IMAGINE A WORLD WITHOUT FOSSIL FUEL
01 / SIMPLE
A simple solution independent on hydrogen and catalysts. Our disruptive technology is best described as pressurized "cooking" of biomass in alcohol. At just the right reaction conditions this results in direct liquefaction of the biomass into a stable oil product with reduced oxygen content.
02 / SUSTAINABLE
We rely on converting non-edible plant material only. This makes our process 100% sustainable and fully CO2 neutral. Our technology has the potential to replace fossil derived fuels and chemicals.
03 / SCALABLE
A truly scalable energy solution needs a nearly infinite feedstock supply. Lignin, found in quantities up to 35% of all plant biomass, is such a feedstock. Lignin is a massively underutilized resource which from nature's side is inherently difficult to convert. Kvasir Technologies proprietary technology solves just that!
Kvasir Technologies is a spin-out company from the Technical University of Denmark. Our team includes the inventor of the proprietary liquefaction technology and strong competencies in sustainable development and oil and shipping.
We envision a future independent on fossil derived products. Batteries and fuel cells are part of the solution but liquid biofuels and biochemicals will still contribute to a substantial market. Biobased chemicals and fuels need to be based on a scalable and sustainable feedstock - lignin. That is where Kvasir's disruptive technology comes into the picture!
Kvasir comes from Old Norse with references to Norse mythology and the word literally means squeezing the juice out of something (very similar to Danish, at kvase). Our name both honours our Nordic ancestors while at the same time describes our proprietary technology really well: Direct liquefaction of biomass.
