Geminor acquires Norwegian biofuel producer

March 9, 2019 |

In Norway, waste fuels and resource management company Geminor acquired the Norwegian biofuel producer Bøn Biobrensel AS, strengthening its position in the Nordic secondary fuels market. The acquisition means that Geminor doubles its capacity in the production of wood chips for fuel in waste-to-energy facilities.

Geminor is currently England’s biggest exporter and Norway’s biggest importer of refuse-derived fuel (RDF) and solid recovered fuel (SRF), and has logistic hubs in Scandinavia, Finland and Germany. The company handles more than 1.5 million tons of waste each year and has contracts with more than 80 waste-to-energy and recycling facilities in Northern Europe.

“We are pleased to become a part of an ambitious company such as Geminor. The operation will continue as before, but we are now set for larger production and more tailor-made customer solutions in the years to come. In 2019 we expect to increase the production of chips to 120,000 tonnes,” said general manager at Bøn biobrensel AS, Johan Peter Olö.
