Biorefinery

Updated: 2012-04-10 | Print

Increasing concern for manmade climate changes and instability of oil supplying regions has intensified the search for sustainable and renewable energy solutions. The biorefinery integrates biomass conversion processes and equipment to produce fuels, power, chemicals and materials from biomass that represent minimal threat to the environment.

The biorefinery takes advantage of the differences in biomass components and processing intermediates, in order to maximize the overall value of the biomass input. This opens for the production of high volume commodity type products (e.g. biofuels) as well as low volume, high value specialty products.
