CARBON FOOT­PRINT

In the age of “decar­bo­niz­a­tion”, does the carbo­niz­a­tion of biomass not sound forward-looking to you? Rest assured, the exact oppo­site is the case. In contrast to the use of lignite or hard coal or burning the input mate­rial, the gentle carbo­niz­a­tion in the PYREG process is active climate protec­tion. When the natural mate­rial carbo­nizes, a large part of the carbon is perma­nently bound in the carbo­nizates. If the carbo­nizates are then worked into the soil as biochar, ferti­lizer or inte­grated into buil­ding mate­rials as carbon fibre, the carbon is removed from the atmo­s­phere for centu­ries.

With a PYREG Stan­dard Unit P500, appro­xi­mately 250 tonnes of biochar can be produced per year. Used as a soil condi­tioner, the same amount of CO2 per year can be bound as with 80,000 trees.

ENVI­RON­MENTAL FACTS AT A GLANCE

The PYREG systems are compact, decen­tra­lized systems that can be inte­grated easily into exis­ting mate­rial cycles and infra­st­ruc­ture. Due to the CO2 sequestra­tion and the produc­tion of reus­able energy they are not only econo­mi­c­ally but also envi­ron­ment­ally the write solu­tion.
