Up-growing annually on a land biomass, it is the equivalent of 120 billion tons of coal, which several times exceeds the demand of the world's energy. The global, annual technical biomass potential is about 600 EJ (Exa-Joules).
The existing at present biomass potential is only a small part of that one, which is being used in a targeted manner. The main application is the production of food, next in line are the manufacture of paper and fibers. The use of biomass for energy purposes plays so far rather minor role, but thanks to the implementation of new technologies continues to grow.
Energy production from biomass is becoming more and more competitive in relation to its traditional sources. Excavation of coal, oil and gas is irreversibly exhausting their resources and entails many underestimated cost items incurred by the local societies and humanity. The mining industry, in addition contributes to environmental damage, being both a huge consumer of energy at all stages of its operation, starting from the preparation of the mining exploitation to the final phase of the energy media transport to places of their final consumption.
The dangers related to the mining production - a large number of accidents, occupational diseases and their consequences, preferential schemes for workers in the sector, form a series of cost imposed in fact on the whole of society. This is do not reflected in the prices of raw materials and energy produced from mining and therefore has a huge impact on the development of countries and the efficiency of economies.
The use of biomass as a substitute for traditional energy sources can reduce all those costs to a minimum. Potential of its production in Poland is amounting to tens of millions of tones, of which we can produce a significant part of electricity and heat, which is needed.
The use for this purpose of a poorer quality soils and wastelands allows for significant energy self-sufficiency and creating of new jobs, especially in regions with large-scale unemployment.
Production of energy at dissipated sources allows saving money by avoiding the cost of building new infrastructure related to the transmission of energy.
Our goal is to support the development of plantations and production of biomass and the development of technologies related to its production, processing and new applications as well.
- Development of new, effective methods of cultivation, development and improvement of the new varieties of energy crops.
- Development of high technology methods of production of the plants, including the production of in vitro methods.
- Expanding of our own section of the research & development, where work will be conducted and research carried out in the following areas:
~ Developing innovative design of mobile laboratories to industrial plant micro-propagation.
~ Development of technology, design and equipment serving the power generation at a rank of 20 - 100 kW for electricity production from biomass.
~ Preparing innovative applications of bio-char deriving from the processing of biomass and methods for obtaining from bio-char of high technology products.
We also develop activities in scope of processing of biomass through investment in the construction of its processing plant with a production capacity of 50,000 tons of biomass per year.
One of a very promising direction of our activity is the development of activities outside the country. In the area of Indonesia we create a production base and we will manage the land with a total area of 25,000 hectares. Part of the land - the area of 5000 hectares will be allocated for plantations of biomass, and other areas will be dedicated to the high productivity featured plantations of edible plants and fast-growing trees. The investments will bring us a source of solid, high income, which we will use to further dynamic development as well as for the potential to pay dividends to shareholders.
