Flash pyrolysis has so far principally been done in a demo- or test-facility environment. The technology is now ready to be scaled up to a commercially attractive scale. Tree Power is at the forefront of this development and is developing pyrolysis plants of 5 mt/h (biomass input) in the Netherlands, France and Spain. This is just the start of a broader roll out of pyrolysis installations. In this way Tree Power stimulates second generation biomass as an energy source and contributes to accomplishing a bio-based economy.
Tree Power is the trade name of Tree Energy BV. Tree Power focusses solely on the conversion of biomass to liquids via pyrolysis technology. Tree Power has its offices in Woerden, The Netherlands. Tree Power has two subsidiaries, Tree Power Spain and Tree Power France. Furthermore Tree Power has a participation in BTG Bioliquids BV, which owns the intellectual property of the fast pyrolysis technology used by Tree Power.
