Abstract

Finkbeiner KG has been operating a sawmill and planing mill at its Steinbis site for many years, where approx. 180,000 solid cubic metres of wood are processed per year. This corresponds to about 30 truckloads per day. A combined heat and power plant was commissioned in 2015. The combined heat and power plant (CHP) is fed with chips from the sawmill and supplies up to 1.4 MW of electrical power. The electricity produced is fed into the grid.
