GFN Lieksa is a Green Fuel Nordic subsidiary operating a BTG Bioliquids fast pyrolysis bio-oil plant in the Kevätniemi industrial area in Lieksa. The Lieksa-based company will produce the bio-oil, with parent company Green Fuel Nordic Oy responsible for sales, marketing and product development. The raw materials for the bio-oil refinery consist of sawmill by-products and biostem. The annual production capacity of the refinery is 24,000 tons of bio-oil.
The GFN Lieksa bio-oil refinery is located in the town of Lieksa, in Lieksan Teollisuuskylä Oy’s Kevätniemi industrial area. From GFN Lieksa’s point of view, the Kevätniemi area offers an ideal location for a bio-oil refinery. The same area can also be utilised for continued investments, both in bio-oil production and further refinement. The GFN Lieksa Oy bio-oil refinery uses approximately 90,000 k-m3 of raw material per year, refined into 24,000 tons of bio-oil. GFN Lieksa Oy’s goal is to increase production capacity in Lieksa’s Kevätniemi industrial area while staying within the regulatory constraints.
