Biomolkerei Biedermann: closing the CO2 cycle with woodchips
Heating with wood is CO2 neutral as trees require energy from sunlight and carbon dioxide (CO2) to grow. This energy and the CO2 are stored in the wood and released as heat when it is burned, resulting in the emission of only as much CO2 as the tree took from the environment to grow.
The founder of Molkerei Biedermann (founded in 1974), Pius Biedermann, was not only an organic pioneer, he also wanted to produce highly sustainable products. He took an important step towards this goal at the turn of the millennium by switching to woodchips as an energy source. Thanks to this change, some 600 fewer tonnes of CO2 are emitted every year.
We purchase the woodchips for our heating direct from the local community of Bischofszell. This CO2-neutral energy source enables us to avoid some 600 tonnes of CO2 emissions each year, while the short transport distances are another plus.
