From “waste” to value –
all over the world
Today more than ever, companies are faced with rising waste disposal costs and legislation aimed at reducing waste while promoting recycling.
At PYREG, we have the technology and innovative solutions to meet these demanding requirements. PYREG’s systems can convert your residues into valuable biochar and energy. At the same time, they offer a proven solution that helps reduce your carbon footprint and waste volume and sanitise your residues.

Carbon Removal and district heating
Carbon Removal and district heating Plant residues are processed into high-quality biochar (1,700 t per year). In the process, the carbon contained in the biomass is captured and permanently stored in the biochar (3,200 t of captured CO2 per year). The generated green exhaust heat is fed into the district heating network.
Production of soil
The first biochar production plant in Europe was built in Germany in 2012. The aim of this compost and soil plant goes one step further than the mere disposal of biomass – their aim is to produce the best possible compost qualities and subsequently the best possible finished soils for professional users such as garden designers. While beeing able to comply with the strict limits of the Waste Incineration Ordinance, the material is constantly available and deliverable in consistently high quality. The plant operates 24 hours a day and produces about 1,000 kg of high-quality biochar per day. This biochar pioneer feeds the total energy (150kW), released during the carbonization process, into its heat network – for heating and drying the feed material.

+ Excess thermal energy is used
Recycle residual materials an improve CO2 balance
The PYREG system enables upcycling of different residuals into clean biochar. Through closed-loop material cycles, the sustainable and climate-friendly carbonization-technology contributes to the reduction of CO2 emissions.
Recycling of Agricultutral Residues
Upcycling of different residuals (e.g. agricultural waste and woodchips) into valuable biochar, which can be used as soil conditioner in arable soils. In addition to improving the quality and quantity of the crop, the green energy generated can be used locally.

Industrial waste material can be carbonized
without prior sorting. The resulting homogeneous biochar can, e.g. be used as a filler in further integrated processes.

“Our vision is to co-locate biochar production at large sources of biomass feedstock (byproducts from Maine’s vast working forests), thereby driving a true circular economy, through the application of innovative NetZero technology. Using a proven process, we will use these forestry byproducts to produce an end product that nourishes soils, cleans water and removes carbon dioxide from the atmosphere, while simultaneously generating renewable energy. To make this vision a reality, we have chosen PYREG as our strategic partner. We are thrilled to be walking this path together and doing good – not only for the region, but also for the world.”

“Our goal is to provide our customers with a complete, efficient and cost-effective solution which continually creates an add value. By integrating PYREG technology at the respective sites and making additional use of
the bioenergy generated, we have achieved this in a sustainable manner.”

protection, as carbon remains contained in the soil for hundreds of years (carbon sink). Over the course of time we have put three PYREG plants into operation – what better proof can there be that we stand by our ecologically and economically sensible decision?”

” How do I treat sewage sludge correctly? This question is of crucial importance for modern wastewater treatment. On the one hand, the disposal of sewage sludge incurs high costs. On the other hand, it can be used as a valuable energy and nutrient resource.
In this context we were looking for a partner and found it in PYREG. Together we offer the planning and realization of a sustainable sewage sludge utilization concept with integration of our sewage sludge dryer ELODRY®️ and the PYREG®️ carbonization plant – with integrated holistic heat recovery and utilization concept.
This was implemented for the first time 10 years ago at the Linz Unkel wastewater treatment plant. This was followed by further projects in which we successfully cooperated. Since then, we have been jointly offering customized plant concepts for municipalities as partners.
