Biomass Technology Centre
BTC is a pilot plant for research, development, innovation, and education on the processing and pretreatment of biomass and by-products from bio-based industries. Our unique expertise lies in the industrially relevant R&D that we conduct throughout the value chain, from raw materials to end-use. Our vision is to develop innovative technologies to achieve greater efficiency in bio-based industrial processes. Our infrastructural resources include comminution, drying, grinding, fractionating, compacting (pelletizing and briquetting), thermal processing, and combustion in both bench- and pilot-scale. We conduct sampling and perform chemical and physical characterization in-house or in collaboration with others.
