Gasification offers possibilities to produce second generation liquid biofuels in a sustainable manner from indigenous and renewable sources.
Through gasification, biomass can be converted into a gaseous intermediate which allows for clean and high-efficiency production of a wide range of end-products including chemicals, transportation fuels, power and heat.
From research to industrial success
A major part of our activities is related to process development work, which we are able to carry out at laboratory- and pilot-scales with our unique test facilities and world-class expertise. In co-operation with our clients and industrial partners, we are also involved in several European demonstration and commercial projects. In addition, we perform techno-economic feasibility studies with a variety of gasification processes and applications.
World-class knowhow and unique facilities
VTT´s Bioruukki pilot plants offers world class platform for new technology development, piloting and demonstration.
Our test facilities range from laboratory-scale reactors to bench-scale testing units and pilot-scale process development plants. VTT´s gasification measurement and analysis services support process development work.
From the early 1980s to the present, we have been involved in several European gasification projects aiming to develop and demonstrate gasification processes on a commercial scale. We have been working together with leading biomass gasification technology suppliers, energy and forest companies.
