The Center for Architecture and Efficient Energy Technology (ZETA) at Bremen Higher School and the company LEDA Werk GmbH & Co. KG Boekhoff & Co. have entered into a cooperation agreement for the development of a burner designed for the virtually emission-free combustion of wood pellets.
This requires very little power to operate and is particularly suitable for use in passive or low energy homes.
Wood pellets are a relatively unknown fuel in our regions, but have been used for a long time in Scandinavia and Austria. Wood is a carrier of renewable and particularly ecological energy.
When burning wood pellets, the amount of CO2 that emerges is one that has been absorbed by trees during their growth, which closes the loop. The ovens pellets thus represent an opportunity for economic and ecological heating could be installed in passive houses.
The company innoWi GmbH has initiated a patent application in Germany as well as in many other European countries.
