29-Jul-2016 - Niels Overgaard, managing director of our Torftech Energy business has relocated to Singapore.  The ability of the TORBED reactors to process troublesome biomass wastes from crops such as oil palm and rice and produce not only heat and power but by-products with significant value gives us a novel angle from which to address the Asian market.

Carbon bonus

29-Jul-2016 - MZEC, the district heating company at Swidnice in Poland, uses a TORBED gasifier to generate heat from biomass, alongside its fleet of conventional coal-fired boilers.  When fired with straw, this EBR produces a significant quantity of biochar, which has commercial uses in soil remediation and improvement.  Several tonnes of biochar have been sold and more is on order, giving MZEC a significant stream of additional income from a valuable by-product.
