Biomass Torrefaction Process Development

Biomass Secure Power Inc, AH Burns Energy Systems


To create a bio-oil from torrefied wood chips that can be used in a gas turbine to generate electricity.


Lambton College has teamed with Biomass Secure Power Inc and AH Burns Energy Systems to:

  • Torrefy wood chips under different process conditions to obtain a bio-mass with varying properties
  • Measure and analyze the properties of the produced bio-oil as a side product and its feasibility for uses in a gas turbine to generate electricity
