Bio-coal is a wood-based biomass that can be used to partially replace coal in power plants, stimulating the generation and use of renewable energy. Two bio-coal projects have been established in the port of Rotterdam. Bioforce’s goal is to build a factory that processes wood chips into bio-coal. Biolat will, among other things, deal with the logistics of transporting biomass and bio-coal, both in the port of Rotterdam and farther afield, particularly in Germany, where bio-coal will contribute to the green energy sector.
