Sustainable production of biomass energy and chemical products.

Hydro-Torrefaction of Non-food Biomass

ABS specialized process reduces lignocellulosic biomass bulk density while leaving the cellulose (structural) portion of the wood intact. The resulting Hydro-torrefied™ biomass is improved for use as pellet fuel, paper pulp, reconstituted wood products, and nano-crystalline cellulose.

Value-Added Product Recovery

Hemicellulose and other valuable chemicals are separated from lignocellulosic biomass during hydro-torrefaction. These recovered byproducts are converted to direct substitutes for energy and products currently derived from coal, petroleum, and natural gas.

Biorefinery Process Design and Engineering

ABS and its strategic partners provide business consulting services and technology licensing for the biomass industry.
