CARBON FOOT­PRINT

In the age of “decar­bo­ni­sa­tion”, does the carbo­ni­sa­tion 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, the gentle carbo­ni­sa­tion in the PYREG process is active climate protec­tion. When the natural mate­rial carbo­nises, a large part of the carbon is perman­ently bound in the carbo­nate. If the carbo­nate is then worked into the soil as biochar or inte­grated into buil­ding mate­rials as carbon fibre, the carbon is removed from the atmo­s­phere for centu­ries.

With a PYREG P500 System, appro­xi­mately 300 tonnes of biochar can be produced per year. As a soil improver intro­duced into the soil, the same amount of CO2 per year can be bound as with 80,000 trees.
