Before the crisis, we must have imagination and focus on diversification of economic activity of the municipality with future projects. Natural Fire Company of Yecla has chosen alternative energy and has already gained international recognition. Recently, he has been honored with an award for a system that increases performance and reduces combustion time cleaning biomass burners.
This yeclana company is engaged in the manufacture of biomass burners, so has earned the award for technological innovation in Bioenergy International Expo-Feria de Valladolid. The company has developed a new system for extracting burned grill for the back burner biomass, which makes the combustion performance is much higher, and reduce the time in the removal and cleaning of the ash generated, because they no longer have to remove the burner, and any user can perform this task.
The manager of Natural Fire, Perfect Forte Jiménez explains that for these burners bones polycombustible olive, almond shells and pistachio are used, and even pine cones. Burners that are already adapting to all kinds of industrial and domestic heating. Forte argues that "a pound of pellet, which is the most expensive type of biomass market, worth about 20 euro cents and generates around 4.5 kilowatts of power, and a liter of heating oil produces 10 kilowatts power, but its price exceeds euro per liter, making a difference and saving to the same equivalence would be 60%, which could be higher with other biomass that are cheaper. " This new alternative energy system is attached to the environmental issue, "since the combustion of biomass produces no greenhouse gases or CO2 emissions have, so it does not pollute or generate odors."
Forte indicates that the sector is in bakeries where it is being used, because they are getting a very important cost savings in energy, which is already above 60% on fuel traditional and diesel. Forte says that "a bakery with a monthly consumption of 1,400 euros in oil, you can get great savings. This type of machine you get to repay in a short time, hence being implemented so quickly in this sector, "says the entrepreneur yeclano. Right now, one of their machines to be used in a public school in Yecla to reduce the economic costs of heating the school.
The existence of biomass is also secured to the company, because it is precisely in the town of Yecla region and two factories are engaged in the development of pellet and crushed organic matter like shells of almonds and pistachios, olive stones and pine cones.
