In 2015 we delivered the first commercial-scale 24/7 FPBO production plant in the world. Since then, we’ve traveled the globe to bring our fast pyrolysis technology to whereever biomass residues are.
We are now designing and building commercial-scale pyrolysis plants in the Netherlands, Sweden and Finland. Soon to be followed by the rest of the world. Biomass owners can use our technology to create a higher value from their biomass residues, in a way that is both sustainable and economical.
Empyro in Hengelo has been in operation since 2015, being the first commercial-scale 24/7 FPBO plant in the world. It produces 20 million litres of FPBO per year, used to replace natural gas in a steam boiler.
The Green Fuel Nordic Lieksa bio-oil refinery is located in the town of Lieksa, Finland. The Green Fuel Nordic Lieksa bio-oil refinery uses approximately 90,000 k-m3 of raw material per year, refined into 24,000 tons of bio-oil.
Pyrocell a joint venture of Setra and Preem, is scheduled to start production during 2021. The biofuel is mixed with other types of fuel resulting in a petrol and diesel that is partly composed of sustainable oil. This ensures that it will comply with the European RED II directive.
There’s more to building a fast pyrolysis bio-oil production plant than just assembling the technology. We make sure you and your team gain the knowledge you need to manage the entire operation. Your staff will be trained in a training simulator tailored to BTG Bioliquids’ fast pyrolysis technology and process. They will be fit for the job by the time the real on-site operations start.
Furthermore, we offer support in other relevant areas such as:
Fast pyrolysis technology was developed at the University of Twente in 1987. In that same year our parent 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
