Produces biochar from organic residues

GLOBAL GOALS:

TheGlobalGoals_Icons_Color_Goal_2
Biochar increases the soil’s water and nutrient-holding capacity, which in turn increases the arable land’s production.
TheGlobalGoals_Icons_Color_Goal_3
When organic residues are treated using pyrolysis and returned to the arable land in the form of biochar,
the influx of cadmium to the soil decreases.
TheGlobalGoals_Icons_Color_Goal_6
Biochar reduces nutrient runoff to the sea and can improve the quality of the storm water.
TheGlobalGoals_Icons_Color_Goal_7
The pyrolysis process generates a renewable energy service in the form of district heating.
TheGlobalGoals_Icons_Color_Goal_9
Biochar’s potential at present is far from fully mapped out and there are a number of possible innovation steps.
TheGlobalGoals_Icons_Color_Goal_11
Society’s organic residues are being converted into beneficial products.
TheGlobalGoals_Icons_Color_Goal_12
Organic residues with high levels of environmentally hazardous substances are being taken and
converted into beneficial products with low levels of environmentally hazardous substances.
TheGlobalGoals_Icons_Color_Goal_13
Biochar degrades very slowly, making it a stable carbon sink.
TheGlobalGoals_Icons_Color_Goal_14
By converting algae and seaweed to biochar, the amount of pollution in the sea can be reduced.
TheGlobalGoals_Icons_Color_Goal_15
Biochar improves the water-holding capacity of the soil, which has a positive effect
on the biodiversity of drought-prone urban ecosystems.
TheGlobalGoals_Icons_Color_Goal_17
The production of clean and safe biochar from organic waste requires collaboration.

OUR VISION

We are driving progress towards a climate-smart, sustainable and circular society by developing solutions to minimise the environmental and climate impact of society’s organic residues while simultaneously creating sought-after beneficial products and carbon storage. The goal? A greener and healthier world.

REST TILL BÄST

Rest till Bäst is a Vinnova-funded project whose purpose is to develop solutions for managing society’s organic residues and create a much needed beneficial product, while at the same time minimising environmental and climate impact.
