There are currently few realistic alternatives to fossil fuels for Höganäs, due to the need for precise control, high temperature and purity. However, a new technology called Woodroll® and developed by Cortus Energy in Sweden, may allow for gasification of biomass to energy gas, which can then be used in metal powder production. The technology has so far been tested in lab. To verify the results and economical aspects, tests on an industrial scale during a longer period are necessary. The plan is to start testing the energy gas at the Höganäs’ plant in Sweden during the fist half of 2018.
