Heats smartly with Kondor Group biomass machines. The biomass used for energy purposes makes it possible to use organic materials transformed into solid, liquid or gaseous fuels. Kondor Group biomass machines work with different types of biomass, from pellets to wood chips, from pomace pits to corn pellets. We take everything he has given us from the Earth to reinvest and preserve it, producing and consuming with respect for the environment and human beings.

Kondor Group biomass machines use as fuel: 

  • Wood pellets 

  • Wood chips

  • Pomace peanut

  • Corn pellets

Wood pellets

Pellet wood is a fuel obtained from virgin wood, sometimes starting from processing waste, such as planing, sawdust or scraps, other times from the whole log. The binding capacity of the lignin, contained in the wood, allows to obtain a compact product without adding additives and chemicals extraneous to the wood, obtaining a high-yield fuel.

In the production process, the raw material is selected in advance, dried and cleaned of impurities, to obtain a constant quality, with a well-defined residual humidity; the preparation also involves a selection of more tender wood species (firs, conifers) and a certain qualitative and dimensional homogeneity; the greater accuracy of this preparation translates into a better quality of the finished product and less energy consumption for production.

Wood chips

Wood chips are wood reduced to flakes, ranging in size from a few millimeters to a few centimeters. It is produced by cutting logs and twigs through the chipper, using waste from agricultural, forestry or dedicated crops (short rotation). It is an excellent biofuel for natural and / or industrial processes.

Like other ligno-cellulosic biomasses, it cannot be considered in itself a renewable source due to the long formation and growth times of the original plant. However, wood chips can be the raw material for the growth of the original plant species in a closed cycle. A necessary condition for renewability is that the withdrawal from the source does not exceed the growth of the same.

Pomace peanuts

Olive pomace is a by-product of the olive oil extraction process consisting of pulps, peels and peanut fragments. Currently there are machines for the treatment of pomace that separate the water, the husks and the pulp from the pits. The latter is presented as an excellent fuel: ideal for powering boilers, fireplaces, stoves, burners, ovens and all types of multi-fuel boilers. It can be an excellent alternative to pellets or wood chips.

The heating power given by its combustion is very high: it is around 6.2 / 7.4 Kw / Kg. Having a higher specific weight than other biomass, energy production is greater. Furthermore, while reducing the production of fumes and ash, it guarantees less maintenance and a longer life to the boilers.

Corn pellets

Corn pellets are an excellent alternative to wood pellets thanks to the characteristics of maize, with its very compact and homogeneous grains in size. Furthermore, corn pellets can be processed in the same way as wood pellets. To become a good fuel, once ready and packaged it is left to mature in a dry and dry place, to avoid the formation of mold and the accumulation of moisture that could compromise its calorific value.

With 6,000 kWh / kg and a humidity of about 15%, the calorific value of the corn pellet is about 30% higher than that of the wood pellet. Corn, but also pomace and sunflower, emit zero carbon dioxide during combustion, which means zero pollution.

By using organic materials transformed into fuels, you will not only have greater savings and quality in the diffusion of heat, but you will also be sustainable for the planet.
