A NEW WAY OF Looking ATDECENTRALISEDWASTE-TO-ENERGY,
FOCUSED ONSOCIAL and SUSTAINABLE IMPACT.

what We do at pyropower

By 2050, our global population is expected to reach 10 billion, which means
billions more mouths to feed, billions more demanding energy,
and billions more producing trash.

How can we use this knowledge to our advantage and be part of the global solution?

WASTE

Waste is not redundant, it as abundant. Organic waste is one of the largest sources of pollution, while losing valuable stored nutrients and energy. At Pyropower, we look at projects that can take in organic waste to close the loop towards a more circular economy.

ENERGY

Energy remains the biggest resource for livelihood and biggest cause of anthropogenic climate change, while many people in the world still lack basic access. Renewable energy sources, like solar and wind, have become cheaper but they alone cannot tackle the existing trajectory. At our core, we aim to assist bringing energy technology to communities everywhere.

AGRICULTURE

80% of energy consumption in agriculture comes from fertilisers. Intensive chemical use degrades our land at an alarming rate - land which would otherwise be growing our food, materials and biofuels. We aim to reverse the problems in land nutrition and soil productivity in the long run.

PROJECTS

We believe in the power of global knowledge.
That is why Pyropower was founded on implementing our projects around the world, to the people and places who need it the most.
THE DUTCH circular economy

From the founder's experiences with smallholder coffee farmers in Indonesia - a new found passion for coffee was formed! When looking at what type of waste is produced back home in the Netherlands - 300 million kilos of coffee grounds each year! The aim of Pyropower is to process the thousands of tons of spent coffee grounds turning waste into clean energy, biochar and sustainable products, done alongside the wonderful Dutch (circular economy) ecosystem. Pyropower aims to give coffee a second life that will will reduce it's overall CO2 footprint.

PYROPOWER FOR MALAWI

Kuwunika in Chichewa, the national language of Malawi means “To illuminate”, which is what Pyropower sounds like in Malawi. Pyropower is working with people in Malawi, for the people of Malawi, to provide them access to energy which iin a way which is affordable, sustainable and clean. This comes in the form the community need most for basic livihood needs - Heat for cooking, lighting and mobile phone charging. This project is continued to this day, alongside CEHSP, our local partners in Malawi.

THE FARMERS oF INDONESIA

Pyropower has implemented a portable energy-producing device (open source) which allows smallholder farmers to manage crop waste, diverting it from open-burning and get involved in the biochar market. We started on a small island in Lombok in the Southern Peninsula of Indonesia, where smallholder farmers (less than 2 hectares each) are engaged in coffee, cocoa, casava and candlenuts, rice and tobacco production.

Learn about the Biochar Base

Biochar is used in many different ways and affects many people and sectors on this planet; including waste, energy, agriculture, food, sustainable materials and carbon capture. On the Biochar Base, we discuss all possible uses, including the people and companies that produce biochar, and a place where people can buy, sell or trade biochar and carbon credits. For more information about the biochar base, contact us through the site.
