We are building a new industry
Using technology developed by Shell, Biozin will transform waste and side streams from the forestry industry into environmentally friendly, high-grade second-generation biofuel for the transport sector.
Tomorrow’s oil comes from the forest
Biofuel can be a novel Norwegian industrial venture. Forests in Norway contain an abundant, sustainable growth surplus and we have professional competence from the wood processing and petroleum industries. Alongside Shell, Biozin possesses the needed infrastructure to bring the fuel from manufacturer to consumer.
With a vast and predictable market expanding both domestically and in the EU, Norway has every opportunity to establish a novel, future-oriented, green industry. Biozin intends to be a significant player in this field.
The green transition in Norway
Norway currently has regulation requirements for biofuel sales intended for road transport. At the core, everyone who sells fuel for road transport is by regulation required to ensure that 24.5 percent of the fuel sold in 2021 is biofuel.
A subsequent requirement is that a minimum of 9 percent of all fuels sold must be advanced biofuel. This is biofuel mainly produced from side streams and residues. Advanced biofuel is double-counted in regulation requirement accounts, which means that one liter of advanced biofuel equals two liters of conventional biofuel.
By use of new production technology, Biozin will use residues from the forestry and wood processing industries to manufacture renewable and sustainable advanced biofuel. Biozin’s production will be based on sustainable raw materials, and all resulting products will comply with requirements set in Norway and the EU.
Our first production plant is currently being established. Follow our step-by-step progress into this new, Norwegian industrial venture through our project updates!
Bid request for the development of Biozin’s land announced
Jordøya Tomteutvikling AS, who leases industrial site land to Biozin, has announced a tender competition for the development of the area to contain our new production facility. The site’s land area is 160.000 m2.
Updated plans for the Amli project
Our engineers have updated the plot plan for our planned production facility in Amli. The facility will be the first of its kind in Norway.
Agder municipality to finance FV415 upgrade
Road upgrades for FV415 from Simonstad to Hovdefjell will be financed by Agder municipality. The upgrades will facilitate the necessary infrastructure for Biozin’s new production facility in Amli.
