With a team of highly enthusiastic professionals, we are working hard to change the world for the better by making our fast pyrolysis technology a worldwide success.

Our technology enables customers to turn biomass residues into a renewable fuel: fast pyrolysis bio-oil (FPBO). FPBO can be used to replace crude oil, so that more fossil resources can stay untouched.

We’re on a mission, to offer the world an alternative for crude oil.
