The BTC technology offers high efficiency power generation from biomass at nearly double the ratio of traditional technologies. This high electrical efficiency nearly halves the marginal operating costs of the plant and allows higher profit margins and longer operating hours. Furthermore, a total efficiency as high as 110% is achieved with district heating applications. We consequently expect the BTC plant to be best-in-class for both combined heat and power and power-only plants.
Examples of attractive locations are the Nordic countries, sub-tropical and tropical countries with a good supply of biomass.
By combining the BTC plant with other technologies, waste materials like sewage sludge may be used. This presents an enormous market potential.
