It’s about time!
Managing director Peter Burgess says wheat straw would provide the raw material for the plant.
“The project will take wheat straw, large square bales of wheat straw, and convert that into biochar.”
“We’re just finishing the detailed design of the plant and we expect to start building something later this year.”
Mr Burgess says he would expect the Kalannie plant to be up and running by the end of the year.
The company has partnered with Crucible Carbon to develop the pyrolysis technology and will build a demonstration node at Kalannie later this year. The node will process 10,000 tonnes of waste plant material per year until the demonstration is successful and will then process 50,000 tonnes per year.
