Significant savings by measuring actual energy content of forest biomass

Inray and UPM have demonstrated that using x-ray technology to measure the quality of incoming bio fuel can radically improve the quality management of the fuel supply chain. The new system provides real-time information of each load, which also enables fast feedback to the fuel supplier.

UPM has calculated that by using new quality information and developing the supply chains together with suppliers it could be possible to get 30% more energy from the amount of raw material used currently.
