Summary of our Products & Services
We take woody material from local households, farmers, landowners, businesses and Councils and convert it to biochar. A modest receival fee is charged depending on the volume, type and dimensions of the material supplied except for local households who may use the service for no charge. All suppliers must register prior to using this service.
Wood receivals & processing:
We take woody material from farmers, businesses and government departments who wish to convert their excess woody material to biochar for a specific purpose.
Biochar Bulk Sales:
We sell the biochar that we produce to wholesalers, other local biochar producers, and producers of biochar-based products such as compost and soil supplements; animal feeds; soil remediation media; storm & waste water filtration systems; air filters etc.
Where a landowner prefers to process his woody material on his own property (eg to avoid loading and cartage costs) and use the resulting biochar directly on his own land we can offer a service to manage the production of the biochar on a contract basis. The use of our expertise and production accounting methods ensures that the biochar so made can be counted towards our total production.
We hire out kilns to local households and landowners for a fee to allow them to make their own biochar on their own land for their own use. (Note: The biochar so made will not be counted towards our total production nor can it be credited towards carbon offsets).
Biochar carbon offsets:
We sell biochar specific carbon offsets.
A certificate will be produced for each 1 tonne carbon offset. Certificates are only sold locally and are only allowed to be used to offset local emissions. An example could be a local fuel retailer who applies carbon offsets to his fuel sales. The price increment paid by the motorist for carbon neutral fuel would be minor and comparable to the normal fluctuations in the retail price of petrol.
The sale price of such carbon offset certificates is determined by market demand.
Training courses are offered on biochar basics; biochar production; biochar uses, including preparation and application for soil improvement; and carbon accounting.
Guided tours of the Centre are offered to groups (eg school groups) that want to see biochar production in progress and learn about the operations of such a Centre.
