Oct. 4, 2017 - Quebec-based pyrolysis plant Xylo-Carbone is receiving $1.5 million in funding from the Quebec Government to build a charcoal production plant that will produce bio-coal products.


The $6.6 million plant is being constructed in the town of Saint-Tite, Que.

The company's website states that it specalizes in converting wood to bio-carbon products for the BBQ cooking industry, biochar in agriculture, and for water purification applications and air through activated charcoal.

Xylo-Carbone also operates a cutting and sorting site for logs on its 15-hectare production site.

According to a news release, the project is being re-engineered using the company's new Maple Leaf Charcoal technology to produce vegetable charcoal (renewable forest biomass); a new type of furnace with improved mass efficiency and stability with respect to the carbonization process.

The project is expected to create approximately 20 jobs.
