PYRAGRAF's aim is to expand the variety of materials used and the technological approaches employed, with the aim of increasing the adoption of biochar and wood vinegar within the fertilizer and bio-pesticides market. This will be achieved by utilizing thermochemical methods in combination with solar energy in an innovative manner. The PYRAGRAF solution involves integrating concentrated solar energy into a mobile pyrolysis unit for biomass, enabling efficient and economical production of both biochar and wood vinegar.
Three main challenges were identified and targeted in this project:
PYRAGRAF has outlined seven specific objectives, designed to address these key challenges:
