Understanding Pyrolysis

Pyrolysis is the transformation of organic material (biomass) at high temperatures without oxygen. It converts biomass into biochar, a stable carbon-rich product that is resistant to breaking down, along with bio-oil and syngas that are used to generate renewable energy. 


Our process operates under controlled conditions that are optimised to maximise biochar yield, quality and permanence.

Mechanism of Carbon Removal

Biochar produced through pyrolysis effectively sequesters carbon, removing it from the carbon cycle for 100s to 1000s of years.


Unlike the original biomass that decomposes rapidly, releasing CO2 back into the atmosphere, biochar is highly stable. Its porous structure and chemical makeup resist breaking down, locking carbon in a solid form.


When applied to soil, biochar not only prevents carbon release but also indirectly reduces greenhouse gas emissions by improving soil health and reducing the need for synthetic fertilisers.

Advantages of Biochar Pyrolysis Technology

Biochar pyrolysis distinguishes itself as a scalable, ready-to-deploy carbon removal strategy, with the potential to eliminate up to 2 billion tons of CO2 by 2050 (IPCC). Our technology leverages diverse biomass sources for carbon sequestration and offers various solutions, from soil improvement to renewable energy production.


Environmentally, it reduces greenhouse gases and enhances soil health, supporting regenerative agriculture and bolstering food security.


Socially, it drives local economies and sustainable practices.


Our biochar pyrolysis technology presents a multifaceted solution for immediate environmental and social benefits, marking a significant step toward a net-zero future.
