Equipment development deal signed with Andritz
IFC and Andritz will work together to develop the factory process and equipment solutions, aiming to perfect every step in preparation for the technology to be scaled up to commercial scale production. IFC currently operates 2 pilot facilities in Finland. The operations have a nominal combined capacity of 150 tons/year.
Under the new agreement, Andritz and IFC will spend the next 6 months collaborating on the development, testing and validation of the process and equipment solutions, with Andritz providing equipment for both the mechanical and chemical pre-treatment processes as well as for the carbamation process. This will be followed by factory deliveries, with IFC expecting to secure commercial deals during 2021.
