Bioendev - The Biocoal Company


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 a 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. Apart from offering Commercial Scale torrefation units together with our EPC partner, Bioendev offers long-term offtake-contracts of Black Pellets in our Industrial Demonstration Plant in Holmsund, Sweden, which has a capacity of 16 000 tons/year. We also offer test batches of Black Pellets for industrial trials as well as tests of different raw materials. Bioendev offers patented torrefaction technology for Greenfield turnkey torrefaction pellet plants and converted conventional white pellet plants with the capacity of 30-200 kton/year to customers who want to solve the problems that exist with coal-usage or conventional biomass. The torrefaction technology can handle a wide range of raw material and the torrefied biomass can be used as powder or be densified through pelletizing or briquetting. Together with standardized drying and densifying technology our torrefaction plants will produce torrefied biomass with high process control, product quality and ability to customize the final product at a cost that provides good sales margins. Every customer case is unique and varies depending on the opportunities to exploit existing residual heat, machine equipment, geographic location and commodity options.
