ABOUT US

Today

ArbaOne, located at Grasmo, outside of Kongsvinger, Norway, is the first full-scale commercial plant with an annual capacity of producing 70,000 tonnes of ArbaCoreTM, as well as furfural, methane and methanol.

 

The plant has a staff of 18 experienced and skilled personnel.

MAIN AREAS

E-FUEL
Energy production 

In-house energy generation

 

<2 MW methane and methanol fuel currently used for steam production line

 

Could alternatively be used for transport fuel

HMF
Core materials for bio-plastic bottles PEF

Material used for break-down of plastics

 

Ongoing development

Increasing demand, e.g. bio-based plastic bottles

FURFURAL
ArbaX

Used for various wood products

 

Pre-sold full capacity from ArbaOne to TFC. Examples of use for the end products are thermoset polymer matrix composites, cements, adhesives, coatings and casting/foundry resins.

Three R&D projects with funding providing significant upside

EXTERNALLY FUNDED R&D

projects

ArbaCore

Verification of biomass replacement of coal fired CHPs

Testing, demonstration & verification setup of small demonstration unit using different types of feedstock/ waste products from forestry & agriculture as feedstock

ArbaRaf

Chemical optimization

Increase output of bio-chemicals from condensate and washing of the biomass after the steam explosion process to ~35% of mass loss for different types of feedstock

ArbaFeed

Feed Protein extraction

Optimization of process parameters to demonstrate that enzymes from wood sugar can grow to single cell proteins for fish food

Arbaflame has a strong team executing the R&D programs
