The tide is turning

Some 150 years of fossil-fueled technical progress is rapidly coming to an end. Torrgas believes that bio-energy can be the fuel of choice for tomorrow’s economy – and with our strategy, it will be.

We have found a new solution towards a more biobased society. Our two-step approach of gasification creates two products: syngas and char. This technique helps us to optimize the possible energy values and biochemical applications, without pollution and with zero waste.

But technology is one thing. A sustainable production cycle is just as important. We have implemented an innovative business model to make our bioproducts real competitive and sustainable.

In our vision, biomass is not just a means to an end, but the starting point. By reversing the logistic circle of the production process and designing small-to-midscale biorefineries, demand becomes the center of attention. We continue our quest for niche markets, to find new ways to implement our modular gas.

And we incorporate our byproducts into our business model and strive for total efficiency in every step of our production process. In doing this, we have create a smart and profitable business model for the decentralized production of bioenergy.

We do this because we believe that a biobased economy is no longer a utopian dream, but a practical necessity.


A true alternative

To make our bioenergy products more competitive with fossil fuel equivalents, we have implemented innovative technology to gasify torrefied biomass in a two-step process. This technology allows us to unlock the highest possible energy value of this fuel. The result is a tar and nitrogen-free syngas, which can be used for many, many applications. Read more

We dare to think smaller

The introduction of innovative technology can only solve so much. If bioenergy wants to earn a place in the global energy market, more is needed. Or, better put, less is needed. We offer practical and technological solutions that will produce local energy from local waste, and we are always looking for new markets. Read more
