Dynamotive starts production in Guelph

By Nicholas Zeman
Distributed power company Dynamotive Inc., based in Vancouver, British Columbia, announced its successful production of bio-oil from wood waste at its newly built plant in Guelph, Ontario, this spring. The company is currently working toward full commission of the facility. Dynamotive will be producing a grade of bio-oil, marketed as "BioOil Plus," that is considered to be a more refined version of the company's previous products and a competitive alternative to heating oil, fuel oil, natural gas and propane. Dynamotive CEO Andrew Kingston said that through the exploitation of raw materials like wood waste and agricultural residues, the renewable fuels industry can accelerate the adoption of cellulose-based fuels.
