As most of you know, we are commercializing a unique form of torrefaction technology, developed by NC State University (NCSU). This process will densify, add value to, improve the characteristics of woody biomass, making it a much better feedstock for which to co-fire with coal, make superior pellets and briquettes and to use in gasifier operations. It also allows treated biomass to be shipped more economically and for greater distances.

Here's a picture of the 2nd-generation torrefaction machine. It is now operational and we are scheduling visits for a very limited number of additional individuals, on Friday, August 29th. Let me know if you wish to visit. Our horizon for having commercial units available is now sooner, rather than later, thanks to the hard work of our NCSU team and our strategic partners.
