Biomass Powerplant Krnča

Share:

Your Italian pizza could possibly be baked in an oven, heated by burning wood from Slovakian Krnča.

The Krnča biomass power plant burns wood waste remaining from the fallen trees in order to produce electricity and heat. The heat production could be used for example to heat greenhouses, where cucumbers are grown all year round. Smaller pieces of wood are being exported perhaps to Italy to bake your pizza.

Krnča is a classic example of the full use of resources in electricity and heat production. Such sustainable management of natural resources leads to sustainable development.
