Energy exploitation of residues from the wood industry - Maderas de María company
In Regumiel de la Sierra, in the heart of the Pinareas region in Spain, the company Maderas de María, has made investments recently to increase its energy efficiency and its wood drying processes.
The sawmill decided to invest in a biomass boiler and a drying system exploiting the residues from its own manufacturing in the most efficient way possible. The wood residues from its manufacturing plant are now used as fuel for the boilers that are generating energy for the plant. It is a brilliant example of a circular production process that has multiple benefits; it lowers the production costs making the company more competitive inside the industry, it reduces the waste from the production as well as the emissions of CO2 in the atmosphere.
