New BAFA subsidy rates 2020!

The basis of the new BAFA grant funding is the development of a government incentive program for funding systems using renewable energy sources within the heating market. The guideline came into force on 01/01/2020.

A subsidy of 35% or even up to 45% for the purchase of a fully automatic wood chip heater from Heizomat is available on the scheme. A distinction is however made between private households and companies.

Meet the family...

We develop and produce fully automatic wood heating systems, professional wood chipping machines and more for the sustainable use of domestic resources.

Once the trees have been felled, the raw material must be processed quickly. For optimal value, this also applies to small wood, tree tops and wood waste.

All aspects are considered with regard to environmentally friendly heating with woodchips - including the efficient transport of the woodchips into the bunker.

Heizotruck power packs solve even the most demanding tasks, whether in the forest or in the field. We have models for forestry and agricultural use on offer.
