E.E: What are the news about your products? TATANO: In the period of lockdown due to the pandemic, we imagined the future of eco-sustainable heating and thus conceived a line of boilers that we consider the Future of biomass heating. The BLUEVO: a boiler with new combustion technology with an exclusive patent developed by Tatano. The new range of BLUEVO pellet boilers represents the latest dimension of gasification technique for pellets and is the first Italian boiler to have reduced the minimum emission levels allowed by law and to have exceeded the maximum levels of efficiency reaching 98.5 % yield. It enjoys all the tax breaks and state grants in many countries With the new BLUEVO technology, Tatano achieves its goal: heating without CO2 and particulates. In a historical era in which global warming and air pollution have become inclement, the overall goal to protect the planet is to minimize CO2 emissions and improve air quality. Our Blu Evo is a top solution for the heating of the future and that is confirmed by the Awards “Prize2021” for design and technology, which crowns our constant commitment and we are very proud of it Among the advantages that the product allows to achieve there are: A lower consumption of pellets thanks to the fuel technique and an innovative combustion technique, CO2 neutral, which reduces the emissions of fine dust to a minimum.

The range of pellets and wood chips one of the most chosen by the market in which we operate. Pellets are an easily available and clean fuel, while wood chips, especially self-produced ones, are an immediate local resource.

The use of zero km fuels therefore present in the local area was one of the great challenges that Tatano launched on the market. Today, more than ever, the issue of energy supply becomes a crucial issue and emphasizes the importance of using local resources for heating such as wood, exhausted olive husk, woodchips from the cleaning of the woods or waste from the agricultural supply chain E.E: What are the most innovative products marketed?
