Technip wins contract for new biomass-to-liquid plant
Technip, a France-based project management and engineering company, has won a multi-million euro front end contract to build a second generation biomass-to-liquid (BtL) plant in Finland.
The €5 million ($6.6 million) contract was awarded by Forest BtL and the facility will be built on Ajos island. It aims to produce approximately 140,000 tonnes of biodiesel and naphtha via wood and by-products from the wood processing industry.
The Ajos BtL project is supported by the European Union NER300 funding programme for renewable energy technologies.
