Södra and Statkraft building new demo plant in Norway

December 16, 2017 |

In Norway, Sweden-based Södra and Statkraft are investing approximately SEK 500 million (nearly $59 million) in a new demo facility for fossil-free fuel. The biofuel will be based on forest raw material and the demo facility is expected to be in operation by spring 2019. The investment will be made through the joint company Silva Green Fuel AS, in partnership with technology provider Steeper Energy Aps and Norwegian financing partner Enova.

The demo facility will be located in Tofte, Norway, and project planning will commence in the winter. Start-up is planned for spring 2019, with a capacity of about 4,000 litres per day. The raw material will consist of residual products from the forest industry.

The demo facility is a first step towards a full-scale facility. It will be used to develop both the process and the technology for producing the new biofuel. In the next stage, the plan is to establish a full-scale facility, with biofuel production for various types of transport, including road and air.
