About us

In many cases, biowaste ends up in landfill, especially in developing regions, polluting the planet while losing valuable stored energy. Waste is not redudant, but it as abundant. This is an opportunity, where waste can be processed and harnessed, we step in to create value.

Energy remains the biggest cause of anthropogenic climate change. And although energy is essential for all aspects of life, around the world, many regions still lack safe, reliable sources of energy.

80% of energy consumption in agriculture comes from fertilisers. Intensive chemical use degrades our earth at an alarming rate - land which would otherwise be growing our food, materials and biofuels would be lost forever. We aim to reverse the problems in land nutrition and soil productivity and promote long-term sustainable agricultural processes.
At Pyropower, we believe in a future where energy no longer divides, destroys and depletes. We envision a future where energy is available to everyone irrespective of their caste, nationality or financial state while sustaining nature altogether.

The power of global knowledge and milieu is our greatest gift today. That is why Pyropower aims to reach as many regions and communities as there are energy and environmental problems to solve.

We are a team of dreamers with different nationalities, backgrounds and perspectives, but we chase the same dream of a clean, sustainable and abundant future.
