Available biomass potential

The Municipality of Lekenik is covered with forests, where the common oak is dominant in the lowland areas (valleys) and beech in the mountainous areas. The wood of the mostly state-owned forests is used for for heating (firewood), as a building material and material for making furniture. Private forests are exploited by their owners, with the necessary consent and control of the Croatian Forest Administration (Forest Office Lekenik), mainly for heating (firewood). The municipality has a great potential in the production of woody biomass.

The existing wood-based industries in the municipality can also provide woody biomass from residues (“Zec Promet”, Elgrad Ltd. lekenik, Eduro ie. Klizi Ltd, Interijer Color Ltd…). It is also possible to engage the Croatian Forest Administration, Forest office Lekenik and other smaller entities in cutting and selling firewood.

Motivation of the village to become a BioVill target village

The village Lekenik has some public-law institutions (kindergarten, school, health center, etc.) which are situated in a relatively small area. That opens the possibility to operate a central biomass plant with the least possible transmission and distribution losses. With the establishment of a biomass plant, public buildings will become completely supplied with heat and power from renewables. In addition, households throughout the village could also be connected.

Additional benefits will be achieved through the increased quality of life, environment preservation as well as energy and money savings. Furthermore, the manufacturing sector will be activated as well as the agricultural sector that will benefit through the investments in the production of biomass and cultivation of energy crops.

We use energy from our environment – let us become BioVill !
