The RE-DIRECT project, funded by the North West Europe programme, has published its first newsletter. This project will promote the efficient use of natural resources and materials by converting residual biomass into carbon products and activated carbon at smart regional decentralised units.
This newsletter outlines the projects participation at the North West Europe programme seminar in Lille in December 2016, and the first project partner meeting in January in Bonn, Germany, and the visit to PYREG in Dörth, Germany. PYREG is a German manufacturer of small decentralised dry carbonisation units and is one of the potential manufacturers for the investments during the project. The existing PYREG plant, the PYREG 500, can convert approx. 1400 t of biomass per year into 300 t of biochar. In addition, it delivers 150 kW of thermal energy.
