Our project team during the multi-year development of energy-generating projects from renewable sources has maximally exploited the potential of implementation zones with a negligible impact on the environment. In accordance with our principles we have created a viable model that through this project group ensures sustainability and competitiveness of the overall concept of integrated projects.
The Solar Farm is in Batina, a harbor village on the right bank of the Danube in Baranja – eastern Croatia.The average annual irradiation of the solar radiation in the continental Croatian county (Osječko-Baranjska County) ranges between 1.25 and 1.30 MWh / m2, while in the Germany it is 0.9-1.1 MWh / m2.Along with our German partner Cleverr-tech consult Ltd. and in cooperation with the manufacturer of equipment Lambotec GmbH, we use the latest technology (photovoltaics nano coating – thinfilm) to produce electricity from the sun’s energy.
The significant potential of renewable energy sources in Baranja (location of projects) is biomass energy. Primary forest wood biomass obtained by collecting, secondary agricultural waste and green biomass obtained by maintenance of embankments and melioration channels.
The basic principle of biomass gasification system is to convert agriculture and forestry products and wood processing remains (including rick husks, wood powder, branches, corn straws, wheat straws, fruit shells, corncobs and etc.) into combustible gas . It is then used as fuel in gas engine to generate electricity. Biomass gasification successfully conquers the disadvantages of biomass, such as low flammability and wide diversity. Biomass gasification system is characteristic of small land requirement and environment friendly. It’s one of the most effective way of biomass utilization.
Project “Fuel for Renewable Energy” provides elements of a circular economy system that combines material, financial, transport and energy loopholes, reduces raw material, energy and energy shortages, with an innovative and unique concept, rational organization and efficient management, rapid and the efficient performance of all services, ensuring the user-friendly cooperation and connectivity of the user, functioning in full independence ensures the users are extremely efficient and competitive.zation.
Primary source of biomass – Forest biomass
The area of planned activities, the collection of biomass, represents the undisturbed floodplain between the Danube River and the Danube. Land of 3,000 ha is owned by the Republic of Croatia and land is managed by the Public Company “Hrvatske šume”. Long-term biomass exploitation contract of 14 years. Estimated surface area for industrial biomass collection by the technique of regular, picking, finishing, tillage, preparation and progeny is 2,400 ha. The mixed deciduous forests of wood (ash tree, oak, chestnut, linden, hornbeam, maple, birch, lime, grapevine, maple, birch) and Bushes (hazel and hawthorn) for planned exploitation give an annual production of 60,000 tons per year.
Secondary source of biomass – Green biomass
Secondary source of biomass is the “Green biomass” obtained by the grass cutting of defensive embankments, as well as the maintenance of melioration structures, channels in the system of “Croatian Waters”. Target area activities are in a radius of 10 kilometers relative to the location of the project. “Croatian Waters” annually announce a Public Procurement Contest, about maintenance works. Potentially there is no supplier who can offer lower prices due to the proximity of activity that reduces labor costs and equipment mobilization. By negotiating this business, double profits, both work-related revenues and biomass, are achieved as a by-product of the maintenance that has been left at the cutting site in the past.
Tertiary source of biomass – Green biomass
Traditional agricultural production is among the most important branches of the economy in Osijek-Baranja County. The total agricultural area in the county amounts to 212,013 hectares, of which 201,705 hectares are used as horticultural areas.In the structure of the sown areas predominate grains sown on 63%, oilseed at 20.1%, fodder plants at 9.4%, sugar beet on 6.0%, vegetables on 1%, tobacco on 0.1%, flowers, aromatic plants and remaining at 0.3% of the surface.The tertiary source of biomass is waste, ie residues from agricultural production.
Plant breeding – Paulownia
The primary role of planting Paulownia is to protect the complex for the cultivation of organic grains and vegetables. Complex is protected by an outer ring, dense planted Paulownia tree (Paulownia tomentosa) which is a deciduous tree from the family Paulowniaceae. The protective zone is 60-120 meters wide, and until the beginning of production, for seven years will reach the height of 20 meters and the trunk volume between 40 and 50 centimeters. Primary role of protective the zone is preventing free bringing of the pollen through wind from hybrid or GMO cultures from the environment.A secondary role within the protective forest band is also a series of different protective belts in accordance with ecological sustainability production. Mechanical barrier (fence) that prevents the passage of tiny and big wild animals.Due to the extremely rapid growth, the tertiary benefit of the Pouwlonia plantation is in the production of wood biomass and technical wood.
Plant breeding – Miscanthus giganteus
The energy plant has to fulfill several conditions: it must grow rapidly, do not drain too much soil and be usable for various purposes. All of these conditions are met by Miscanthus, a high-energy crop of tropical and subtropical regions of Asia and Africa. Miscanthus it is fuel of the future.Miscanthus giganteus – one of the most energetic plants of our time, with minimal engagement and enormous yields.Using pesticides is virtually unnecessary because the Miscanthus seedlings have no recorded fito and zoo enemies.Dry mass yields vary from to 7,000 kg / ha in the second year, and in the third year to 20,000 kg / ha. If the water content is 14%, it can be calculated with an average yield of 19,000 kg / ha.
