“Our team popped up” to address the main goal of greenhouse gas reduction through the production of biodiesel at kraft pulp and paper mills (KPPM), said Merja Strengell.

Strengell summarized future challenges for integrated biorefineries and biofuel plants.
Challenges include competition for raw material; process technology, which “doesn’t exist yet at the industrial scale”; the complex process setup; demanding energy and process integration; and the market supply and demand relationship for multi-production, wood paying capability, and optimal use of biomass.

Strengell described two studies. The first evaluated the constraints and benefits of integrating biofuel production with a KPPM. This study looked at liquid biofuel production in the global context and the potential share of wood-based biodiesel. It evaluated the constraints of biomass availability and the number of suitable production sites.
