Olive pits as an energy source for hotels

olive pits for fuel

Among the renewable energies we find that of biomass. The olive stone can serve as fuel to generate energy from biomass. Such is its efficiency in energy generation that hotels seeking to save electricity and establish themselves in the XNUMXst century with greater energy efficiency and better comforts are looking for it.

For hotels to be of good quality, they must not only offer good facilities but also a commitment to caring for and preserving the environment and energy sustainability. To do this, hotels must reduce their ecological footprint as much as possible.

Eco-friendly hotels

Hotels that seek to improve quality and offer good tourism opt for a gastronomy made with local products that help reduce the ecological footprint. If the dishes served in hotels do not require much packaging or transport, We will minimize CO2 emissions into the atmosphere and reduce the amount of waste we generate. In addition, we promote local commerce and promote the local economy.

For the hotel's energy generation, the olive stone is used as fuel since it has excellent characteristics due to its high density, humidity around 15% and a high calorific value. The generation of renewable energy through the use of olives as fuel causes a reduction in the consumption of diesel, propane or natural gas, which are more expensive and polluting.

The hotel may have a biomass plant that has a silo on the ground where about 40.000 kilos of dry and crushed bones can be stored. Once these bones are prepared, they go mechanically to the two boilers that are the ones that produce energy using the bones as fuel.

In this way we will generate renewable energy that contributes to reducing CO80 emissions by 2% and energy costs by 45% by substituting gas for the combustion of bone for sanitary water, heating and the set of heated swimming pools.
