BTG-BTL has plans to build a pyrolysis plant at Hengelo’s AkzoNobel site. The letter of intent was signed at the end of September by AkzoNobel Industrial Chemicals, Empyro and BTG Bioliquids. In the new plant wood will be converted to oil. The plant will also deliver steam to AkzoNobel and generate electricity for delivery to the public grid. Largest pyrolysis plant in Europe The Empyro plant, owned by the shareholders Tree Power and BTG Bioliquids, will “convert 5 metric tons of dry wood into oil, steam and electricity, per hour”. This conversion takes place on a commercial scale and uses a technique, owned by BTG Bioliquids. This technique has already proven itself in Malaysia, where a plant uses residual products of a palm oil plant. The new pyrolysis installation will be the largest in Europe and building it will require an investment of approximately 13 million Euros. A substantial part of the investment will be covered by an European subsidy because it is a pilot project. The installation will be built on a piece of land of 1 hectare and will be 20 meters high. It is expected that the construction can start in the second quarter of 2010.

If you wanted to know the answers to questions like “Can the Biomass-to-Biofuels option result in commercial success,” and “Are Biomass based Biofuels capable of meeting global alternative energy demand” then continue reading as we may have the answers you need.

CMT is pleased to invite you to view our free-to-air exclusive video “Prospects of Biomass to Liquid Fuels”, which guarantees a comprehensive analysis of the costs, economics and geographic merits of the Biomass-to-Biofuels option.

The video presentation features insights from
DR. LARRY SONG, General Manager of NEXANT Shanghai. Dr. Song has 25 years of industrial experience with companies like BP & ExxonMobil and is a leading expert in biomass conversion & bio-refinery. He has managed numerous projects in over 22 countries including China & the U.S, advising on the technical, economic, commercial and strategic planning aspects of biomass to energy projects.

“Prospects of Biomass to Liquid Fuels” was rated as one of the top presentations by the over 100 key industry representative who attended the Biomass World 2008 summit in Beijing on 23-24 September 2008 and will provide you with Realistic answers to the following critical questions including:

  • How does Biomass interface with the refining, power & chemical industries?
  • Where is the Biomass-to-Liquid fuels Industry heading?
  • What are the emerging Biomass feedstock?
  • What’s impeding the development of Biomass-to-Biofuels?
  • What are the latest developments in Biobutanol production?
    … Plus Many More …

In this presentation Dr. Song also touches on other first and second generation biofuels from feedstocks like natural oils, sugars, starches & whole grains, and provides a through comparison of the comprehensive Biofuels sector.

Biomass World 2009 is offering this “Prospects of Biomass to Liquid Fuels” video presentation as a lead up to the upcoming event to take place in Jakarta on the 9 & 10 February 2009.
