Fortum Otso bio-oil
Ecological Fortum Otso bio-oil is produced from renewable wood-based raw materials by using fast pyrolysis technology. Fortum Otso bio-oil originates from Finnish woods, that is why we have named it Otso which refers to bear.
Renewable oil reduces C02-emissions by 90%
Bio-oil is competitively priced
Ideal for for heat and steam production
Fortum Otso bio-oil reduces C02-emissions by 90% compared to fossil fuels
Bio-oil can replace heavy or light fuel oil e.g. at heat plants and in industrial steam production. It is ideal for production sites where the steam or thermal loads fluctuate and which are designed for liquid fuel. Fortum Otso bio-oil is sulphur-free, and it is a cost-efficient alternative for meeting energy production emissions limits.
Ecological bio-oil is produced in Joensuu, Finland
Fortum Otso bio-oil is produced from renewable wood-based raw materials like forest residues, wood chips or sawdust. We started bio-oil production at our bio-oil plant in 2013. This plant is integrated with combined heat and power (CHP) plant. Our bio-oil plant utilises fast pyrolysis technology and is the first of its kind in the world on an industrial scale. We have the readiness to add the bio-oil production element to several CHP plants in Finland and other countries.
