Board of Directors
Glommen Technology AS was established in 2017 as a continuation of R&D projects within Glommen Skog (now Glommen Mjøsen Skog). The R&D projects leading directly to the present technology started in 2012. Innovation Norway has funded a significant part of these R&D projects.
Glommen Skog’s first R&D project within the basic technology, auto hydrolysis, started already in 1989. Glommen sold the project company Cambi AS in 1992. Today the company is a world leader within thermal hydrolysis of municipal sludge and organic waste.
The world’s first wood pellets plant using auto hydrolysis as pretreatment before pelleting was built in 1996, based on knowhow from the original R&D project. The continuation of the plant is today owned by Arbaflame AS.
In 2009 Glommen Skog sold a patent for pretreatment before making pellets to USA, leading to Zilkha Black™ Pellets, presently owned by NextGen Biomass Technologies, Houston, Texas, USA.
