A new breakthrough has been made in converting biomass into a usable fuel. This new process uses liquid immersion heat treatment to make torrefied wood. Prior testing has shown that this system should prove to be faster, less expensive and safer than prior torrefaction methods, primarily due to the heat transfer advantages of immersing the feedstock in a high temperature heat transfer fluid, thereby creating direct contact between the hot liquid and the biomass surface. This new Carbon Neutral Fuel is called CNFbiofuel™ or CNF torrefied wood™.
