Biomass to
bio-carbon

Generate your own bio-carbon stream? But with what? TorrCoal enables you to put renewables and recyclables into valuable energy. Use biomass residuals that are the direct by-product of agriculture or forestry, or even by-products of processing or consuming these primary biomass streams. Or recycle streams that contain carbon, like communal waste streams, solid recovered fuel and refuse-derived fuel.

Applications of TorrCoal technology

TorrCoal technology makes bio-carbon streams available to everyone. To entrepreneurs who believe in input of biomass in industrial processes. Who operate installations for steel, cement, asphalt production or petrochemicals. Who want to use bio-carbon for new installations or integrate torrefaction in existing settings. TorrCoal technology provides the green answer.

Circular and
biobased economy

The majority of mankind agrees that climate change is an urgent danger. However, different viewpoints exist on to how address the climate problem. TorrCoal strongly believes in the principles of the circular and biobased economy. A viewpoint shared by many businesses, governments, institutes and promoted by NGO’s like the Ellen MacArthur Foundation.

Circular

TorrCoal regards the circular economy as an economic system where the loops are closed. The value of raw materials, components and products is maximized to its fullest potential. The power of renewable energy is used. Each loop is considered to be a system and every element is a part of this same system. No real waste exists here, only recyclables. Bio-carbon streams now can be available to everyone.

Biobased

Embedded within the circular economy is the biobased economy, an economic system that utilises crops, agricultural residuals and food residuals for non-food applications. Biomass is used for production of materials, chemicals, transport, fuels, and energy. Drivers are sustainability, economic chances, securing energy supply and the improvement of agriculture. Fossil resources are replaced with their biologic counterparts called renewables.

Best available technology

With TorrCoal technology you can utilise normally unsuitable rest streams as a renewable fuel, raw material or additive. Our technology delivers a constant bio-carbon energy stream to your fossil coal-based installation. Everywhere where wood and agro residuals are sufficiently available. That is what we offer: licensing the best available torrefaction process technology, engineering expertise, market know-how and first-hand user experience.
