Today, bioenergy is one of the most important energy sources in the world. It is an effective, carbon-neutral, but above all renewable, energy source with the ability to create numerous job opportunities. A modern bioenergy facility with a fully automated burner, storage tank and ash removal system means trouble-free daily operation. Reliability is extremely high, servicing operations for ash removal are required only twice a year and take around 10 minutes each. By investing in a bioenergy facility, you can make savings of up to 80%.

Complete Heating Plant Supplier
SWEBO Bioenergy AB develops, produces and markets environmentally friendly and carbon neutral Bioenergy systems for larger residential houses, industry facilities, and local shared heating plants.
The company specializes in the production and installation of prefabricated district heating plants, and products designed for efficient combustion of unrefined biofuels, so-called 'waste fuels'. SWEBO Bioenergy offer systems for all types of solid fuels, sizes from 50 kW to 10 MW.
Bioenergy systems for every need
Our bioenergy system includes everything from pellets, chips and wood briquettes to more difficult fuels such as horse manure and slaughter waste. You can either invest in one of these or combine different energy systems. We take your considerations and needs into account so that we can supply precisely what you require, depending on your budget and the level of comfort you desire. We have the biggest range available, and can meet even the most exacting requirements.
Did you know that more than 25% of Sweden's total energy consumption comes from renewable biofuel? The majority is made up of by-products from the timber and forestry industry such as waste liquor from the pulp industry, harvesting residue (branches and tops) from felling, and material that is unsuitable for timber or pulpwood. Waste from sawmills can also be used as biofuel, e.g. sawdust and bark. Sawdust is compressed to form pellets or briquettes.
What is bioenergy?
Bioenergy is energy obtained from biofuels, which according to the Swedish Standard, are 'fuels which are derived from biomass or peat. The fuel may have undergone chemical processing or alteration, and been used for another purpose'. According to the same standard, biomass is 'material of biological origin which has either not, or only slightly, been chemically altered'.
Biofuels can be classified into different subgroups. Classification is usually according to origin:
Wood fuel is wood raw materials from forests, which has not undergone chemical processing. This includes felling waste - branches and tops - resulting from felling of timber and pulpwood. Sawdust and bark from sawmills and the paper and pulp industries are waste products that can also be used as fuel, either unrefined or refined into pellets and briquettes. Waste wood can also be used as wood fuel.
Waste liquor is another major by-product from the pulp industry. It is formed when wood chips are cooked to produce paper pulp. Waste liquor contains organic compounds which can be burnt to recover energy and chemicals. With the help of new techniques for gasifying liquor, motor fuel can also be manufactured using this process.
Agri-fuels come from agriculture. Energy forest (Salix), energy grass, hemp, straw and grain for heating or producing ethanol are some examples. Other examples include rapeseed or other vegetable oils for producing biodiesel, or for burning, as well as pasture and other plants for biogas.
Biofuel comes from organic waste. Burning waste generates heat and electricity. Biogas from sewage treatment plants and landfill gas can also be used for this purpose.
Peat fuel is made from peat, a partially broken down organic material which is found in bogs and drained peat land. In Sweden, peat is classed as slowly renewable.
Biofuel can also be classified according to its state:
...or according to its application, such as biofuel for:
- electricity production
The use of bioenergy as a source for heating properties, companies or industrial facilities has been an economical option for a long time. With the current technology and efficiency levels on the most up-to-date systems, maintenance operations have been reduced to a minimum and reliability is extremely high.
Heating plants with flexible fuel choices
Another major reason to choose bioenergy as your only heating source, is that it gives you great flexibility when choosing the type of fuel. An electric boiler or heat pump relies on electricity, and the electricity cannot be changed to another source, no matter however expensive it becomes, as is the case with biofuel. Modern burners can be quickly and easily converted or upgraded to use cheaper or more efficient fuels. This means a more secure future when choosing both burners and material, as the boiler itself is a highly efficient heat consumer which can be used by various types of burner.
