The fact that the pyrolysis oil is now ISCC-certified means that it can be sold on export markets outside of Sweden.

It feels great that we have certified our production and product in accordance with ISCC. This is proof that our pyrolysis oil meets high standards for sustainability and traceability throughout the entire supply chain, said Pontus Friberg, Chairman of Pyrocell.

Pyrocell is jointly owned by wood processing major Setra Group and oil refiner Preem AB.

The company’s business concept is to produce bio-oil from sawdust supplied by Setra and supply this as a feedstock to Preem for co-processing at its refineries.

The pyrolysis oil is refined into renewable diesel- and gasoline at Preem’s refinery in Lysekil. Pyrocell’s facility is located at the Setra Kastet sawmill in Gävle.

The ISCC certification increases Pyrocell’s competitiveness, and we can thereby, together with Preem, offer the pyrolysis oil to customers outside of Sweden. This means we will be able to replace fossil oil and contribute to an increased proportion of renewables – for example in a fuel that produces lower carbon dioxide emissions – even beyond Sweden’s borders, ended Pontus Friberg.
