According to the International Renewable Energy Agency, biomass will soon be the source of 60% of the world’s energy. This makes biomass already the third largest renewable energy source. European Union countries have become leaders in the production of energy from biomass and in recent years biomass has been the fuel for more than 50% of ecologically produced energy.
Wooden biomass has many advantages: it is typically widely available throughout the year, it is increasingly convertible to all major forms of energy (liquid, gas, heat and electricity), it is carbon neutral or even a carbon sink, and it has the potential to restore unproductive degraded land and increase agricultural productivity.
As a result, biomass can become a leading source of renewable energy and a source of income for less developed areas.
The thermal energy extracted from biomass combustion can be used to heat facilities, for process needs or for conversion into electricity.
GETEC plants operate with all available forms of biomass, i.e. biomass in its solid, liquid and biogas forms.
GETEC has extensive experience in designing, building and operating biomass plants. Our plants operate in many European countries as well as in Poland.
