Blackwood Technology is partnering with:
Eskom generates approximately 95% of the electricity used in South Africa and approximately 45% of the electricity used in Africa. Additional power stations and major power lines are being built to meet rising electricity demand in South Africa. Eskom is planning to include biomass as part of its renewable fuel mix for power generation. It has identified torrefaction as a key enabling technology for biomass co-firing. www.eskom.co.za
Boreal Bioenergy Corporation (BBC), is a British Columbia based company committed to renewable and sustainable forestry-based energy production. The Company has plans well underway to construct and operate torrefied wood pellet plants in several locations across British Columbia and Alberta. The manufactured pellets will supply a rapidly growing global demand for biomass products increasingly used in industrial utility power generating facilities.
Blackwood Technology is participant in the following R&D programs:
Blackwood participates in a consortium to further develop its torrefaction technology and to develop the application of torrefied biomass in the decentralized heating market. This project is supported by a support grant from the Dutch Province of Gelderland.
The TKI Biobased Energy (TKI BBE) is an agency that supports the development of the Dutch biobased economy . Under auspices of the TKI BBE, Blackwood Technology participates in several projects. www.tki-bbe.nl
