Linz AG: inauguration of Asten’s biomass heating plant
The Linz AG’s new biomass district heating plant in Asten has been brought into operation. Two biomass boilers, offering a total installed capacity of 6 MW, and a 150,000 l buffer storage system provide district heating to numerous municipal buildings and around 1,200 homes. The approximate 6,800 tonnes of woods chips that are required annually are supplied by local producers. In addition, one fifth of the residual heat produced by the region’s water treatment plant is fed into the system.
