Bioendev appoints new CEO

Swedish torrefaction technology company Bioendev appoints Johan Berggren as CEO.

Bioendev, a Swedish torrefaction technology development company based in Umeå, has appointed Johan Berggren as CEO. Berggren has been developing Bioendev’s sales and marketing, primarily in the Nordic countries and the UK. Prior to joining Bioendev, Berggren has held senior business development and marketing positions in Nordic wind energy projects as well as CEO of two Swedish forestry machinery manufacturers.

– Johan has the experience that is required as the company now enters into a phase of strong market expansion. I’m very pleased that he has joined, said Göran Ernstson, Chairman of the Board of Directors in Bioendev and CEO of majority shareholder Umeå Energi, a municipality owned energy utility.

– As Bioendev now moves onto commercialisation I believe that Johan Berggren’s extensive knowledge and experience in the processing of biomass, ranging from various types of raw materials to technology, sales and management will be a perfect match, said former CEO Anders Frisk,who will move on to working as a consultant in the cleantech and sustainability sector.

Together with partners and funding support from the Swedish Energy Agency, the company has recently completed its industrial demonstration unit (IDU) in Holmsund. The purpose of the 16 ooo tonne per annum capacity black pellet plant is to verify commercial-scale proof of concept, demonstrate the technology solutions for process control and product quality.
