2012-02-23 14:17 STOCKHOLM/KÖPING, February 23, 2012 — The Swedish clean-tech company, Cortus, has succeeded for the first time, in a 500 kW gasification plant, to produce synthesis gas from biomass without traces of hydrocarbons. It has previously not been possible to produce completely pure biogas from biomass without generating impurities of hydrocarbons.
Open Innovation Project with the Nordic Council2011-12-08 09:30
Cortus has recently participated in an Open Innovation project, initiated by the Nordic Council. The project scope is to develop an open market place, where innovation, intellectual capital and property rights can be brokered, and to test the theories of Open Innovation.
Cortus submitted a challenge on char upgrading, which will further improve the efficiency of our WoodRoll® technology.
Cortus would like to thank the Nordic Council for the opportunity to participate in this project and also the Masters students from St. Petersburg University (SPU) in Russia that submitted creative and innovative solutions to our challenge.

2011-09-08 23:38 Cortus’ 500kW prototype of the WoodRoll® gasifier has successfully produced the first batch of green Syngas in tests in Stockholm. “These are extremely exciting times for us as we see a 500 kW system delivering first class Syngas for the first time. This is a significant step towards the full commercialization of our gasification technology”, says Cortus CEO Rolf Ljunggren.
2011-04-01 08:00 Cortus has acquired the business of consultancy company GEP Group on April 1, 2011 and therefore forms the subsidiary Cortus Engineering AB. The deal means that cooperation between Cortus and GEP on gasification technologies and projects has entered a new phase.
2011-02-18 11:20 The Swedish Energy Agency (Energimyndigheten) has decided to financially support the building of a plant for the gasification of biomass to green energy gas. The purpose is to gasify biomass in full scale in a new way to replace fossil fuels. Behind the patented process is the Swedish innovation company Cortus.
2011-02-03 14:44 Cortus is today announced as one of the finalists in the Nordic Cleantech Open competition of this years.
