Bioendev has supplied 150 tonnes torrefied pellets to SSAB Merox in an ongoing national research project. The Biocoal is mixed with residual material in briquettes and charged into the blast furnace at the SSAB Special Steel integrated steel plant. Hereby the fossil carbon dioxide emissions are expected to be lowered.
The project is coordinated by Swerea MEFOS and involves several industrial and academic partners.
