MODERN FUELS, in addition to its own production of solid biofuels, promotes technological solutions for biomass utilisation on a local basis. As is known, in order for the neutral (or more precisely tending to zero) biomass carbon dioxide (CO2) balance to be valid, it is necessary to collect biomass raw materials at close proximity to a biofuel production plant. For the same purpose, it is also advisable to distribute the ready products on a local basis. In the case of large-scale biofuel production units which need raw material transfer from distant locations and which use multiple channels of distribution to sell their products, the neutral CO2 cycle is significantly disturbed, since it is necessary to take into account the emission impact of transportation vehicles for raw materials and end products. Therefore, the more remote dispersion in relation to the production centre exhibit the cycles of feedstock supply and of distribution networks, the greater the burden on environmental balance emissions of CO2.
Ultimately, the distant transport burdens both the environment and the financial budget of final customer despite the economies of scale achieved through production units of bigger range. MODERN FUELS, through its engineering department MODERN FUELS ENGINEERING, advocates the establishment of small and flexible local units for biofuel production, which would collect feedstock in collaboration with members of local community, would produce solid biofuels at a viable production capacity and would distribute the finished products to meet the requirements of local community again, thereby providing new jobs at all stages of the local supply chain.
MODERN FUELS ENGINEERING interacts and cooperates with reliable international partners in manufacture of suitable production equipment for biomass utilisation in order to contribute towards this direction.
