To develop a cost efficient torrefaction process, our first Pilot plant was built in 2007 in a joint venture with Umeå University and the Swedish University of Agricultural Sciences and acquired by Bioendev in 2008. The plant was successful, and an improved and up scaled version was built closer to Umeå University in 2012. BioEndev is running research and development projects along with leasing the plant to researchers at Umeå University.
Besides the research and development activities, we also provide projects for various institutions and customers. With our Pilot plant we can offer small test batches of torrefied biomass with very good possibility to adjust the product for different requirements. We can also run feasibility studies on different types of biomass to determine whether it’s suitable for torrefaction.
