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.
In this area, we are facing the following objectives:
- to participate in developing of regional energy concepts within regional units,
- to prepare projects for the energy use of biomass in prospective areas,
- to introduce technology maintaining the effective preparation of biomass fuel and increasing energy efficiency of its recovery.
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.
