Choose from sophisticated thermal and biotechnical routes
VTT biofuels solutions are in use around the world. Our focus is on sustainable non-food materials like cane stalks, forest residues, straw and other lignocellulosic raw materials. Our proven technologies include both thermal and biotechnical conversion routes to next generation biofuels.
Flash to the future: Scientists in Finland make oil obsolete
Imagine: biodiesel plants using VTT´s CO2-to-fuels technology are in full operation. Adaptation of this technology has already resulted in a significant reduction in atmospheric CO2 levels, making global warming history.
Decentralised, customised solutions
VTT creates sustainable, profitable energy solutions. We believe in decentralising and customising for specific client needs. Depending on your local environment, the best choice might be VTT´s fermentation technology or thermochemical conversion platform.
Commercial scale biomass-to-liquid solutions
Biomass and waste are being converted to liquid fuels through gasification as we speak.
VTT develops advanced nextgen Biomass-to-Liquid (BtL) technologies at a commercial level. VTT integrated fast pyrolysis is already successfully replacing fossil fuels today. Transforming lignocellulose to bioethanol is faster and cheaper with intensified fermentation and less costly enzymes. The future is already here!
