Future opportunities in biomass terminal operations. The future biomass terminal will have a variety of synergic activities aiming to improve profitability of related businesses. In Biopool-project new technologies and new operating models are tested and demonstrated for the future terminal.
- To develop a method for separate of certain fractions from biomass flow. These chips contain high fraction of high value wood extracts to be used as a raw material for chemical and medicine industry.
- To demonstrate new biomass drying technologies based on renewable energy in order to improve quality of biomass chips and less water to be transported.
- To test new methods in order to improve storability of wood chips and limitation of microbial action and lower the risk of self-ignition.
