Centre for Carbon Negative Impact
TerraWatt Regenerative and WUR aim to install an R&D carbonization machine from Pyreg on the ACRRES site in Lelystad for research purposes in the course of next year. This machine is very suitable for the production of biochar and activated carbon samples from various waste and residual flows.
The samples will be used in various research setups assessing how biochar can be effectively applied in agriculture, construction, chemistry or other sectors in which the use of bio-based raw materials is promoted.
- Carbonisation could storage large quantities of Carbon
- Carbon Negativity is a possibilit
Partners in the project
- Wageningen University & Research Centre
- Five different partner from many sectors are partner in the project
The environment which we rely on is in disrepair. TerraWatt Regenerative focuses on restoring environmental quality, ecosystem health and biodiversity through the use of advanced pyrolysis and carbon negative certification. This approach creates benefits for soil health, water management, pollinator species, pest resistance and is commercially viable for all stakeholders
To research the potential of biochar for various applications
Please join us in our journey towards a carbon-neutral economy. We can support you in making your supply chain carbon neutral or even carbon negative. Even if today you already manage your biomass waste or rest streams in a carbon neutral way, we would very much like to explore with you if we can make your process even carbon negative at a lower cost!
Fossil fuels are carbon positive; they add more carbon dioxide (CO2) and other greenhouse gasses to the air. Ordinary biomass fuels are carbon neutral; the carbon captured in the biomass by photosynthesis would have eventually returned to the atmosphere through natural processes like decomposition. Carbon negative technology and thinking transforms the carbon in biomass waste into stable biochar which can remain sequestered in soils or other products. Wooden and carbonated building materials also act as a carbon sink but have a lifetime of 50-100 years after which the CO2 will return into the atmosphere unless the material will be recycled and reused in construction. The result is a net removal of CO2 in the atmosphere. This is where the research comes in.
