BTG-BTL expands project pipeline to include diesel and marine fuel

December 27, 2019 | Case Study

BTG-BTL formed a joint venture, Empyro, with Tree Power, the province of Overijssel, and a private investor in late 2009 to demonstrate commercial-scale conversion of woody biomass to pyrolysis oil through its fast pyrolysis process. In 2014 Empyro began construction of its 5.3 million gallon per year pyrolysis oil facility using sawdust as the feedstock, with the final product sold to FrieslandCampina for use in generating steam for its Borculo facility. The facility came online in May 2015 and reached full utilization by October 2017. In December 2018, the Empyro facility was sold to Twence.
