SUSTAINABLE DEVELOPMENT

Changing How We Deal With Carbon

In development for over three years, the G2-Next Gen reactor is the latest in biochar production technology.

A step above the G1 series of reactors, the G2 has increased energy efficiency, producing a product that is high in carbon and low in contaminants.

Our objective is to provide a carbon storage solution in the form of a carbon negative renewable raw material that easily integrates into existing supply chains, as a substitute or as a new resolve. The idea is that products that we know and rely on today, like petroleum-based plastics could be made of biochar in the near future.

OBJECTIVE

Production of high-quality biochar using innovative, industry leading technology.

VISSION

Upcycling bio-residuals to create a valuable carbon storage option and support the growth of circular bioeconomies.

Technology

In research and development for over three years, the G2-Next Gen promotes innovative features such as further eliminating heavy metals and contaminants and greater flexibility in variety of biomass feedstock type and quality.

One G2-Next Gen reactor can process approximately 35 tonnes of biomass feedstock daily, producing 250 kg of biochar per hour of operation.

Biochar Production

Biochar is an organic, carbon rich material produced when carbonaceous materials undergo high temperature pyrolysis to produce a carbon product.

The G2-Next Gen biochar carbon content is above 80% with a typical BET surface area of 150 m2/g.

Known as carbon capture or carbon negative technology, biochar is a unique method of carbon sequestration whereby the biochar process expedites the decomposition of the bio-feedstock to carbon. This prevents carbon dioxide from entering the atmosphere, as it would have been released slowly by the decaying plant life. Our concept is to sequester the carbon before it enters the atmosphere, versus trying to capture the CO2 after it is airborne.

Known as a carbon negative product, biochar is an exciting material that can have a profound and positive impact on reducing carbon emissions through carbon sequestration. while increasing the health of our soil, food production and materials technology.

Variable Feedstock

Feedstock can include a variety of carbonaceous materials such as wood-based biomass, agricultural residuals, pulp sludge and municipal solid waste.

The G2-Next Gen technology directly addresses how we utilize our bio-residuals. With changing energy landscapes, and increases in production demand, the bio-residual market is rising. 

 

The G2-Next Gen re-directs “waste” materials from landfills, and fuel markets to create a high-value carbon sequestering alternative.

MATERIALS AND MARKETS

A new method of production for a new era of application.

Biochar opens the door to innovative and sustainable production. As a substitute for coal and charcoal, biochar can integrate into new and existing technologies. Commonly used in agriculture, new research and development is proving the seemingly endless application possibilities. Some of the readily available applications of biochar outside of agriculture include animal application, filtration, building materials, textiles, cosmetics, graphene production and carbon black substitutes.
