ROVER 08 is an Albanian company located in Fier, specializing in the production of Styrofoam.
ROVER 08 ran its boiler with Mazut in order to produce the steam required in its industrial processes.
We started out by conducting an on-site survey at the Styrofoam production factory, where we got introduced to the company’s industrial processes, location specifics and steam requirements. After collecting all the relevant information, we customised a solution designed to meet ROVER 08’s steam demands where we covered everything from the right combustion technology, fuel deposit, installation and maintenance plan, ecological filter etc.
ROVER 08 changed its combustion technology from mazut-fired boiler to a biomass-fired boiler in 2018 with a capacity of 4 Ton steam/hour, and has since been using our product: dried crude olive cake as a solid bio-fuel in order to produce steam. Clients that switch from mazut-fired boilers to biomass-fired boilers using dried crude olive cake, have reduced their thermic energy expenses by 50%.
ROVER 08 is another successful project, amongst many, evidencing that businesses requiring steam benefit from great financial savings by using dried crude olive cake as a solid fuel, instead of using fossil fuels. Dried crude olive cake is several times less expensive than mazut, and easily much more economically advantageous than LPG, which is the cheapest fossil fuel in Albania.
Furthermore, unlike fossil fuels, dried crude olive cake is a renewable source of energy.
By using dried crude olive cake instead of Mazut, ROVER 08 has prevented a net rise of 3,182 Ton CO2 emissions per year into the atmosphere!
