We firmly believe in torrefaction: a process that makes the world more sustainable by producing high-value bio-carbon. A process that worked in a laboratory and that we have perfected into our own TorrCoal technology. The result of extensive in house development. With our technology, you can build your own torrefaction plant.
With a torrefaction application you can generate your own sustainable carbon streams. You can utilise normally unsuitable rest streams as a renewable heat source, raw material or additive. Everywhere where bio-residuals are sufficiently available. Because that is what we offer: licensing torrefaction process technology, engineering expertise, market know-how and first-hand user experience.
Heating industrial processes
To aid the energy transition, companies can use our bio-carbon or integrate our torrefaction technology into their existing production plant. This for the purpose to heat furnaces in production processes.
Carbon sink and products
Bio-carbon can be a ready-to-use material for applications to create renewable products. Bio-carbon improves the product properties and at the same time preserves carbon atoms (carbon sink). Known applications are for instance composites in construction, soil improvement in agriculture and the (bio-)plastic industry (fillers and fibers).
A promising example
Thanks to our collaboration with Chemelot Innovation and Learning Labs (CHILL), we managed to make this 3D printed vase which is a 100% biobased composite of PLA (polylactic acid biopolymer) and bio-carbon. It demonstrates that our bio-carbon can be incorporated successfully to a polymer matrix. It is yet another very promising example of a carbon sink application!
Raw material for chemical processes
Bio-carbon can provide sustainable carbon atoms as an alternative for fossil resources. Torrefaction enables the production of a highly homogeneous material of a constant quality, which is used as raw material for chemical processes, like bio-refinery, gasification and pyrolysis. In the steel industry it can also act as a fossil-free reducing agent.
We believe in the power of bio-carbon solutions. A clean and consistent way to charge your industrial installations. What if you could produce your own renewable carbon stream? What if you could use this as a cleaner carbon source in your existing fossil coal-based installations? Or as a more sustainable source of carbon atoms for steel production? Or as a fossil carbon replacement in general? Or as carbon sink? Now you can. With TorrCoal.
