Producing Liquid Biofuels


Data analysis and reporting to support the design of commercial biofuel plants in Europe were completed in 2011, successfully concluding the 3+ year project. Testing provided Andritz/Carbona and their client UPM-Kymmene, a global forestry company, with process data for their biomass-to-liquids (BTL) development program. UPM has selected 2 potential building sites, in either Finland or France, for the biorefinery location and has completed environmental impact assessments. An investment decision on this first-of-a-kind installation is anticipated later in 2012.

E.ON joined the project team as a cosponsor, which demonstrated most of the core technology necessary for their biomass to SNG interest, and later announced an agreement with Andritz/Carbona for a project based on the technology.​
