Yilkins receives order to deliver torrefaction plant to Indian conglomerate Reliance
Yilkins is a renewable technology company focused on the valorization of biomass and organic residues into renewable energy and valuable industrial and chemical products. Yilkins' proprietary technology platform helps companies reduce their dependence on fossil fuels and reduce the environmental impact of their industrial operations.
Yilkins was founded in 2015 by Patrick Bergman (CTO) and Rob Voncken (CEO). Patrick has a background in research and development in biomass valorization and Rob has extensive international business experience in chemistry and materials including renewable fuels. The company initially developed an energy efficient technology to dry biomass, this platform was expanded in a second phase to carbonize biomass. It now employs 17 people.
In Ruurlo there is a demonstration plant in which all kinds of biomass (residues) can be tested to assess how suitable they are for drying and/or carbonization and where the optimal process settings are determined.
