    Short description

    The high density of biomass heating plants in the district of Murau is a guarantee that regionally produced residual wood is recycled and for the most part used to produce thermal energy.

    Approx. 50 heating plants with a heating load of 40 KW to 10.000 KW have an estimated annual wood ash content of approx. 500 t (rough and fine ash). The current situation is very unsatisfactory, as most of the ash is deposited, which in some cases causes very high costs for the individual heating plant operators. Partial composting and direct spreading of the rough ash on grassland also takes place, but contamination and clumping are very problematic.

    The aim of this project is to examine meaningful exploitation possibilities and to develop and make the best possible use of proposals with regards to legal requirements, economic viability, feasibility for implementation and environmental impact.
