One of the biggest waste management problems we face stems from the organic sector. In many cases, biowaste is burnt or end up in landfills, especially in developing regions, polluting the planet while losing valuable stored energy. Waste is not redudant, but it as abundant. and We see this as a huge opportunity - where biomass can be processed and harnessed, while reducing the impact on the environment to help regain It's original stature.
Energy remains the biggest cause of anthropogenic climate change. in recent years, Renewable energy sources, like solar and wind, have become cheaper and more accessible but they alone cannot counter the effects caused by traditional energy production. that is why we want to unleash the full potential of bioenergy and do what we did for renewables - reduce costs and decentralise to make bioenergy accesible for everyone, everywhere.
In agriculture, 80% of energy consumption still comes from fertilisers. Such intensive and extensive usage of chemicals today is unsustainable and degrading our earth at an alarming global rate - land which would otherwise be growing our food, materials and biofuels would be lost forever in the long run. Pyropower works hard to reverse the problems faced in land nutrition and soil producitvity, and even restore deforested regions.
Kuwunkia in Chichewa, the national language of Malawi means “To illuminate”.
Pyropower is working with people in Malawi, for the people of Malawi, to provide them access to energy which is affordable, sustainable and Clean. This comes in the form of energy the community need most for basic livihood needs - Heat for clean cooking, lighting and mobile phone charging.
Pyropower is working on a portable energy-producing device which can funnction as a heater to dry plants crops. The possibilities are endless and pyropower is trying to optimise the product to make it the most effective and robust. We are planning to launch this in Indonesia, where off-grid, agriculture communities are largely located.
One of the major producer of bio-waste are breweries. breweries are also aware of their environmental impact and so, elav brewery, a craft beer brewery based in bergamo, italy, in collaboration with us, is trying to find a truly green solution to this waste disposal problem, while providing biochat for the elav agricultural society.
Pyrolysis is decomposition of organic product, which releases the volatiles within the biomass, under high temperatures, and most importantly, in the absence of oxygen. Unlike normal combustion and gasification, pyrolysis can captures the carbon after decomposition of organic matter thus, allowing our energy solution to be a carbon negative process, which is more important now more than ever.
Biochar is a charcoal rich in carbon, formed after pyrolysis of biomass in absent of oxygen. Theoretically, experts argue, biochar could sequester billions of tons of carbon dioxide every year, capturing 12 % of carbon equivalents released by human activities each year. The biochar market is also expected to grow to double it's size in the next 5 years, ensuring us that we are the cusp of it's potential.
