Create the world’s first integrated bio oil production plant & demonstrate the viability of bio oil as a replacement for fossil fuels in heat production
VTT’s patented process integrates a fluidized-bed boiler with pyrolysis. Produced in this way, bio-oil is more cost-efficient than when produced in a separate pyrolysis process.
- A short timeline from research to demonstration
- Replacement of fossil fuel in the generation of heat and power
- Efficient use of forestry waste streams
VTT’s role in our research consortium has been crucial.
Their long experience and world class competence in fast
pyrolysis has enabled a fast
track from research to demonstration.
