Torrefied Wood Manufacturing
Thermogen is a manufacturing company that employs a proprietary microwave technology to produce torrefied wood products for commercial energy generation by utilities.
Burning standard fossil coal, a non-renewable fuel, burdens public utilities and communities by producing noxious emissions and exceeding regulatory goals for reduction of greenhouse gasses in the atmosphere.
Thermogen Industries manufactures an economical, sustainable and carbon-neutral torrefied wood fuel that can supplement the use of coal in existing facilities, reduce harmful emissions and meet newer, more stringent clean air standards.
Our torrefaction process involves changing the properties of wood using microwave technology, not heat. Microwaving the wood creates a product which burns cleaner and has the same BTU heat output as coal.
Our clean fuel called Aurora Black® offers advantages for specific applications and meets the Federal definition of a Renewable and Alternative Fuel, and significantly reduces sulfur oxides, nitrogen oxides, and greenhouse gas emissions.
Co-Exists with Coal
Aurora Black® functions seamlessly alongside other solid fuels, such as coal or by itself to optimize performance and reduce costs. It provides improved boiler efficiency and performance, and is compatible with existing equipment.
