MOBILE FLIP, Mobile and Flexible Industrial Processing of Biomass, is a four-year EU project involving 12 organisations from Sweden, Finland, France, Greece and Estonia, including Processum. The aim is to develop and demonstrate mobile processes for the treatment of underexploited agro-based and forest-based biomass. The key processes being evaluated are pelletising, torrefaction, slow pyrolysis and hydrothermal carbonisation and pre-treatment. The products would partially be used for fuel in various forms, replenishing soil nutrients, chemicals for the wood panel industry, as well as intermediates for sugar platforms.

"The objective for the project is to reduce transport costs for these processes, with the end product in many cases being used in the area where the mobile unit is located", says Emma Johansson, Processum. "In cases where the end user is somewhere else, processing the biomass on site can reduce transport volumes or the number of times you need to transport it. SP Processum is involved in the process for hydrothermal pre-treatment of biomass, as well as the purification and concentration of the resulting product".

The second newsletter from MOBILE FLIP has just been published and can be read and downloaded from the MOBILE FLIP website.

Participants at the Open Demonstration Workshop of Mobile and Flexible Industrial Processing of Biomass organised at SLU, Umeå, Sweden on the 16th of June 2016.
