Project Details

Title: Biomass boilers used for heat generation in Serres Coopératives de Guyenne’s greenhouses Project Identifier: 3692-6207

Project Description

Biomass as a fuel is considered an emitter of biogenic CO2, which means that its combustion will not affect the total atmospheric CO2 if the biomass was obtained in a sustainable way. These emissions are hence not accounted for as GHG emissions in the quantification. On the other hand, the combustion of used oil emits considerable amounts of CO2 emissions, which are not considered biogenic. By choosing biomass over commonly employed used oil, Serres Guyenne is contributing to reducing GHG emissions.
