ABOUT US

BACKGROUND

Arbaflame has produced arbacore since 2010 at full scale test plant

GRASMO TEST PLANT

Capacity ~40,000 tonnes/year

Accumulated production to date ~150,000 tonnes

Replaced by new plant ArbaOne at the same site

Production of Arbacore pellets for coal plants

Differentiation between batches to gain insights of different production properties

Fine-tuning of the production process to optimize production.

Testing various raw materials (soft, hard, gum etc.)

Extraction of bi-products providing considerable value creation.

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
