Rest till Bäst
Rest till Bäst is a project with 15 partners, representing universities, larger companies, small businesses and municipalities. The project aims to develop solutions for society's organic residues and create biochar, while minimizing the environmental and climate impact and establishing a carbon sink.
OPPORTUNITIES FOR COMPANIES, MUNICIPALITIES AND ACADEMIA IN THE PROJECT:
Take part in new and collective knowledge about biochar
Inspiration and identification of possibilities for how biochar from park and garden waste, sludge, algae and seaweed can be used in a circular way
Knowledge of circular business models for biochar and values for the municipality
Inspiration for companies on how to create new value chains from their organic waste
Pyrolysis technology is used to produce biochar from residual products such as sludge from wastewater treatment, park and garden waste, algae and residual products from agriculture. Different processes and methods are evaluated in order to be able to produce biochar with desirable properties such as phosphorus but without undesirable substances such as cadmium. The project performs, among other things, cultivation tests with biochar in an urban environment, in addition, the potential of biochar as a carbon sink is evaluated and business models are developed for efficient and profitable production of biochar. All with the aim that the right biochar ends up in the right place!
