Biomass heating

Heating with wood chips is CO₂-neutral environmentally friendly

Compared to other biomass and especially fossil fuels, wood chips are considered to be the cheapest form of heating. Only domestic waste wood is used to produce the chips. Thanks to a high degree of automation, wood chips can be produced cheaply and with little effort.

The farmers can then use the wood chips to heat their own homes and supply other facilities – a win-win situation. Thanks to the advanced technology of the HARGASSNER wood chip boilers, you can heat cheaply and energy-efficiently – with the highest efficiency and energy class A+.
