More energy produced per ton of biomass fuel used
In order to help industrial users gain a better understanding of the advantages of biocoal, Airex can supply torrefied wood pellets samples anywhere in the world to perform test burns, ranging from a few kilograms to several thousand tons. Airex’s biocoal pellets have been successfully tested in Canada, U.S.A., Europe, Japan, Australia and New Zealand.
A sustainable solution for carbon sequestration
Biochar is commonly used as a natural and organic soil amendment. When incorporated into soils, the carbon contained in biochar can be stored for hundreds of years, preventing it from degrading and being released back into the atmosphere. Carbon can also be sequestered when biochar is used in building materials and carbon-negative concrete.
Engineered green carbon product specifically developed for the metallurgical industry.
Thanks to its high fixed carbon and low volatile matter content, biocarbon is a renewable biomass solution to decarbonize the metallurgical industry.
