CHAR Reports Woody Biomass-to-RNG, Biocoal Progress (Ind. Report)
CHAR Technologies
Date: 2021-11-05
Toronto-headquartered CHAR Technologies is reporting surveying and geotechnical testing at the proposed site of its woody-biomass to renewable natural gas (RNG) High Temperature Pyrolysis project near Kirkland Lake, Ontario, is underway. The proposed facility will produce 500,000 gigajoules per year of RNG and 10,000 tpy of "Cleanfyre" biocoal from woody-biomass.

CleanFyre is an innovative, carbon-neutral, sustainable, solid biofuel (biocoal) that meets the strict requirements of a wide variety of industries. The substitution of CleanFyre for fossil coal in many industrial processes allows clients to recognize significant GHG reductions. On a life-cycle basis, GHG emissions can typically be reduced by over 90 pct per tonne of CleanFyre used, according to the company.

The Company anticipates a long-term RNG offtake contract with a Canadian gas utility company will be finalized by early 2022. CleanFyre from the proposed Kirkland Lake facility will be earmarked for future sale to the steel making and metal smelting industries.

CHAR Technologies Ltd. specializes in organic waste pyrolysis and biocarbon development, custom equipment for industrial air and water treatment, and providing services in environmental management, site investigation and remediation, engineering, environmental compliance and resource efficiency.

WA State Woody Biomass Power Projects Funded (Funding Report)
San Juan Islands Conservation District
Date: 2019-11-13
San Juan Islands Conservation District in Washington State is reporting receipt of $181,882 in grant matching funding from the Washington Department of Commerce Forest Products Financial Assistance Program for wood energy projects. On Nov. 5, the agency funded four proposed projects that provide heat, power, engineered fuel products and/or significant energy efficiency improvements.

This proposal includes a technology assessment, site analysis and conceptual design of an advanced wood energy microgrid gasifier system to generate heat and power for community facilities on Orcas.

The Forest Products Financial Assistance Program emphasizes projects that use woody biomass from forestry management activities and wood products manufacturing. to develop appropriate energy and biochar technologies to process woody biomass. Under the program, energy produced by a funded biomass plant would be around 2.6 million kilowatt-hours per year. .
