Improve Feedstock Quality

Ensuring biomass-using facilities receive the highest-quality feedstock

improve-feedstock-quality-01.jpgWith biomass, quality is key (moisture content, size distribution, contaminants, etc.). FPInnovations has developed drying, handling, and storage expertise to preserve and improve the quality of biomass and match it to the selected conversion technology.

The focus is on quality and techniques to reduce moisture content, fire risk, and dry matter loss:

  • Reducing transportation costs; and
  • Better end-use performance.

Your Benefits

A facility consuming 250,000 oven-dry tonnes (odt) of biomass per year at 50% moisture content can generate savings of more than $1 million by reducing biomass moisture content by 5%.
