Verification of production of stabilized pyrolysis oil at Cortus – step 1

Cortus AB’s concept, WoodRoll®, is based on gasification with the main purpose of converting residues from the forest industry via pyrolysis to a pure bio-based synthesis gas. As a complement to the existing concept, it is of interest to expand the concept to become more flexible and be able to extract high-quality biobased fuels and chemicals via upgrading of the pyrolysis vapors together with the use of internally produced hydrogen/synthesis gas. The purpose of this project is to verify production of stabilized pyrolysis oil, via so called ex-situ catalytic hydropyrolysis, in Cortus facility in Höganäs.
