Two Canadian companies will be building a demonstration plant to produce a renewable fuel called BioOil. Dynamotive Energy Systems Corp. (Vancouver, BC, Canada) has been operating a 10-ton-per-day pilot facility, converting wood waste and agricultural wastes into a liquid fuel that can be burned in boilers, gas turbines, and diesel engines.

Dynamotive recently announced that it is working with Canadian Forest Products Ltd. (Canfor) on a joint technical review of a 200-ton-per-day BioOil plant. The plant would be built alongside a Canfor facility, converting its wood waste into BioOil.
