Woodmill Residue Handling
Outotec and Skellefteå Kraft AB agreed to create a joint company in 2009 – GreenExergy AB. The joint venture focuses on developing, marketing and delivering technologies to bio-energy power plants for the production of bio-energy from forestry and sawmill residues. Skellefteå Kraft is one of the largest energy producers in Sweden and owns a number of combined heat and power plants based on biofuel. The company has developed a process technology for producing bioenergy in the form of electricity, heat and pellets from forestry and sawmill residues, and two of its plants are already using this unique technology. The process is based on an innovative raw material drying technology, which considerably improves the energy efficiency of the production, in contrast to other existing alternative technologies.
Outotec has extensive know-how and global experience in technology development, technology sales, plant engineering and project implementation and it will provide these services in projects marketed and delivered by GreenExergy.
