Dynamotive proposes bio-oil facilities

Dynamotive Energy Systems Corp., which has two operating bio-oil production facilities in Ontario, may locate similar fast-pyrolysis facilities in Willow Springs, Mo., and North Webster Parish, La. Its subsidiary Dynamotive USA Inc. wouldn't release project timelines but estimated that the proposed plants would process 220 tons of wood waste per day into 225,000 barrels of bio-oil and 14,000 tons of carbon char per year. BioOil and BioOil Plus are the company's trademarked replacements for No. 2 heating oil.
