Enefit Outotec Technology commissions a shale-oil pilot plant in Frankfurt  

By Gerald Ondrey |

Enefit Outotec Technology (EOT; Frankfurt, Germany; www.enefit.com/eot), a joint venture (JV) of Estonia’s energy group Enefit and Outotec Oyj (Espoo, Finland; www.outotec.com),a global leader in providing minerals and metals processing technology, has brought a pilot plant based on Enefit solid heat carrier process into operation in Frankfurt am Main, Germany that shall allow EOT to provide services for testing oil production from different types of oil shale. The purpose of the pilot plant is to test the Enefit shale oil production process on different types of oil shale, collect data for adapting the process and produce test batches of shale oil for further analysis. “This is necessary to customize the industrial design of Enefit plants to the properties of a specific oil shale,” EOT’s CEO Alo Kelder says. “We have made an investment into a unique facility that allows our customers to benefit from more reliable and better performing shale oil plant designs.” “Previously we have studied the characteristics and behavior of different oil shale including Estonian, Utah and Jordanian oil shale on our smaller bench scale test unit. The pilot plant enables us to simulate the original process used…
