4 Wood from windbreak – almost worthless for industrial use - but very valuable as heating fuel 1 m³ windbreakage wood = 200 litre heating oil
5 The motivation for buying a biomass heating is the short pay back time Basic conditions Consumption 10.000 liter/year of heating oil Costs of heating oil 0,60 € per liter Investment for € 18.000 woodchip heating Pay back time ~ 5 years Consumption 125 m³ / year of woodchips Costs of woodchips € 16 / m³ € 6.000 € 2.000 € 4.000
9 We are heading for a major production gap! Production Gap Capacity Tendency of demand in Europe Delivery time = several months
10 Why are Austrian producers hesitating to export to North America? Even longer delivery times at the home market Different law system Different standards (ASME, CSA...)
11 How to distribute? Establish a huge network of partners. Use free capacities in automotiv industry. Who should produce? What´s the business idea? Bring the Austrian biomass technology to NA and spread it out from there all over the world.
12 What am I looking for in Canada? Partners for the network
