The new system, using containerised bulk handling and then tipping the contents into the holds of bulk carriers, is claimed to quadruple productivity of biomass loading.

Demand for biomass has been increasing, and RUT has been handling growing quantities of sunflower pellets, wood pellets and wood chips, but was looking for innovative ways to cope with the demand, while still being cost-competitive.
