We replace fossil fuels
By providing the world with our fast pyrolysis technology.More about us
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.
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.
Create value by converting your biomass residues into FPBO. Our plants are designed to operate on a scale fitting in with the size and logistics of your biomass feedstock.
Fast Pyrolysis Bio-Oil (FPBO) offers many interesting opportunities for the production of sustainable transport fuels, biobased chemicals and heat. FPBO bridges the gap between agriculture and industry, providing nature-based alternatives for a wide range of conventional products.
FPBO can be upgraded to an advanced bio fuel, which complies with government regulations such as the EU RED2 directive or the US RFS program.
The biomolecules in FPBO open up the opportunity of producing a wide variety of renewable materials.
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!Read more
Pyrolysis oil is the product of heating of biomass without oxygen. Pyrolysis technology in its most traditional and simple form is heat oak or beech resulting in a dense smoke for smoking fish or meat.
Pyrolysis oil is a uniform liquid that can be used as a sustainable alternative to fossil fuels for the production of renewable energy and chemicals. It is obtained through a process called fast pyrolysis, which transforms biomass into a liquid.
