15h00   The Wood Heating Certificate CBQ+

The wood pellet heating has solid advantages because it is an ecological, economical, comfortable, efficient, local heating mode. It meets the users expectations who are ever more interested in renewable energy. That is why the number of pellet appliances is progressing constantly. The  threshold of 800,000 homes should be exceeded in 2018! The wood pellet heating meets also and especially today’s challenges in terms of energetic independence, air quality, and also in terms of the struggle against energetic precariousness.

Consequently, the wood pellet market continues its upward curve. The self-sufficiency model is continuing and strengthening as production plants have the capacity to meet the significant growth in future consumption.
