Wood is a renewable energy source, that substitutes itself to the energies whose resources are limited (oil, gas, coal).Thus, the use of energy-wood is contributing strongly to the fight against the climatic warming (greenhouse effect) because contrary to the other energies, it recycles the carbon dioxide (CO2) in the atmosphere, which is occluded by the forests.
Energy-wood represents an excellent increase of all the by-products and wastes of the wood field. Finally, this resource takes part in the rational management of our forests and thus to the quality of the landscape and the maintenance of the climatic and hydrological balance.
Wood as an energy is a competitive fuel. Moreover, its price is not subjected to the fluctuations of the international prices and fuel.
