When sourced from sustainably managed forests, using forest residues and thinnings we can process these materials in a CEG reactor and turn them into a large scale source of renewable fuel, suitable for either co-firing or replacement of fossil coal within existing power and heat generation infrastructure.

Biomass co-firing with coal is seen as a very important emissions reduction strategy.
Torrefied wood is a superior bio-energy product for co-firing purposes.
Torrefied wood co-firing with coal is the way to mediate sustainable environment policies
and interests of coal industry.
CEG’s unique torrefaction process converts biomass into bio coal, bio char, or activated carbon utilizing our proprietary torrefaction reactor.
Wood chips are thermally treated in an oxygen deficient environment, which leads to a dry solid product. Torrefaction combined with densification leads to an energy-dense fuel carrier in the form of pellets. These pellets have broadly similar properties to that of coal.
The difference between black and brown pellets is in the chemical composition and energy content, black pellets content a higher calorific energy value.
Black Torrefied pellets are the result of our proprietary torrefaction reactor technology that converts biomass into a biocoal with a much better fuel quality for combustion and gasification applications. Pellets are lighter, drier and more stable in storage.
Biochar is also a by-product of our torrefaction reactor technology and is excellent as a soil amendment for the agriculture industries. Biochar can help increase soil fertility, agricultural productivity, and protect against some soil-borne diseases. It may also help mitigate climate change by producing negative carbon dioxide emissions.
Biochar Dust is the result of biochar or biocoal pellets being ground up, this product can then be blown into a boiler or used as a soil fertiliser, its chemical properties have been proven to improve soil fertilisation.
Also called pyroligneous acid, Wood Vinegar is an acidic mixture of over one hundred chemicals. It contains approximately 86% water and 14% organic compounds including phenols, alcohols, acids, ketones, furans, aldehydes, sugars.
