Apr. 16, 2012 – The Centre for Research and Innovation in the
Bio-Economy (CRIBE) will be providing $6 million in funding to help foster a partnership that will develop
a fast pyrolysis process to covert wood into bio-oil and gas.

CRIBE is a new provincial initiative to help transform the forest-based product industry in Northern Ontario, and plans to treat wood waste with a process that will rapidly convert the biomass to product crude bio-oil and gas without the use of oxygen (fast pyrolysis). The goal of this project is to create drop-in fuels, that can be blended directly with gasoline or diesel.

According to an article from Waste Management World, CRIBE's funding will help leverage a $14 million project between Domtar, a Montreal-based pulp and paper company and an independent research specialist, Battelle.

"The project will run in two phases," says the article. "Phase 1 will utilise wood waste
from Domtar's Dryden mill to produce the higher value bio-oil and once the process is optimized and results are demonstrated, phase two
will involve the construction of a 100 ton (91 tonne) per day pilot
plant, to be integrated into the Dryden facility."
