Dowmann is an Irish company based in Dublin.
For humanity to limit global temperature rise it is no longer enough to merely reduce our carbon emissions. We must also remove most of the carbon already emitted into the atmosphere. Failure to do so will have catastrophic consequences for human life on our planet.
The challenge is the lack of rapid, certifiable & scalable methods for producing carbon reductions.
Dowmann can accept nearly all plant material types. This gives us access to a broader supply & volume of raw materials to produce our biochar, including waste residues.
Our low-energy, pre-processing steps optimally prepare the plant material prior to pyrolysis. This significantly reduces the amount of energy required to convert fresh plant material into carbon rich biochar.
Each Dowmann factory provides 10 full-time, permanent general operative level jobs. Our goal is to fill many of these positions from marginalised and vulnerable socio-economic groups e.g. refugees in direct provision, travelling community, long-term unemployed & former offenders.
We will commit to paying our colleagues in these jobs the living wage and a decent benefits package to ensure they can provide comfort and opportunity for themselves and their dependents
Now, more than ever, the world needs innovation and creative thinking to drive down global carbon emissions.
Extracting biochemicals from the pyrolysis by-products while making biochar, is one opportunity currently in research at Dowmann.
Extracting further value from the processing chain will help to reduce the cost per tonne of Biochar produced and help to scale the industry.
We have a funded R&D project in collaboration with a 3rd level research institute to further explore the opportunities available in this space.
