There's more detail on Dyanmotive's fast pyrolysis process on Environmental Resarch web. This is fast pyrolysis which is pretty much a continuous process, by the looks of things.
The plant in Guelph will process 66,000 dry tonnes of biomass each year and produce the same amount of energy as 130,000 barrels of oil... which is a useful amount. The bio oil is being produced from waste wood.
Evolution biofuels will run the plant. Dynamotive has a minority shareholding in Evloution. This is the second time I've written about Dynamotive this month, earlier I mentioined the firm had secured more funding.
