Biomass Torrefaction

HOW WE WORK

Biothek Ecologic Fuel works like an international promoter of technologies and concepts focused into the biomass torrefaction business.

READY TO WORK

We can study each case to know what is the real potential and the best solution in any part of the world.

NOW IS THE MOMENT

Today in the agricultural sector there are many opportunities to exploit but always with the correct torrefaction technologies.

35%
SAVING

Cheaper than other fossil fuel options

0%
CO2

Neutral CO2 content

90%
EFFICIENCY

High efficiency of combustion

ALL POTENTIAL

Currently, the agricultural waste and the energy crops could replace the fossil coal and create a very attractive business line. In Biothek Ecologic Fuel we have the experiencie and knowledge to get this goal.

WHY TORREFACTION?

The torrefaction process is the best way to get a good biofuel from “aggressive” or bad biomasses like straw or other similar. The process allows to raise the energy per kg, eliminate the chlorine and turn it into a hydrophobic fuel in other aspects.

The torrefaction

Biomass torrefaction is a thermal process used to produce high-grade solid biofuels from various streams of woody biomass or agro residues. The end product is a stable, homogeneous, high quality solid biofuel with far greater energy density and calorific value than the original feedstock, providing significant benefits in logistics, handling and storage, as well as opening up a wide range of potential uses.

Torrefaction of biomass results in a high grade biofuel which can be used as a replacement of coal in electricity and heat production and as input for gasification processes in the production of high value biobased fuels and chemicals.

Benefits over regular pellets:

  • Higher calorific value
  • More homogeneous product
  • Higher bulk density
  • Excellent grindability
  • Higher durability
  • Hydrophobic nature/water resistance
  • No biological activity
  • Low chlorine

Ideal coal replacement:

  • Grinds & burns like coal – existing infrastructure can be used
  • Lower feedstock costs
  • Lower shipping and transport costs
  • Minimal de-rating of the power plant
  • Provides non-intermittent renewable energy
  • Lower sulfur (compared with coal)
