CO2 Emissions

One of the main questions regarding biomass-powered thermoelectric plants relates to emissions.
CO2 is the most harmful greenhouse gas in that it is the main cause of the greenhouse effect due to human activities. However, as defined in the UNFCCC (United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change), biomass is a neutral source with respect to CO2 emissions since the CO2 released during combustion is equal to that absorbed during the life of the plant through photosynthesis. This is why Renovo’s biomass plants contribute to economic and energy development in pursuit of decarbonisation.

In addition, compared to a traditional domestic heating system, a biomass thermoelectric plant has different, lower emissions factors.
First of all, an industrial plant functions in a controlled manner, optimised for maximum combustion efficiency, which results in reduced emissions for the same energy generated.
In addition, an industrial plant, as opposed to a domestic plant, presents systems for reducing emissions. These systems include, for example, bag filters, which have dust capture efficiencies of 98-99%.

Emission Limits

In addition, Renovo’s plants do not merely observe the emissions limits established by specific legislation, but are far more efficient and virtuous, since they comply with emissions limits far below the legally mandated levels.
