Modern pellet heating systems are leaders in the LCA Cologne/Berlin in July 2011. Climate change has become one of the major global challenges of our time and at the latest since the Fukushima nuclear disaster are alternative energies from the General consciousness no longer indispensable. The regenerative heat supply plays an important role when it comes to his personal contribution to the preservation of our environment. From this point of view modern pellet heating systems prove particularly exemplary, because they burn not only highly efficient, low-emission and CO2-neutral, but also deal responsibly with its raw material base, the forest. “Basically it is modern wood burning a very resource friendly heating alternative”, know Martin Bentele, diploma forest Manager and Managing Director of the German Pelletinstituts. “85 percent of the wood for the pellet production in Germany come from wood shavings, which are incurred in sawmills.
The rest is wood in the rough, which is not suitable for cutting. The currently in Germany produced pellet amount of 1.75 million tonnes could be significantly increased on the basis of the available wood chips.” Germany has not only the largest timber reserves of in Central Europe, this wood stock is currently even a year, because not even the increase to the full. Strict laws at the Federal and State level in addition ensure that there can be no overuse of the German forest. In addition to the careful with its raw material base, the pellet heating system convinced with their CO2 footprint. Expert explains Baig: “Wood is the only truly”carbon-neutral”fuel, because in contrast to oil, gas or coal burning just as much CO2 there, as the tree has previously bound in the growth.” Short routes of domestic fuel in addition ensure pellets that CO2 and primary energy balance of the wood heating extremely positive. So a pellet truck needs less than one percent of the energy content of his entire Pelletladung – and for a drive over 200 miles from what was already an unusually wide transport.
Basically, the energy usage for pellets from their production is on average only three percent of their total energy content until delivery to the consumer. With any other measure so much CO2 can be saved in the household such as with the exchange of a fossil source of heat through a pellet heating system. This impressive environmental efficiency makes the pellet heating system – in addition to their high availability and the stable price level to the future domestic heating alternative.
