Description

The facilities offered by Ecoenergy are combined heat and power plants, where biomaterial is combusted in order to generate electricity and heat with low environmental impact. On the northern hemisphere, in particular in Sweden, the surplus heat is used for heating purposes through district heating systems, but traditionally there has been no applications exploiting this energy in warmer regions. Ecoenergy offers facilities using the surplus heat to clean water, desalinate water or produce cooling. This makes biofuel heat and power plants economically feasible on more markets, which further benefits the environment. In addition, clean water can be produced to a low cost.

Advantages

Biofuel replaces  fossil fuel
