Demo plant for second generation biofuels

March 23, 2020 - 13:31
Posted in:
AFRY will design a demonstration plant for second generation biofuels. The contract was signed with Silva Green Fuel AS, which is owned by Statkraft and Södra.

The demonstration plant will be built at Tofte in Norway and will produce advanced, second generation biofuel based on raw material from the forest.

The demonstration plant is being built to test the technology before making the decision to invest in a larger commercial plant. Advanced second generation biofuels based on renewable forest raw materials can be an important contributor to reducing CO2 emissions from the transport sector, which account for 33% of greenhouse gas emissions in Norway.
