We utilize the latest technology to bring you the clean energy solutions you need.

Torrefied pellets are created through a process called torrefaction. First, the biomass is roasted, ground, and afterward pelletized.

Torrefaction is a thermal process that converts biomass into a coal-like material with superior fuel characteristics to the original biomass. Torrefied biomass is more brittle, making grinding easier and less energy-intensive. Compared to fresh biomass, storage of the torrefied material can be substantially simplified since biological degradation and water uptake is minimized.

Torrefaction involves heating biomass in the absence of oxygen to a temperature of typically about 300° C. The structure of the biomass changes in such a way that the material becomes brittle, and more hydrophobic. Although the weight loss is about 30%, the energy loss is only 10%. The main end-product is the solid, torrefied biomass. During the torrefaction process, combustible gas is released, which is utilized to provide heat to the process.

Using a unmerchantable roundwood, thinnings, harvest residues, bark, wheat straw, cornstalks, or similar products, torrefaction plants can produce an infinite amount of clean, renewable energy. These plants can produce fuel with consistent high quality, and are able to produce at a cost that can compete with fossil fuels in terms of prices, thereby giving a clean, cost-effective alternative to burn.

With this process, we can capture so much CO2 from the atmosphere that we can reverse global warming with a natural and profitable form of carbon capture.

Torrefied pellets could be interesting for several reasons.

  • They improve the cost efficiency of coal and peat burning plants.
  • Use of torrefied pellets will save coal and peat burning plants, which must otherwise be dismantled according to the government plans to make countries carbon-neutral.
  • Production of energy from renewable sources has obvious social benefits and is encouraged by officials. You can get the appropriate support from the Government using our torrefied pellets.
  • Our project can save peat-burning plants and assist them in preparing for the expected decisions to reduce and, in the nearest future, stop peat production in the world.

Our torrefied pellets:

  • Are fully compliant with DIN en ISO 17225-8:2016: “Solid biofuels – Fuel specifications and classes – Part 8: Graded, thermally treated and densified biomass fuels” and allows for the use of the existing boiler equipment without any changes.
  • Improve combustion properties – energy content and heating value.
  • Increase grindability. Require less energy in comparison with coal during processing.
  • Have an increased resistance to water absorption. The storage conditions are the same as for coal.
  • Have no problems with decomposition during storage. Torrefied pellets have reduced biological activity.
