Wood gas plant in South Tyrol: Heat and electricity from wood briquettes.

In Muehlbach, South Tyrol in Italy, a manufacturer of glued laminated timber (glulam) uses a biomass cogeneration plant to generate electricity and heat at low cost.

Our wood gas plant for a glulam manufacturer in Muehlbach/ South Tyrol runs in continuous operation day after day, year after year. The special feature: The plant is not fired with wood chips, but with wood briquettes.

This required extensive research and testing in advance. When generating process heat, the reliability of the equipment is particularly important so as not to interrupt the ongoing production process.
