Developer and supplier of high-tech systems for cost efficient pre-treatment of biomass for use in heat and power generation, conversion to liquid fuels and production of green chemicals. Based on over ten years of research, BioEndev has developed an innovative torrefaction technology for production of black pellets. With over 10 patents we have an unique technology with high process control and availability. Black pellets resembles fossile coal in many ways but is renewable and carbon neutral. Black pellets are hydrophobic and has up to 50% higher energy density compared to white pellets. In our Pilot Plant we offer feasibility studies and small batches of black pellets. Our Industrial Demonstration Unit with 16 kton annual capacity will be up and running in 2016. We can offer large batches of black pellets and demonstration visits. We will soon be offering Commercial Scale torrefaction units together with our EPC partner.

Bioendev has developed a unique torrefaction technology since the company’s start in 2007. Based on the research around torrefaction and gasification at Umeå University in Sweden the company has kept developed an energy- cost-efficient as well as reliable torre¬faction technology for maximum yield and product quality. The long-lasting research has resulted in a strong patent portfolio focusing on process control, consisting of seven active patents internationally. We are now commissioning the largest torrefaction facility in Scandinavia with a capacity of 16 000 tons/year in order to prove our torrefaction technology in commercial scale. The produced black pellets will be available for large industry production tests in Scandinavia and internationally during 2016 and we have now reached a position where the technic is considered to be commercially viable for large industry production. Our strategic purpose is to deliver the market’s most cost-effective torrefaction facilities together with EPC-partners either through Greenfield or Retrofits of existing white pellets facilities. The organization especially consists of a creative team of Energy engineers, doc¬tors and scientists in Energy technology which have been part of the development of the torrefaction technology since the start.
