    Converting biomass into renewable energy

    Converting biomass into renewable energy and creating additional revenue streams. RVO (Netherlands Enterprise Agency) wrote an interesting article about it in the Biobased Energy Guide. Mavitec developed an innovative technology that converts various kinds of manure into green energy and high value EcoChar, a valuable by-product of the gasification process. Gasification ensures a smaller environmental carbon footprint and will be one of the answers to future energy needs. Gasification is a new way of solving manure issues and offers a lot advantages such as volume reduction, production of renewable energy and reduction of CO2. The produced heat can be used as energy or hot air and the valuable by-product EcoChar can be used as soil improver. EcoChar still contains the mineral ash and fixed carbon, is dry, free from pathogens and can hold more water than its own weight.
