CharTech Solutions’ proprietary High Temperature Pyrolysis (HTP) technology transforms challenging organic waste streams (biomass, biosolids, digestate) into three renewable and valuable outputs by heating the materials at high temperatures in the absence of oxygen.
The HTP process converts a portion of the organic feedstock into a high-calorific value and hydrogen-rich syngas. This syngas can be applied in a variety of ways; offsetting natural gas consumption for industrial processes, as well as the generation of power, green hydrogen, and Renewable Natural Gas (RNG).
The HTP process is autothermal, creates its own energy, and therefore does not need external heat sources. Excess energy is generated from the process, resulting in a carbon negative process for organic waste streams.
The remaining solids after the HTP process are converted into a solid carbon product called biocarbon. It can be used as a Biochar fertilizer and soil amendment product that improves soil health and sequesters carbon (qualifying for carbon credits), as a pollutant filter (activated charcoal, SulfaCHARTM), and as a biocoal product (CleanFyreTM). Biocarbons can offset the use of resource intensive alternatives, and fixes carbon long-term in a stable form. When used as a biocoal (CleanFyreTM) to offset fossil coal used in industrial processes, CleanFyreTM drastically reduces GHG emissions – ideal for decarbonizing large industries including steel and cement.
Key Benefits of High Temperature Pyrolysis Technology
High Temperature Pyrolysis (HTP) systems can manage organic waste streams reducing the total mass by up to 90% eliminating associated transportation and management challenges as well as costs. The HTP outputs reduce carbon emissions further by generating carbon sequestering/offsetting biocarbons (biochar), excess heat, and renewable energy.
