Energy and biochemicals from biomass residues: we make it work.

Our world needs renewable solutions for the production of energy and chemicals. As the leading fast pyrolysis technology provider we want to be part of these solutions: we deliver production plants that convert sustainable biomass residues into Fast Pyrolysis Bio-Oil (FPBO) that can replace fossil fuels.

Strictly sustainable residues

We deliver FPBO-plants that operate on biomass residues only, such as sawdust, sunflower husk, roadside grass and straw. We do not compete for land or with the food chain.

Our technology: producing fast pyrolysis bio-oil (FPBO) from biomass residues

  • The fast pyrolysis process consists of a thermochemical decomposition of biomass through rapid heating, at a temperature of 450 – 600 °C in the absence of oxygen
  • A wide variety of biomass feedstocks can be converted into FPBO, a homogeneous energy carrier
  • By-products of the fast pyrolysis process are heat (steam) and power (electricity)

About BTG Bioliquids

Fast pyrolysis technology was developed at the University of Twente in 1987. In that same year our sister company, BTG Biomass Technology Group, started out as a spin-off from the University. In 2007 BTG established BTG BioLiquids, to market further develop and commercialize the BTG technology. Since then, we have been working hard to make fast pyrolysis technology a worldwide success. Our motto: Let’s change the world for the better – and enjoy working at it too!
