Solvay starts industrial scale Torrefied Biomass Facility

Torrefied biomass contains 35% more energy by weight than wood pellets, which also yields significant logistical benefits to customers.
Torrefied Biomass
Solvay has launched the production of torrefied biomass at an industrial scale in the United States. The business will be run by the recently created Solvay Biomass Energy joint venture between Solvay and U.S. company New Biomass Energy (NBE). Torrefied biomass, which handles and burns similarly to coal, is produced through torrefaction, a process that modifies the chemical properties of waste wood and biomass.
