The heating of residential and industrial buildings is necessary for their normal function in the winter period of the year (these are the months from October to April). To meet its energy needs in many countries are planning a more rational use of energy and the development of renewed energy sources (RES) to replace part of the fossil fuels. The biomass is organic matter of biological origin, which can be used as an energy source. Tobacco is grown in weak soils (mountain and semi-mountain areas) and in non-irrigated conditions. Statistically is not specified the mass of tobacco stems, as well as its energy potential. After retraction of the foliage, the stems remain on the field until next year. The stems of the tobacco plantations are proving to be a serious energy source, because the calorific value and the quantities and qualities of this biomass remain unexplored. The article presents the possibilities of using the residue from tobacco production as an energy source for heating.
