What is biomass?
Currently, biomass is one of the most used resources in the world and its potential as an energy source is increasing. Thanks to the fact that little by little the population is becoming aware of the enormous impact we have on the environment, renewable energies such as biomass are becoming increasingly relevant as non-polluting alternatives.
The term 'biomass' has several meanings: on the one hand, it refers to the organic matter produced by living beings, such as wood from trees, shells of nuts, bones of some fruit or animal excrement, among others. . Likewise, when we refer to biomass as a source of energy, we are talking about the process that organic matter carries out to produce energy, better known as bioenergy, which is finally transformed into fuel.
Although there are several procedures for obtaining energy from biomass, at Capitan Denim we opt for direct combustion, by burning pistachio shells, almonds, olive pits or peaches, depending on the season, in order to generate energy. thermal and electrical equipment that puts all the machinery of our factory into operation.
Biomass boilers are not only eco-efficient, but they are also more economical since they represent a great saving in spending compared to traditional boilers. Among the pros of biomass as a source of renewable energy, they highlight that it converts waste into resources, that it respects the environment and does not pollute, that it obtains the same result as other energies at a lower price and that it collaborates with forest cleaning. Everything is advantages!
As an industry, we are aware of the impact we have on the environment, but from the beginning we have been clear about the responsibility that this entails, and for this reason, for years we have been working with biomass supported by solar energy to start up our factory. We are convinced that renewables are the way to go, and you, have you already realized it?
