Inaugural Biochar and Activated Carbon Conference-Claremorris
October 25, 2018 @ 9:30 am - 4:30 pm
The Irish Bioenergy Association and the Western Development Commission invites you to a Biochar and Activated Carbon Conference in Mayo.
This event will build understanding, raise awareness and help showcase the potential for carbon. Visiting partners from the RE-DIRECT project will present on installed technology at two sites in Germany and Wales.
The RE-DIRECT project is funded by the INTERREG North-West Europe (NWE) Programme which started in September 2016. It aims to bring together biomass waste producers, industries and research organisations to develop a new circular economy.
The project will assess a number of feedstocks for their suitability to be pyrolysed and converted into biochar and activated carbon using the technology named “Integrated Generation of Solid Fuel and Biogas from Biomass (IFBB)”
The goal is to convert 20.000t of unused biomass into carbon products. The project involves eleven partners from Belgium, Germany, France, Ireland and the United Kingdom who are currently implementing the approach in five NWE regions.
