Largest fast pyrolysis plant to be built

Ensyn Technologies Inc. and Tolko Industries Ltd. have formed a partnership to build the world’s largest commercial fast pyrolysis plant in High Level, Alberta. The partnership, High North BioResources Limited Partnership, was formed to build and operate a plant capable of processing 400 bone dry tons of biomass per day into 85,000,000 liters (22.5 million United States gallons) of pyrolysis oil annually.

This pyrolysis oil will be used to produce renewable energy in the form of electricity and heat that will be used in Tolko’s sawmill at high level. The facility will also be capable of producing a renewable resin ingredient that can be used in the manufacture of wood panel products. High North will immediately commence the regulatory approval process for the project.
