Licella and Canfor Collaborate on Advanced Biofuels ProjectJune 1, 2016
Australia-based Licella Fibre Fuels and Canada-based Canfor Pulp Products have signed an agreement to form a joint-venture under the name Licella Pulp Joint Venture. The joint venture will study opportunities to integrate Licella's Catalytic Hydrothermal Reactor (Cat-HTR) upgrading platform into Canfor Pulp's kraft and mechanical pulp mills.
This aims to convert biomass, including wood residues from Canfor Pulp's kraft pulping processes, into biocrude oil to produce biofuels and biochemicals to further optimize their production capacity. In their trials, wood residue streams were successfully converted into a stable biocrude oil. When successful, the Licella Pulp Joint Venture would offer this solution to other Kraft and mechanical pulp mills.
