Energy transition and renewable energy

Implementation period:
2023 – 2024



1. An ecological transition and energy autonomy
· HPCI®, a 100% renewable energy biofuel, replaces oil, gas, and coal.
2. An ecological and efficient industrial project
· No rubbish, no noise, no smell.
· Industrial heat that can be shared locally with other industries.
· A significant contribution to the achievement of France’s environmental objectives: reduction of greenhouse gas emissions, reduction of fossil fuel imports.
3. A circular economy. Creation of jobs that cannot be relocated.
· Valorisation of residues that are not used by the forest-wood sector
· Local industrial, logistics and forestry jobs that cannot be relocated.
· Commercialisation to local stakeholders in the territory (heating networks, dedicated boiler rooms, industrial companies)
