60 000 m3 (47000 tons)/year
Strong action and new products are needed to tackle greenhouse gas emissions. The advanced biofuels that BioEnergo's products play a major role in reducing emissions.
Emissions from gasoline engines can be reduced by adding bioethanol to fossil gasoline. The EU Fuel Directive dictates the amount of bioethanol in existing cars. With small technical changes, a conventional car can use higher bioethanol levels, up to 85% (E 85).
BioEnergo's bioethanol is a second-generation wood-based bioethanol produced with environmentally certified SEKAB technology according to the ISO 14001 standard.
Liquified biogas (LBG) 130 GWh/year
During fermentation, cellulose is converted into sugars. In distillation, sugars are converted to alcohol (2G bioethanol). The distillation process results in a large amount of water and distillation sludge, which is directed to the biogas process. The biogas process produces a gas containing 65% methane, which is liquefied and concentrated to 99%. Biogas is used as a transport fuel. With regard to biogas, the market as a transport fuel will become clearer when the biogas distribution obligation enters into force, which will improve market stability and price levels.
70.000 dry tons/year
Lignin is a very common substance in nature, as about 30% of all carbon in the earth’s biomass and 14-40% of the dry weight of woody plants is lignin. In addition to cellulose and hemicellulose, lignin is an important building block in plants. In industry, lignin has been mainly a by-product of pulp production, burned into energy, but it would also have plenty of better use. BioEnergo uses an enzymatic hydrolysis process to break down wood raw material and to separate and use lignin for more valuable purposes than combustion, such as a binder in "green asphalt", replacing fossil oil-based bitumen.
44 000 tons / year
It is estimated that about 44,000 tons of carbon dioxide will be recovered per year. The recovered carbon dioxide can be used, for example, in the production of hydrogen, as a greenhouse gas in greenhouses, as a shielding gas for the food industry or further processed into fuel.
Biogas sludge can be processed into fertilizer or used as a soil improver. Another alternative is to further process the sludge into biochar. The turpentine to be separated in the process (approximately 500 t / a) is delivered to industrial customers for utilization, for example, as bioenergy.
