Norsk Energigjenvinning provides chipping solutions and logistics solutions for woody biomass products.
Wood-based products are used for a wide range of purposes, and are a main source of fuel in many parts of the world.
The primary commodity of the Norwegian timber industry is lumber that is used for construction or for pulp and paper production. When timber harvest residue is left to decay, a potential resource for fuel and other products is wasted.
Norsk Energigjenvinning provides facilities for chipping and grinding the by-products of lumber production. Its equipment has maximum energy efficiency ratings, using a combination of diesel fuel and electricity. The company’s processing solutions take into account many important variables, including the volume, energy density, ash content, impurities and moisture percentage of the biomass.
The company also offers solutions for transportation and storage of biomass products as well as ship loading solutions.
Norsk Energigjenvinning is ISO 9001 and ISO 14001 certified.
Norsk Energigjenvinning’s sister company, Norsk Biobrensel, maximises the potential of timber by converting waste from the forestry industry into biofuel and other products. Norsk Energigjenvinning facilitates the processing and delivery of these products to customers.
There are many promising markets for wood biomass products including biofuel. According to the International Renewable Energy Agency (IRENA), solid biomass from forests, farms and cities is already a major energy source for heat and power generation, and could potentially account for one ﬁfth of global energy consumption by 2050.
Norsk Energigjenvinning has high capacity, distributing over 150 000 metric tons of biomass products in 2018, with a turnover of more than USD 9 million.
Norsk Energigjenvinning was founded in Norway in 1998 and is part of the Ergon Nordic energy group. Together with its sister company, Norsk Biobrensel, the company currently supplies customers in Scandinavia, Europe and Africa.
