Our Concept For A Circular Economy

Nearly 10,000 tons of waste from a winery is turned into 3,000 tons of valuable biochar every year.

Recovery of biomass waste streams and grey water from food processing avoids disposal and creates an additional income, while providing a source of greener energy. In the process of biochar production, energy is released and used to provide heat to local district heating network. The renewable heat is an additional product to biochar and can help the nearby region and industries to reduce their carbon footprint while saving money by using a cheaper form of energy. Additionally, in Germany, a client that uses renewable heat will not be subject to future increases in energy taxes.

The use of biochar in soils is improving soil conditions so that higher yields can be achieved with less fertilizer input.

3,500 m³ of valuable Grey Water is recovered from the winemaking process before disposal.

This water is used to refine the produced biochar and to recover valuable nutrition and minerals, such as phosphorous. Biochar is then sold as a feed supplement for animal fodder and as organic fertilizer or soil conditioner. The use of biochar in soils is improving soil conditions so that higher yields can be achieved with less fertilizer input.

Biochar is a tool for CO2 sequestration. 1 ton of biochar is equal to ca. 3.6 tons of CO2 sequestered. Used in soils it further reduces nitrous oxide (N2O) emissions by 50%. (Source: “Biochar for Environmental Management”) Nitrous oxide has an impact factor on climate change of 294 times in comparison with CO2. In total, the CO2 footprint is reduced by 6,000 tons per year by replacing fossil fuel. Circular Carbon helps to compensate Scope 3 emissions by enabling emission reduction claims from effective use of biochar.
