World class biochar production facilities made in Finland
Remove CO2 by converting waste biomass into energy
Industry-level biochar production technology
Suitable for biogas, pyrolysis oil, and clean energy production
Biomass is carbonized in 600 degrees celsius, pyrolysis gas combusted at 1000 degrees celsius with minimal emissions.
Excess energy from the plant can be used for heating, steam or other purposes.
High-precision process optimization capabilities enable the use of various feed stocks. Controlled pyrolysis process enables efficient biochar production.
Unique, state-of-art, turnkey solution for biochar and energy co-production.
Carbofex demo plant
No.1 facility in Europe
Our demo plant has been in operation since 2017. This specific unit carbonizes up to 500 kg of wood chips per hour, turning it into 140 kg of biochar and 1MW clean energy power.
With an optional electrostatic oil separator, the system can produce 100 liters of high-quality pyrolysis oil.
The facility can produce 1000 tons of biochar and 600 tons of oil per year, and up to 8000MWh clean energy as part of a municipal heating network.
• 3500 t biomass
SUITABLE RAW MATERIALS
• waste wood chip and pellet
• nut hull / husk
• straw pellet
• olive pits, olive cake
• coconut shell
• date pits, palm kernels
• lignin pellets
The real black gold
Biochar turns carbon from potential climate disaster into an environmental solution and profit.
Pyrolysis technology turns existing biomass into valuable products of revolutionary biochar, oil, and gas.
There are multiple productive and environmental uses for production. These include fertile soil for plants and the filtration of harmful chemicals.
The facility produces more energy than it consumes. Extra renewable energy can be used for heating, cooling, or desalination.
About our biochar
Carbofex pyrolysis technology
The continuous pyrolysis unit utilizes biomass to high degree. The unique, controlled pyrolysis technique allows usage of variety of raw material and precisely controlled carbonisation.
Temperature and the residence time can be accurately adjusted so the resulting biochar is of uniform quality.
Carbofex Biochar is pure and of high quality. It clears by large marginal all limit values designated to biochar. It is approved for ORGANIC food production and produced of PEFC certified feed stock.
Carbofex biochar is certified to Premium/Feed classification.
We are the biggest EBC-certified biochar producer in Europe.
EBC-certification ensures that the feedstock and production are sustainable and the biochar high quality.
Biochar natural is multi purpose biochar product, it is treated only with water, it contains no additives and is free of chemicals. Carbofex biochar has large surface area of +550 m2/g, high carbon content 95% and pyrolysis temperature of 1000C.
Biochar natural is a vegetal carbon and is suitable for: substrate, soil improvement and filtering applications. It is EU-approved for animal feed additive and for stall-, cattle shed-, piggery-, henhouse floor desiccator additive and gas/odour management.
Economics of biochar
CO2 removals (CO2 eq)
Our unique, proven technology uses pyrolysis to convert short-cycle carbon stored in biomass as CO2 into mineralized long-cycle carbon in the form of biochar. Biochar has many studied uses for positive impacts for environment and society.

Biochar in action
Convert unutilized biomass and organic waste into valuable biochar with pyrolysis technology. The process removes CO2 from atmospheric circulation and generates clean energy, among several other benefits.
100% of Stockholm´s parks grow on fertile and clean biochar soil.
6,500 tonnes of organic waste becomes a growing ground for plants in the Swedish capital. The project will deliver revenue on the city’s investment in eight years, estimated at approximately 850,000 EUR.
Global loss of fertile land to be replaced with biochar
94 % clean carbon used in semiconductor, battery, and environmental filtering technology.
Replacing fossil materials and bringing essential solutions to developing nations and industries, there are over 50 practical uses for biochar.
Number of scientific studies to support the use of biochar since 2007
Europes largest pyrolysis plant - sells out production for over a year in advance.
80 % of the product is exported overseas. The rapidly growing market of biochar products is estimated to reach a total value of over $3 billion by 2025.

Carbofex participates in the $100M XPRIZE Carbon Removal
We have been invited and have officially registered for the XPRIZE Carbon Removal Competition and are eager to start our journey of achieving a scale of gigatons CO2 removal per year.
Officially launched on Earth Day 2021, XPRIZE Carbon Removal is a four-year global competition, aimed at tackling climate change by asking global innovators to develop solutions that can pull carbon dioxide directly from the atmosphere or oceans and lock it away permanently in an environmentally benign method.
Don´t just take our word for it
We work closely with many organizations that evaluate and certify our facilities, products, and impact.
When other kids still played with toys, we played with biomass, made char, and developed the foundations of what Carbofex is today – the real clean carbon maker.

OUR WORK TOWARDS
Shared global targets
The United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goals set out targets for improving the sustainability of our planet and the health and well-being of its inhabitants.
Carbofex helps to work towards the achievement of these goals by improving soil fertility, desalinating water, producing renewable energy, reducing atmospheric CO2, and combating desertification and deforestation.
