USE OF ENERGY WILLOW FOR THE PRODUCTION OF ENERGY IN THE PODKARPACKIE PROVINCE
Keywords: energy willow, energy production and use of biomass, energy plantations
The paper presents an analysis of surveys conducted in companies using willow Salix Viminalis for energy production in the Podkarpacie province, it shows that companies are interested in the production of energy from biomass. The use of willow as a renewable energy source for the production of energy from biomass is a very good solution. The respondents claim that insufficient number of producers of willow, and thus, insufficient amounts of product delivered, is a barrier, inhibiting the development of their companies. To increase the amount of biomass purchased from farmers, the companies intend to encourage biomass producers to keep and expand existing plantations by awarding them permanent contracts to provide energy willow. All companies prefer biomass in the form of wood chips, but are aware of the lack of appropriate harvesting machinery and drying equipment. These factors affect the quality and price of wood chips, which is quite high from the viewpoint of manufacturers.
