Project description

The country side community of Alvitas was lent the former building of Alvitas library for community needs. The building was not used for some time, cold, with outdated boiler and thus had very limited use. Biomass boiler was adapted for the use of straw fuel due to the fact that rural community could afford to use straw, which was usually left in the fields. The aims of the project were reducing heating costs, reducing environment pollution and using the residues of straw for local farmers, which earlier was used in the fields. The project was performed together with buildings renovation project, where the old windows were replaces and some repairs done.
