The article reports that Forschungszentrum Karlsruhe GmbH (FZK) and Lurgi AG in Germany have inaugurated the first stage of a joint research plant for the generation of fuels from biomass. The concept of a decentralised pyrolysis in upstream units offers farmers the benefit of reducing transport costs, thanks to lower transport volumes. Lurgi and FZK signed the cooperation contract for the first part of the two-stage pilot plant in August 2006.
