Biomass Pellets Offer a Carbon-Neutral Alternative to Coal

Sulzer Chemtech writes in Power on one company that is aiming to create biomass pellets that are a carbon-neutral alternative to coal.

The C3 Take
  • Oslo, Norway-based Arbaflame is aiming to produce 70,000 tonnes of “bio-coal” pellets per year.
  • Bio-coal pellets are carbon neutral and made from wood biomass and can be used to replace coal
  • Sulzer Chemtech, another European company, will use innovative separation technology to improve energy efficiency and decrease the environmental footprint of Arbaflame’s facility.
  • Innovations, not harmful regulations, are key to a clean energy future.

“Arbaflame’s facility in Grasmo, outside of Oslo, Norway (Figure 1), will produce 70,000 tonnes of “bio-coal” pellets per year. These are made of wood biomass and can be used as fuel in place of coal in power plants.”
