The proven versatility of our technology and the combined experience of our leadership team sets Arbios Biotech apart in accelerating towards a low-carbon circular economy.
Arbios Biotech will target and re-purpose significant volumes of post-consumer biomass and other bio-based recovered resources.
The ability of our Cat-HTR™ technology to use a wide variety of low-cost and waste feedstocks means that we can scale up and build multiple stand-alone and integrated plants around the world.
Arbios Biotech has the world's first small-scale commercial HTL plant (CS-1), with the ability to process 5000 tonnes per annum of post-consumer and residue biomass (producing 10,000 barrels per annum of renewable bio-oil), using commercial-scale reactors.
Arbios Biotech continues to work alongside the team at Licella Technology Development to refine and optimise the Cat-HTR™ process for a range of post-consumer biomass feedstocks.
We are proceeding with the development of a new biomass to biofuels plant in Prince George, British Columbia near Canada’s west coast. The project is initially building one processing line, which will convert 25,000 dry tonnes of residue wood biomass to 50,000 barrels of sustainable bio-oil per year. The facility has the potential to expand up to four processing lines within the existing footprint. This plant represents the next scale-up of Arbios’ hydrothermal liquefaction (HTL) technology.
Scheduled to start producing sustainable, renewable biocrude in 2023, the plant is being built on a portion of Canfor’s Intercontinental Pulp Mill site. Being developed within the traditional territory of the Lheidli T’enneh First Nation, the project team has been working in partnership with the Nation who have named the facility Chuntoh Ghuna, meaning "the forest lives".
By working within markets where biofuels stimuli are available, we can maximize the economics of the projects for our partners, as well as creating jobs for that market in a growing bioeconomy.
