Envergent Technologies LLC (Des Plaines, Ill.; www.envergenttech.com), a Honeywell company, has signed a memorandum of understanding with Finland’s Green Fuel Nordic Oy under which the two companies would collaborate on projects to convert biomass to renewable fuel for use in district heating systems in Finland. The companies will evaluate the installation of new facilities to convert forest residues into liquid biofuel using Envergent’s RTP rapid thermal processing technology. RTP produces a clean, liquid biofuel that can be burned in industrial burners for heat, replacing petroleum-based fuel. Green Fuel Nordic expects to build multiple RTP facilities in Finland over the next several years to supply biofuel for district heating systems that heat residential and commercial buildings from a central location.  “There is significant opportunity in Finland to utilize forest residues to generate clean, Finland has targeted that 38% of its energy use be generated from renewable sources by 2020.  "Envergent RTP commercially proven technology could provide a great opportunity to establish distributed biorefineries in Finland and meet the country’s broader strategy for local energy production.
