland management on the military training areas of Slovakia. The company manages the area of 65 431 ha of forest land with an annual timber extraction of about 300,000 m3. State-owned enterprise (SOE) consists of Directorate General and three branch offices based in Malacky, Kezmarok and Kamenica nad Cirochou.
