TMO to receive biofuels feedstock supply from Heilongjiang

SURREY, UNITED KINGDOM: TMO Renewables, developer of second generation biofuels technology, signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) with the authorities of Heilongjiang, China, to secure long term large volume biomass feedstock supply for future biofuel production facilities from Heilongjiang State Farm, the largest state owned farming corporation in China.

The MOU is the first step towards building the first of a future series of second generation biofuel production facilities in China. TMO will be able to access the full potential of the HSF feedstock using its process demonstration unit (PDU) in Surrey. The UK’s first cellulosic demonstration facility, the PDU is used to conduct feasibility studies on a wide range of feedstocks to determine the optimal process for each material for clients at a commercially relevant scale.

“The scale of this opportunity is exciting and we are delighted to be developing our presence in China further. This is the first step towards building one of the first second generation biofuel facilities in China. Our network in China is growing and we look forward to announcing an offtake agreement for the ethanol produced, another key element that needs to be in place for the delivery of an operational plant in the province,” said David Weaver, CEO, TMO.
