A success story together with Silva Green Fuel

Feb 3, 2023

From wood chips to fuel. Research and development within new energy is important in a polluted world - short of energy and an over production of waste.

Advanced biofuel is an important contribution to the decarbonisation of the transport sector. Silva Green Fuel´s mission is to produce fuel from raw materials that cannot become food, such as waste, residues and cellulose-containing material. A full scale production facility based on Silva Green Fields technology can reduce the emissions from the transportation industry with 250-375 tons CO2 yearly, based on raw materials (waste) from the forest industry. Advanced biofuel produced from forest waste provides a reduction in emissions of up to 95%, compared to natural decay.

In the innovative and complicated process of turning biological waste into fuel, there is a need for explosion proof equipment, in line with the requirements for other traditional oil and gas facilities. Durable handheld devices and a powerful collaboration service, all supported by local expertise and knowledge, was the target for Silva Green Fuel production site when evaluating solutions, says Joakim Svaeren, Operation Manager at Silva.
