Bio coal

Bio coal is produced when biomass or residue containing biomass is torrefied. Bio coal is a replacement for fossil fuels, which can be used directly in traditional coal fired power installations. Bio coal is easier to grind, has better energy qualities, is more convenient to transport and reduces CO2 emissions. Power plants currently using traditional coal can become cleaner and greener by introducing bio coal.
