For households, companies or public utility facilities situated in rural areas which would like to cut heating costs in a simple
manner, we offer EKOPAL biomass boilers. In contrast to stoves fired by fossil fuels, in our technology unprocessed and
readily available vegetal raw materials which constitute waste (e.g. straw) can be used as a cheap and environmentally sound fuel.
The EKOPAL technology is distinguished by the so-called “counter-current combustion system” applied in it, which ensures a correct straw gasification process and the combustion of the gas generated, and, as a result, it guarantees low carbon oxide (CO) content in the waste gases. The boiler has a preliminary straw gasification chamber, a chamber where the gas generated is burned and a pipe heat exchanger. Compared with competing solutions using coal combustion, this technology enables a substantial reduction in the emissions of pollutants, i.e. diminishing SO2 emissions by 88%, those of NO2 by 32% and those of CO by 79%. The air injected into the straw combustion chamber partly prevents dust from escaping from it and thus reduces its content in the waste gases.
An investment in the EKOPAL technology is completely cost-effective, both for users who have their own straw and for those who buy it on the market. In certain cases, the investment can pay back even in two years.
Since 1993 we have already manufactured several thousand biomass boilers and developed a number of solutions enabling heat generation from cereal, maize and rapeseed straw, energy willow, wood, wood chips, sawdust and other types of biomass. As a result, several boiler types have been developed to meet different operational requirements and power demand levels. They
operate both in Poland and abroad, e.g. in Scotland, Denmark, China, Romania and Russia.
Advantages of the technology:
- Reduced CO content in the waste gases.
- A substantial reduction in the emissions of gaseous pollutants into the air,
i.e. SO2 emissions reduced by 88%, NO2 by 32% and CO by 79%.
- Reduced dust content in the waste gases.
- An environmentally sound heat source using available raw materials and
