Thermal wood refining processes are used for production of different biofuels. Volatile compounds are separated from fixed carbon in the biomass in high temperatures and inert conditions. By using different gasification techniques, biofuels with similar properties to different fossil fuels can be produced:
- Solid torrefied wood
- Liquid bio-oil
- Wood gases
These fuels are excellent substitutes for fossil fuels, such as coal and fuel oil.
DustComb provides comprehensive solutions for pre-treatment of woody raw-materials for biorefineries. We also take part in researching and developing of biorefining processes and technologies.
