Our versatile test facilities mean new solutions can be brought rapidly from the laboratory to industrial piloting and demonstration.
The world-leading piloting units for biomass gasification, fast pyrolysis and fluidised bed combustion are based on over 30 years of technology development and experience. Our expertise covers the entire chain from biomass logistics to various conversion technologies, and we can help you with feasibility studies, technology development and troubleshooting services.
Renewable and low emission energy or chemical recycling
Where there is a need to replace fossil fuels in energy production, then thermochemical conversion technologies can usually offer a solution.
Power and heat for different end users can be generated from biomass and waste feedstocks, and high-quality solid, liquid and gaseous fuels produced from many different and heterogenous biomass feeds.
We are developing new technologies for increasing energy efficiency, reducing emissions and adopting biomass in new applications, such as renewable feedstock for chemicals.
Fluidised bed combustion
VTT has unique facilities to study phenomena of fluidised bed and grate firing processes. The experimental installation has been used to various R&D subjects as well as to industrial projects related to power plant investments.
