CHAR Technologies is a leader in high-temperature pyrolysis (HTP) systems. HTP is a thermochemical conversion method of upgrading biomass ‘wastes’ (including PFAS-containing biosolids and sewage sludge) into valuable products of biochar and pyrogas by heating the biomass to elevated temperatures (500 – 850 °C) in an oxygen-free environment (to avoid incineration reactions). Pyrolysis reduces the solids content by up to 90%, making for easier product transport and disposal. Furthermore, PFAS is eliminated in the process and the resulting solid biochar product has many value-added applications including soil amendment and carbon sequestration. Pyrogas is also produced with biochar, which can be used both to provide heat for the pyrolysis process and upgraded to produce environmentally friendly renewable natural gas (RNG) or green hydrogen (H2).
About CHAR Technologies
CHAR is a cleantech development and services company, specializing in high temperature pyrolysis, converting woody materials and organic waste into renewable gases (renewable natural gas and green hydrogen) and biocarbon (activated charcoal “SulfaCHAR” and solid biofuel “CleanFyre”). Additional services include custom equipment for industrial water treatment, and providing services in environmental compliance, environmental management, site investigation and remediation, engineering and resource efficiency.
We challenge the boundaries of technology, exemplified by our development and use of advanced high temperature pyrolysis technology to convert low-value solid waste streams into renewable energy and valuable biocarbon outputs. Our systems and services solve environmental challenges, while delivering measurable value to our clients.
CHAR Technologies Ltd. is a leading cleantech development and environmental services company listed on the TSXV (‘YES.V’).
