Recently, BioValGroup (BVG) and Tebodin, part of Bilfinger Group, have signed a contract for the provision of engineering services to a semi-commercial demonstration plant, in which biomass residual streams will produce cleaner fuels for the energy sector and high-grade fertilizer.
Cleaner at a lower cost
BVG makes it possible to upgrade low-value biomass residual streams to clean, uniform energy pellets. Compared to wood pellets, the product is cleaner because the mineral level is minimized and can be produced at a lower cost price. George van Bommel, General Director of BioValGroup: ’This delivers potential for large-scale application in the energy sector, where contaminants in the fuel wood are currently causing maintenance problems.’ As a by-product, high-grade fertilizer will be produced. This demonstration plant will operate on a semi-commercial basis, functioning as a center of expertise and testing the technology of various biomass residual streams for future clients....
