Biomass is one of the key areas we focus on. We believe sustainable biomass could have an important role to play in the future of low carbon energy mix. Projects include conversion of old coal plants like Amer Centrale in the Netherlands or one of the world’s largest dedicated biomass power plants with 750 MW in Tilbury in the UK.
In Enna, Italy, Goch, Germany and Markinch, in the UK, we are currently building biomass power plants.
We are taking a leading role in the research of the use of biomass as a power generation fuel. Torrefication and pyrolysis are two important future technologies in this area, and our plants in the Netherlands are currently running intensive testing in these areas.
