The Company received an order extension for a further 9 shipments of BioOil from its US based client to be delivered over a period of 3 months which takes planned deliveries of BioOil from the plant to April 2010
Both BioOil and char are produced simultaneously during Dynamotive's proprietary fast-pyrolysis process, which creates a usable source of energy from cellulosic biomass.
Once operational, DynaMotive said the facility will be capable of producing approximately 70 tons of BioOil, 20 tons of char and 10 tons of non-condensable gases using the company's patented fast pyrolysis system.
By virtue of being derived from bio mass, BioOil is an alternative to fossil fuel; it is renewable and green house gas neutral.
