Oleaginous biomasses

The biomass for energy purposes originates not only from forest and vegetal biomasses but also from the use of oleaginous plants. Vegetal oils and wastes of the plant pressing are one of the main types of biomass.

On the earth there are more than 4,000 species of plants from which it is possible to produce vegetal oils, mainly drawn from the seeds of such plants. The result is an immense deposit of vegetal oils with extremely varied composition and energy efficiency.

The produced seeds are collected, stocked in silos and afterwards treated in pressing plants. The vegetal oil produced is used in vegetal oil cogeneration plants that generate energy with countless environmental, energetic and economic benefits.

Through the agro-energetic production chain you can safeguard a positive relationship between environmental sustainability and industrial profit.

The European Community has established that the consumption of biofuels must reach the percentage of10% of the total consumption of fuel within 2020: therefore, the exploitation of this biomass opens new opportunities for agriculture, exploiting the already consolidated technology in a boosting normative context.
