Production of renewable energy and simultaneous CO2- sequestration from the atmosphere due to biochar production and application
The Project presents a new technical solution to reduce CO2 in the atmosphere and generate energy from biomass by producing biochar with the use of the pyrolysis process of wood and wood residue. The biochar will be used in an innovative way for animal feed and as the soil supplement, thus contributing to the combined reduction of methane production from manure. In that way, the positive effects of biochar are cumulative, such as improving animal health and growth, and increasing the fertilizing value of manure. The project’s benefits are multiple: economic empowerment (it triggers a new industry in the rural area), support to organic agriculture, etc).
