Palser is currently undertaking an investment project, known as “Introduction of New Products into the International Market through added value and use of wasted heat energy”.
This investment aims to provide the company with the capacity to produce pellets (from sawdust and wood chips) with high environmental performance, free of chemicals and with increased energy efficiency. The other project goal is to manufacture heat-treated wood in the form of boards and rounds, by using the heat energy released in the process of biomass burning.
Palser obtained approval for the application submitted to the Thematic Operational Programme for Factors of Competitiveness, pursuant to the terms of Notice of Tender no. 02/SI/2012, under the Regulations of the Innovation Incentive Programme. Contract no. 2012/26558 provides for a total investment of €3,695,451.67 and a refundable incentive of €1,822,052.63. The investment period for this project is between 15/12/2012 and 14/12/2014.
This investment project shows a very positive assessment, not only because the planned investments have been carried out within the deadline, because we managed to fully complete the project until 28/11/2014, but also because we managed to obtain the respective licensing.
It is also worth mentioning that the total amount of the investment made (€ 3,744,032.41) exceeded the amount originally planned by close to 13 %, being this deviation, for more, mainly due to the acquisition of machinery and equipment with more recent models, better suited to the project objectives.
This is a QREN (NSRF) initiative, with EU/FEDER financing, through COMPETE - Competitiveness Factors Operational Programme.
