42% of South Tyrol is covered with forest. The forest is an habitat and affords protection, it is a place of peace, of wilderness, but also an important economic factor. It is the source of a clean, sustainable energy- the indigenous raw material wood.
After the sun, wood is the oldest source of energy known to mankind. Unlike fossil raw materials such as coal and crude oil, wood is Co2- neutral and renewable
Biomass- when the chips are down
The annual growth of timber in South Tyrol is approx, 815.000 solid meters,of which only half is used. That’s why it makes sense to use wood to generate heat as this help us manage our forests and removing old trees serves the purpose of mankind and forest. Wood is the raw material of the future!
South Tyrol utilises its wood resources
The forest has always played an important role in South Tyrol. In the last decade for energy production, too. Since 1994, thirty-two district heating plants running on biomass have been built in South Tyrol. With others in planning. The Pustertal valley resort is blazing the trail, with 12 communities already using district heating. One of the biggest heating plant was extended in 1998, and Innichen has now also linked up to the distant heating grid.
The Toblach- Innichen district heating plant generates heat using wood chips. The Orc module- the first in South Tyrol and the biggest in Europe- generates electrical energy. The combustion of biomass in the boiler generates heat that heats up the thermal oil. This energy drives a turbine and a generator creates electricity. Thanks to a combination of electric filter and flue gas emissions are kept to an absolute minimum. The cooling process in the whole electricity generation process creates hot water that can be supplied as distant heating to the two Dobbiaco and S. Candido Municipalities.
From wood chips to thermal and electrical energy
See it, hear it, feel it, understand it….
The visitor’s display in the new building of the Toblach- Innichen district heating plant offers visitors an insight into the process of generating electrical and thermal energy using biomass
