Bioenergie Pischelsdorf – Pioneers of biomass since 1989

Nearly 50% of the Kulmland is covered by forest. These areas are predominantly cultivated and sustained by the farmers and foresters from Pischelsdorf am Kulm and the surrounding area. The renewable raw material wood - especially thinning residues and weakwood - is processed into wood chips and the resulting heat is delivered directly to the houses via the well-developed district heating network of the cooperative “Bioenergie Pischelsdorf”.

The cooperative “Bioenergie Pischelsdorf”, founded in 1989, is one of the pioneers in biomass. When the biomass heating plant is rebuilt, the cooperative “Bioenergie Pischelsdorf” relies on the sophisticated and long-lasting technology of AGRO Forst & Energietechnik. The heat requirement is covered by 2 AGRO biomass boilers with a heat output of 2,500 kW and 800 kW. Thus, the “Bioenergie Pischelsdorf” contributes significantly to an increase in regional value added and decisively reduces dependency on fossil fuels.

 Since wood burns CO²-neutrally, currently approx. 2,500 t CO² are saved in the region, which has a significant impact on our environment.
