Long expertise in biomass processing
Bio-energy and biomaterial R&D centers
Expert maintenance and support
Steam treated pellets
“Steam treated pellets” is the generic name for a range of thermally-treated biofuel pellets intended for substitution of fossil-origin material in heat and power production. Woody biomass or agricultural residues can be processed into steam treated pellets via various methods, including hydrothermal carbonization, torrefaction (mild pyrolysis) and steam treatment.
Since the composition of the raw biomass used in production processes can vary widely, accurate production and consumption data are essential for safe, reliable and profitable operation.
Valmet’s automation solutions and Industrial Internet technologies enable companies that produce and use biofuels and biomaterials to improve the efficiency of their operations. For example, with a plant-wide Valmet DNA automation system, bio-energy companies can have precise control of their processes and get the data needed to continuously optimize them.
Valmet supports customers in the biofuels and biomaterials industry with a comprehensive service offering through more than 40 service centers around the world. This includes laboratory and piloting services for biorefining, hydrolysis and energy production, as well as Valmet Performance Agreements, maintenance services and training.
