Green Fuel Nordic shortly

Green Fuel Nordic Oy is a Finnish biorefining company. Its business concept is based on utilizing commercially proven, innovative pyrolysis technology to produce second-generation bio-oil. Using renewable woody biomass raw materials provides a new refining path for valuable forest assets.

Utilizing existing technology accelerates the start-up of refinery operations and the commissioning of commercial bio-oil production and it enables distributed energy production. In the near future, the company plans on building several biorefineries close to Finnish feedstock. In doing so, it is contributing to the achievement of the targets set for Finland’s renewable energy production and supporting energy self-sufficiency.

The chosen technology can be used to produce liquid, low-carbon and sulfur-free bio-oil from local, renewable forest-based biomass. Bio-oil can be utilized directly in industrial and municipal electricity and heat production, replacing light and heavy fuel oil. Emerging alongside these applications is the use of bio-oil to power marine diesel engines.

In the near future, it will be possible to upgrade bio-oil also into products comparable to transportation fuels existing today. Interesting applications in the longer term are found in the chemical industry.

The company, established in October 2011, is headquartered in Kuopio, Finland.
