Brazilian supplier to make torrefied biomass
By Scott Jamieson
Oct 29, 2011 - ERB Energias Renovaveis do Brasil Ltda., a Brazilian developer of biomass energy projects, will build a demonstration plant next year to turn wood into charcoal-like pellets that it will sell to European utilities.
The company is in talks to supply the biomass fuel to power
generators in the U.K., the Netherlands, and Germany, and may
build a commercial-scale facility in 2013, says Luiz Pellegrini,
industrial development manager of the Sao Paulo-based company. According to the Bloomberg report , the facility will produce torrefied wood.
