TorrCoal - For a fossil free future

Why torrefaction?

TorrCoal believes bio-carbon should replace fossil coal, because it is one of the most polluting energy sources we have. We want to avoid climate-damaging CO2 emissions from fossil fuels. Because the world needs an eco-friendly alternative to energize our industries: torrefaction.

Bio-carbon: For a Fossil Free Future

Carbon atoms are indispensable building blocks in every day life. To stop unwanted climate change, we need to replace the fossil carbon we currently use. Because bio-carbon is non-fossil, it is a solution for a sustainable future. With torrefaction, you can produce a bio-carbon to create an eco-friendly industry.

Who should use torrefaction?

TorrCoal technology makes bio-carbon solutions available to those who believe in renewable natural resources. To those who value maximizing profit just as much as minimizing carbon footprint. To those who believe in input of bio-residuals in industrial processes.

How does torrefaction work?

Torrefaction is the thermochemical conversion of bio-residuals in an oxygen-free environment. It generates a solid material with increased energy density and carbon content. So, the heat is on!

See for yourself

TorrCoal was one of the first to embrace torrefaction and we never let go. We examined and investigated. We gained a lot of knowledge. Knowledge that we want to share with you. That is why we designed and built our own plant. One of the largest operational torrefaction factories in the world. Do you want to reduce CO2 emissions and keep your fossil coal-based assets running at the same time? Don’t know how? Visit our plant and we will show you how.
