The integration of human activity in the environment counts on biomass as a great ally.

Biomass consists on organic matter, of vegetable or animal origin, and the materials that come from its natural or artificial transformation. A very broad concept that includes everything from waste from forestry, agriculture and livestock to the organic fraction of domestic and industrial waste, through the by-products of agro-food industries and wood processing.

The main fuels obtained from biomass are firewood, wood chips, pellets, olive stones and fruit peels.

The thermal applications of the biomass can be carried out mainly through boilers, stoves or chimneys. The boilers are the only equipment capable of providing heating and sanitary hot water at the same time, while the stoves and fireplaces allow to heat the room in which they are located. The boilers can be installed both in single-family homes and in neighboring communities of any size, since boilers can be found from 20 kW to more than 1 MW (and much larger sizes for heat networks and industrial or power generation applications).

An especially interesting option is the heat networks, which due to their greater energy efficiency and the use of economies of scale, allow reaching a greater number of users.
