Topell Energy’s first commercial-scale torrefaction plant in The Netherlands
To achieve a breakthrough in the development of large-scale torrefaction, the management of Topell Energy decided in 2008 to set up a commercial-scale torrefaction plant. Currently, Topell Energy is operating this commercial torrefaction plant in Duiven (The Netherlands), which will ultimately have a production capacity of 60,000 tons per annum. This plant is owned by Topell Nederland. Topell Nederland is owned by Topell Energy B.V. and , RWE Innogy GmbH, (the renewable arm and 100% subsidiary of the German utility group RWE AG), and the Dutch waste and energy company HVC.
