Biomass boilers for the canning industry

The canning industry, whether for vegetables or fish, is characterised by a high energy demand.

The existence of a wide variety of autoclaves for processes such as sterilisation means that they require significant amounts of industrial steam.

For the most part, canneries use natural gas or oil-fired boilers to service their production lines due to the ease of access to these fuels and the compactness of these types of boilers.

However, recent health and geopolitical events have made fuel prices highly volatile. In addition, the expansion of activities subject to CO2 emission allowances will increasingly pass on costs to companies that do not monitor their carbon footprint.

Therefore, the option of a biomass boiler is one of the most cost-effective alternatives for the canning industry due to its short payback period.
