 Project objective

The biopellet market is booming in Europe, and the production of wood pellets (main commercial product) has increased from 6-7 to 26 Mton/year in the period 2006-2015, and is expected to rise to 38 Mton/year in 2025, due to the general interest in substituting fossil fuel with CO2 neutral biomass. There is a need of solutions to utilise the potential of biomass residues currently available in forests, agriculture, agroindustry and parks, not being used today as it is too expensive to handle and process the feedstock. Our innovative solution consists in a mobile pelletizing unit, placed on a trailer that can be connected to a normal truck for transportation. This eliminates associated costs with buying land and obtaining building and permissions. The raw material is crushed, milled, dried, and pressed to biopellets. Our solution can handle a large variety of raw material, like straw, nut shell, rice husk, etc., although the main raw material is expected to be wooden residues. Only one operator is required, and the unit can produce up to 1.2 ton/h with a low energy consumption. Our first sales is expected to be in Switzerland and in France. By 2026, it is expected to have sold more than 400 units.
