Biomass heating is more and more ecological

To contribute to protect the environment by completely eliminating combustion emissions and making biomass heating increasingly more ecological, practical, safe and convenient. This is our goal. We are working at it with exactitude, spreading a culture based on burning renewable energies because sustainability is part of a broader concept of environmental comfort. The healthier the environment, the safer the people.

Why burn wood (i.e. plants) instead of fossil fuels?

Nature knows how to keep our ecosystem in perfect health! In fact, thanks to chlorophyll photosynthesis, the Sun and plants ensure that the air we breathe contains the right amount of oxygen. Plants absorb carbon dioxide from the air (1) and use the carbon they need for their own growth while releasing oxygen that is essential for life and for the planet (2).

Wood is a renewable source of energy; fossil fuels, on the other hand, cannot be renewed which is why they are running out. Interestingly, the wood trees are made of is produced by photosynthesis. It is made of carbon (3). During correct combustion, carbon combined with the oxygen in the air produces the exact amount of carbon dioxide that is absorbed by a tree during its life cycle (4). On the other hand, when fossil fuels burn they release the carbon dioxide accumulated in the millions of years it has taken them to form, which increases the greenhouse effect.

Choosing to burn wood is therefore an “eco-responsible” choice for our planet: it pollutes less while offering uncompromising comfort.

This is also the first and foremost principle we abide by and we have made a sort of “agreement with nature” on it: a voluntary agreement with the Ministry for the Environment for the promotion of shared projects aimed at analysing, reducing and neutralising the impact on the climate of the production of wood biomass domestic heating systems.

1Chlorophyll photosynthesis: leaves absorb carbon dioxide from the atmosphere.
2They keep carbon, the nourishment they need to live and grow, and release oxygen that is indispensable for our lives.
3The wood that comes from trees is a product of photosynthesis and is composed of carbon.
4When wood is burnt in one of our fireboxes, the carbon contained in it combines with oxygen and, thanks to our dual combustion system, the same quantity of carbon dioxide that the tree subtracted from the atmosphere to produce the actual wood being burnt is released.
5Contrarily to what usually happens when fossil fuels are burnt, this combustion can be rightly said to have no impact on the environment at all. The quantity of CO2 produced in the firebox is equal to the amount of CO2 absorbed by the tree.
