Torrefied biocoal pellets

Baltania can typically produce between 21GJ/Ton to 24GJ/Ton pellets which represents a similar energy value to that of conventional fossil coal but aims to produce 21GJ/Ton pellets which have a significantly higher energy density value compared to wood and white wood pellets.

Baltania is a Tallinn based company focusing on bio energy production for mostly the utilities market in Northern and Central European Countries.

Co-firing

Environmentally friendly energy

Torrefied biomass especially after it has been pelletized has similar properties as coal and is the ideal fuel to replace non-renewable coal resources for use in existing coal processing plants and facilities. No expensive capex upgrades are required in comparison with white wood pellet production plants.

“The biocoal pellets can be used to partially or to fully replace fossil coal in electrical power or heat generation plants as a sustainable alternative without significant additional investment in plant conversion.”
