Heating with wood. Tradition meets innovation.

Wood is a traditional source of heating energy. Plentiful, renewable and CO2-neutral, this fuel is regaining popularity today as heating systems become more reliable, convenient and efficient.

Sometimes the raw material takes on a somewhat different form: small cylindrical energy bundles, known as pellets, that consist of 100% natural scrap wood and meet the most stringent demands.

A major advantage of pellet heating systems is that they offer a level of comfort and operating convenience that is almost comparable to that of oil and gas heaters. Pellets are delivered in a tanker or in sacks and stored in a bin. Using a fully automatic conveying system, the required pellet quantities are automatically transported dust-free to the boiler. 

Because of an efficiency level of over 90%, two kilograms of pellets generate the same heat energy as one litre of oil.

An exceptional ecobalance

Pellets are manufactured from wood industry waste products such as shavings and saw dust. These materials are compressed under high pressure without the addition of bonding agents. During combustion, the amount of CO2 released is no more than the amount originally captured by photosynthesis. Therefore, wood energy carriers are considered to be CO2-neutral and climate-friendly.

If log wood is available from the operator’s own resources in sufficient quantity, a log wood heating system is an ecological and economical alternative to pellet combustion. Our modern wood gasifier technology extracts a maximum of heat energy from this valuable resource.

No other heating system emits less of the greenhouse gas CO2. In addition, there is no reliance on other countries to provide the necessary fuel.
