A documentary about the energy-crisis of the salt industry over the last centuries. The efficient utilization of biomass was an important cornerstone to accelerate the development of the salt industry in the municipality of Steinbach by the Attersee. The first wood scarcity in the 12th century made the locals inventive.
Today, the salt industry by the Attersee imports fossil fuels from abroad. With the help of the GRE DFB gasifier, local wood resources could be utilized for decentralized and sustainable energy production.
