Posted by: Stacy Hangemanole on 10/16/02 Title: environmentally sound solution for agricultural and forestry waste
Postnum: 99 EntryID:639
I work for DynaMotive Energy Systems Corp., and our proprietary “fast pyrolysis” process converts forest residue into liquid BioOil and char. BioOil is a clean burning, greenhouse gas neutral fuel that will initially be used to replace fossil fuels to generate power and heat in stationary gas turbines, diesel engines and boilers. The char is a high BTU (heating value) solid fuel that can be used in kilns and boilers and for briquette production. Recently tests done in conjunction with CANFOR, one of Canada's largest forestry companies, have proven that BioOil can successfully replace natural gas in lumber dry kilns.

What you call BioOil, is this what I may call bio diesel? What kind of production amount can DynaMotive produce? Can BioOil work in extreme winter environment for motor fuel or heating fuel? In our province of Saskatchewan we have a company that produces about 400 litres/day of bio diesel. I believe they refine their bio diesel to produce a high lubrication fuel additive.

No, BioOil is different from biodiesel. We get that question all the time because it is such a new product - but it is a product in of itself.

Currently we have a 10tpd (of bone dry feedstock) BioTherm at our R&D facility. Yields of product are generally: BioOil: 55-70% Char: 15-20% (which hase market use) Non-condensable gases: 5-15% (used to heat the process)

Our studies have shown that a plant will be most profitable starting at 200tpd.

We have successfully tested BioOil in gas turbine and diesel engines, for power and heat generation, as well as in Canfor's lumber dry kiln (which typically uses natural gas).

Hope that answers your questions!
