Will New Technological Advances Offer Fresh Capabilities for Commercialization and Enhance BTL Investments?
Date:7/14/2008

3rd BTLtec (Biomass to Liquids) will be held in Göteborg, Sweden on October 13-14, 2008 with major authorities and project stakeholders from Europe and the US, discussing commercialization of BTL. Technological advancements & worldwide growth of BTL projects set the tone for the more than 20 experts sharing insights on biomass to liquid industry prospect

Göteborg, Sweden (PRWEB) July 14, 2008 -- The 3rd BTLtec conference to be held in Göteborg on October 13-14, 2008 will look at two issues that are critical to the widespread commercialization of BTL:

  • That the integration of a BTL plant with a pulp and paper mill can be economically attractive under many circumstances.
  • Are forest biomass resources sufficient to support future growth in BTL projects plans and are there alternative feedstock options?

The October meet also features insights on the latest technological, policies, projects and market trends in the BTL value chain. In addition, focused case studies on the future directions of sustainable Biomass conversion in Sweden, BTL in Norway and the overall outlook on supply and demand of Biomass in EU will put regional developments in BTL into broader perspective.

Improved technologies in gasification and F T processes are opening new opportunities for even pulp and paper mills to play the important role in bioenergy field as biomass processors. In fact it was reported just last month that Neste Oil plans to build a $1B NExBTL Renewable Diesel Plant in Rotterdam. Prior to this, in May last year, UPM, a global forestry company teamed up with Carbona to develop synthetic biofuels.

Neste Oil together with UPM-Kymmene and Xynergo plus prominent transport industry player Volvo Technology whose HQ is in Göteborg, Shell which has a minority stake in BTL producer CHOREN and global involvement in CTL, GTL projects plus initiatives on XTL (GTL/CTL/ BTL) technologies and many others are some of the invited panelists in the conference.

To complete the program, an optional half day tour site visit to the Växjö Värnamo Biomass Gasification Centre (VVBGC) is also planned on the October 14, 2008. VVBGC is an R&D centre inviting collaborative initiatives in gasification of biomass, feeding systems, hot gas cleaning, IGCC syngas upgrading, catalyst research, BTL processes, H2 for fuel cells. The plant is currently based on an IGCC process which is planned for rebuild to syngas version. Investments into the VVBGC Pilot plant are supported by the Swedish Energy Agency and also partly by the EC through it Framework 6 Research Project CHRISGAS. The aim of the CHRISGAS Project is to demonstrate the production of a clean and hydrogen-rich synthesis gas from woody biomass.

In line with the 3rd BTLtec 2008, the event organiser CMT, is giving out an exclusive presentation paper on "GTL, CTL and BTL: Friends or Enemies" by Dr Mark Morgan as a prelude to what to expect in Göteborg. In this 36 paged slide presentation, Dr Mark Morgan - Executive Consultant of Nexant Chemsystems reveals key insights into the sustainability of BTL projects, its technology evolution and development. Rated one of the TOP Presentations at the 2nd BTLtec Conference 2007 in Vienna, this presentation may be downloaded for free at http://www.btltec.com/btlpaper/index.htm

3rd BTLtec will see key decision makers in the renewable energy sector convene to discuss the future of this dynamic and viable source of energy. Those interested to learn more must visit www.btltec.com for information about BTL and on how to register for this authoritative event.
