Our Production Plant

Futerra Fuels has reached the final phase of constructing one of the world’s largest torrefaction production facilities that will produce 120.000 tons of black pellets and 85.000 of white pellets per year.

Futerra Fuels has reached the final phase of constructing one of the world’s largest torrefaction production facilities. The plant in Valongo (Portugal) will produce 120.000 tons of torrefied pellets and 85.000 tons of white pellets per year. This plant is the first project of Futerra Fuels. The torrefied pellets will be delivered to power plants and industrial users in Europe, mainly by long term supply contracts. Also a number of small scale test projects will be conducted to validate torrefied pellets usage in smaller - domestic and commercial - boilers.

Our unique torrefaction process is based on the ‘swirling bed’ technology. Futerra can produce black pellets in a wide range of energy densities and various shapes and sizes. The plant is located in Northern Portugal, surrounded by eucalyptus forests that once served the pulp and paper industry. As the pulp and paper plants and plywood plants have been moved away, the Valongo area provides a sustainable source of biomass residues for feedstock. We are committed to this community and are pleased to bring employment and economic growth to the area. 

 

Futerra’s  torrefaction technology is designed and supplied by Yilkins in The Netherlands. The successful commercialization is a pre-cursor to our international roll-out of new production plants, initially in Europe and the America’s.
