ANd Biochar economy
Our latest technology developments surround the notion of an idea organic circular economy. This aligns with the transition to a more sustainable and abundant future.
The solutions we offer:
1. Waste management for small-to-medium scale entreprises with some sort of organic waste in their streams. (10 - 300 kg a week)
2. Decentralised heat energy production for farmers and crop producers.
3. Apply biochar in best practices way in agriculture, water filtration, afforestation projects around the world.
Pyrolysis in simple terms
Heating biomass between 300°C and 500°C in the absence of oxygen releases energy stored in the organic material in terms of heat. Leaving biochar as byproduct, which is rich in carbon, hydrogen, sulphur, oxygen, nitrogen as well as minerals in ash fraction. The heat can be converted into other forms of energy such as electricity using an external electricial generators further down the process.
TECHNOLOGY FOR SOCIETY
Energy for Everyone
"Access to energy underlies the basic liveihood of humanity" - United Nations
One example is the Tumbuh kiln. Which can output 20 kW of useful heat using 5kg of wood pellets every hour. Which can be converted to 1kW of electricty with a modular steam turbine. This is enough to power a living space in most developing and developed nations. In poor regions, light and mobile-phone charging to improve connectivity take precedence.

Each type of biomass is unique
An integral part of our work is understanding the science behind the biomass. We study different types of feedstock available in each geographical location within each community and we look at the feedstock characteristics to estimate the calorific value and the energy that nature allows us to produce sustainability. We adapt our technology the device to various regions with different biomass properties, energy requirements and cultural ideas.
We are building a comprehensive database by consolidating feedstock information. This database lets you input parameters and calculates immediately the value for your specific energy and biochar needs.
We capture carbon from the atmosphere and store it back into the ground for thousand of years, where it belongs.
Pyropower's technology and efforts assure us that we as a company are carbon negative. This means we confront climate change head-on, reversing it and purifying the toxic environment.
The World Health Organization calculates that 2.5 million deaths around the world are related to indoor air pollution, our device does not emit volatiles but instead sustains a smokeless flame. Smoke is just unburnt fuel, so we optimise the energy within the feedstock to it's full potential.
An organic conditioner for our EarthWe launched our biochar 2020
Simply put, it is charcoal (rich in carbon) produced from plant or organic matter and stored in the soil as a means of removing carbon dioxide from the atmosphere. Biochar is an approach to carbon sequestration as it has the potential to help mitigate climate change. Independently, biochar can increase soil fertility of acidic soils (low pH soils), increase agricultural productivity, and provide protection against some foliar and soil-borne diseases.
For us, biochar is an important tool to increase food security and cropland diversity in areas with severely depleted soils, scarce organic resources and inadequate water. It also improves water quality and quantity by increasing soil retention of nutrients and agrochemicals for plant and crop utilization. More nutrients stay in the soil instead of leaching into groundwater and causing pollution. This means that developing countries benefit with more abundant and diverse agricultural production, worrying less about yield and increasing (economic) security, while Europe and the U.S can rely much less on water and chemical fertilisers to grow their crops, facilitating the modern urban-farming industry by the same token. Biochar also plays a huge rule in our circular economy ideals. Currently, farmers pay a substaintiable amount to rid of agirculture waste when they can be converted to biochar through our device, enhancing yield and ergonomics.We are working alongside the goals of the Internation Biochar Initiative (IBI), an institute that provides a platform for fostering, good industry practices, and environmental ethical standards to support biochar systems that are safe and economically viable. With the goal of reaching the one billion tons of biochar produced per year within 50 years.
