Pöyry awarded contract from Biozin Holding for the pre-engineering phase of biozin production plant in Norway

By Gerald Ondrey |

Biozin Holding AS (www.biozin.no) has awarded Pöyry Oyj (www.poyry.com) with the Owner’s Engineering Services assignment for the pre-engineering phase for the planned biozin production plant in Jordoya, Åmli, Norway. The new plant will convert biomass to liquid biocrude that will be sold and further processed into transportation fuels in oil refineries. The work is scheduled to be carried out between 2018 and 2020.

Production of biozin will be based on the licenced technology IH2 –  license held by CRI/Criterion Catalyst Company Limited. The IH2 technology is an efficient cost-effective technology to convert woody biomass and forest residues feedstock into renewable, low carbon, clean burning hydrocarbon transportation fuels.

Biozin Holding AS,owned by Biozin AS, a subsidiary of the Norwegian sawmill company Bergene Holm AS. Biozin AS and the Swedish oil company Preem AB, has entered into a cooperation agreement with the intention to realize a full-scale biozin production plant located adjacent to the Bergene Holm AS sawmill in Åmli in southern Norway. A production plant will consume about 700,000 m3 of feedstock and produces 120,000 m3 biozin, a biocrude that will be refined into normal transportation fuels. Preem AB will purchase biozin from the plant, for further processing and distribution. The sustainable by-product biocarbon from biozin production can be applied in a variety of applications. The project’s total cost is expected to be approximately NOK3.5 billion. The ambition is to establish more production facilities in Southern Norway.

 

The value of the order is not disclosed. The order is recognized within the Industry Business Group order stock in H2/2018.
