Silva Green Fuel

Norway / Other activities / Other activities

Silva Green Fuel is a collaboration between Statkraft and Sødra, formed in 2015 to develop and produce advanced biofuel to replace fossil fuels.

Silva Green Fuel is presently constructing a demonstration plant to test groundbreaking production technology at the Statkraft Tofte site. The plant is to be built within the old storage building and is scheduled for launch during the autumn of 2021.

After a two-year validation period, the long-term goal is to benefit from the biomass value chain and build and operate a commercial biofuel facility. This plant could be ready for operations at the earliest in 2025 and would form the centre of the future Tofte industry cluster.
