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!
