The third BioVill study tour took place from the 16th until the 18th of May 2017 in the southern and south-eastern part of Bavaria. It started with a visit of several bioenergy villages and initiatives in the Ebersberg county, south-east of Munich, went further to bioenergy initiatives in Steingaden and Kempten/Allgäu and later to the bioenergy village Wildpoldsried and ended with a presentation of the Bavarian company REHEAU (production of polymer pipes for heating networks) and the visit of the district heating network in Vatersdorf (Buch am Erlbach) in the north of Munich. Based on the recommendations given by the participants of the previous study tours, a main focus was put on the planning and installation of a heating grid. Due to the situation in the partner villages another priority was on wood based heating systems as well as on combined heat and power production from anaerobic digestion (biogas) and gasification (syngas).
