-Threes are planted, cut after three years, processed into biomass obtaining not only cheap but energy efficient fuel - GIZ says emphasising that much more biomass can be got from willow than from corn grown at the same-size parcel.
Zrenjanin Heating Plant has been planning for several years to build a biomass boiler. But funds necessary for this are not available either in the Plant or the City, so one of the optional solution was PP partnership. It is not only the expensive boiler but also the necessary biomass quantity. In that regard the fast-growing tress could be useful.
He explains that this idea and the Study came out tf the wish of the local government to provide cheaper heating fro citizens. Other advantages include afforestation, and in time, soil quality improvement.
- Public Communal Company “City Heating Plant“ has already prepare PPP project and its implementation could start even before planting since there are plenty of wood producers in Serbia.
