We at Bussme keep circular economy at the heart of our business, our district heating network as the bloodstream and our biochar as the muscles in carbon removal.
We are designing, building and operating biomass based district heating plants in Southern Sweden. Our district heating systems enable buildings, companies and municipalities to convert from fossil oil and gas to carbon-neutral heating.
The level of carbon in our biochar typically ranges between 85-90% indicating the quality of our pyrolysis units and the biochar itself.
We strongly believe in biochar as a product with its physical features but also as carbon sink. And we think it is one of the most accessible ways of defying climate change. For this reason we have set a target to produce 10 000 m3 of biochar during 2022. This will be done by commissioning two new plants in 2021.
Examples of usage
Studies indicate higher crop yields when adding biochar to the soil.
Economic acceleration impact
The extra income from Puro.earth allows us to deploy more biochar-district heating facilities in Sweden.
Compliance to Puro.earth methodology requirements is done by an independent assessor. Their auditor visits the production facility, validates the accuracy of data, including the carbon net-negativity evidence presented in a Lifecycle Assessment (LCA) or Environmental Product Declaration (EPD) report, and issues an audit statement.
