“Biomass torrefaction is an innovative solution for companies that want to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and lower operating costs,” says Sylvain Bertrand of Airex Énergie, which recently received $2.7 million in funding for a biomass torrefaction pilot plant in Laval, Quebec. The carbon-neutral material has the potential to replace bituminous coal and fuel oil in combustion, filtration and metallurgical applications.
