Joensuu in Eastern Finland is the first Finnish Bio-oil city

Finnish energy giant Fortum ltd. opened 28th of November 2013 a new pyrolysis oil factory in Joensuu, Finland.

The factory produces annually 50 000 tonnes pyrolysis oil from wood biomass harvested from local forest. The leading edge technology for the factory is built by Metso ltd. The pyrolysis oil production needs 250 000 cubic meters of wood annually and employs 70 persons year around primarily for wood supply.

About biopadblog

Developing a local bioenergy market can provide significant opportunities for rural and remote areas, by improving security of energy supply, contributing to a reduction in CO2 emissions and stimulating the local economy by creating jobs and keeping payments for energy within the local community. A new project, BioPAD (Bioenergy Proliferation and Deployment), which targets the Northern Periphery of Europe, aims to ensure that bioenergy becomes more widely used and that awareness of the opportunities it provides are increased. The project will help the development of bioenergy and improve our understanding of the links between supply and demand by looking at supply chains for a variety of bioenergy fuels and different ways of converting these fuels into sustainable energy. Understanding the supply chains and the ways bioenergy moves from fuel source to energy provision will help the establishment of robust and efficient supply services which can match local demand. BioPAD is led by the Western Development Commission (Ireland) and is funded under the ERDF Interreg IVB Northern Periphery Programme (NPP)
