Oct. 22, 2018 - Mississauga, Ont.-based CHAR Technologies Ltd. has successfully commissioned its biocarbon production facility, the company announced today. CHAR creates two types of biocarbon, an activated charcoal SulfaCHAR and a solid biofuel (bio-coal) CleanFyre. At full capacity, the facility will be capable of producing up to five tonnes per day of biocarbon.
“Successful commissioning is a very significant milestone for CHAR,” said Andrew White, CEO of CHAR. “We are now able to produce commercial quantities of SulfaCHAR, as well as enough CleanFyre to test as part of our project with ArcelorMittal Dofasco and Walker Environmental.”
The completion of commissioning is the next milestone in CHAR’s Sustainable Development Technology Canada (SDTC) project. Upon acceptance of the milestone report by SDTC, the next progress payment can be processed.
CleanFyre is a carbon neutral solid biofuel, and through its implementation will allow users to significantly reduce their GHG emissions. SulfaCHAR is a zero-waste activated charcoal, with application in the desulfurization of renewable natural gas. Both are made from low-value materials, including anaerobic digestate and wood-based by-products.
