Detailed description of the practice
Description of the practice: 
The private company KOMBI traditionally produced boilers for household use, its primary fuel being oil. Over the last years, the company expanded its product variety to biomass boilers,in order to respond to an increasing market need. The objective thus was to produce biomass boilers,able to consume as fuel a variety of solid fuels. Indeed, the company produces today many boilers covering a wide range of biomass fuels, such as firewood, pellets, agriculture residues etc.It also has the possibility of producing co-firing boilers, i.e. boilers that simultanesously burn biomass fuels with other solid fuels, such as lignite, xylite, etc. In this way, the company maintains an adequate flexibility which adequately covers the needs of its clients. The production is made locally and the company produces added value for the local economy. The products that THERMODYNAMIKI S.A. is manufacturing are:Steel solid fuel and oil/gas boilers, Energy Fireplaces, Solid fuel warm air generators, Complete heating units, Biomass burning steel boilers and Steel oil tanks.In all of its operations THERMODYNAMIKI is practicing the quality assurance system ISO 9001:2000 and all the company products are produced by the EU standards EN and CE certified.
Lessons learnt from the practice: 
The implentation of this practice has proved to be very successful, as demonstrated by both internal and external to the company factors: for instance, the company has 7 permanent job places. In addition, the rising exporting activity of THERMODYNAMIKI is providing to the company the ability to enter in new national markets. The exports are spread in countries of:South East Europe (Albania, Bulgaria, Kosovo, Serbia, FYROM),East Europe (Moldavia, Poland, Romania, Russia),Central Europe (Austria, Germany), South Europe (Cyprus),and finally in countries outside Europe, Afghanistan and Irak. The company in Ptolemaida performs also laboratory research and testing of boilers aiming at the development of new products and the increase of energy efficiency of boilers combined with low emissions.

The Interregional Cooperation Programme INTERREG IVC, financed by the European Union’s Regional Development Fund, helps Regions of Europe work together to share experience and good practice in the areas of innovation, the knowledge economy, the environment and risk prevention. EUR 302 million is available for project funding but, more than that, a wealth of knowledge and potential solutions are also on hand for regional policy-makers.
