Garc√≠a Forestal corporate Group has set up, through its subsidiary WOOD CHIPS GALICIA S.L.U., a new project aimed to generate added value to wood, by energy use as biomass for heating production.
Giving response to the growing demand of a new market is behind the last aim of this project, as result of an increase on heating facilities using forest biomass as fuel, either on the residential or tertiary sectors, even industrial.
