The aim of the Residue2Heat project is to develop competitive, residential boilers fuelled with ‘standardized’ FPBO produced from locally available biomass resources. Significant market potential exists in Europe for condensing, oil fuelled boilers achieving high efficiency and cost effectiveness. The introduction of these systems will reduce greenhouse gases, and importantly provide a boost to local economy by generating jobs on all levels and in different branches.
The impact expected from the Residue2Heat project includes the Integration of new knowledge on the combustion of FPBO in residential scale heaters between research institutes and manufacturing industry. With this new knowledge, innovative heating systems are developed, meeting de needs of European and global market. This will enhance innovation capacity, thus strengthening the competitiveness and growth of the European industry.
