Key Features

Our pyrolysis plants transform waste biomass into valuable biochar which acts as a carbon sink - eliminating environmental harm and generating income.

Modular

Bespoke specification with proven cost-effective technology

Fully Automated

IoT for maximum performance with minimal supervision

High-tech emissions control

Scrubbers and emissions monitoring to ensure compliance

Multi-feedstock capability

Different biomasses can be handled

Control your output

Adjust parameters to control the carbon credits and energy you generate

Small footprint

Unique vertical design with a footprint of only
20 x 20 m

A single supplier for all aspects of your project

There are several key stages to a high performing biochar operation, and the interfaces between each of them are crucial.

That's why we offer a fully integrated approach using tried and tested technology designed to work seamlessly together to maximise efficiency and performance.

And we provide all the services required for a successful project, through planning, implementation and operation.

Why the C1000?

The C-1000 from Woodtek is the latest iteration of a design which has been successfully operating for over 5 years.

It has a unique vertical design, delivering many advantages over other approaches:

  • Smaller footprint so it can can operate in more sites
  • Easy maintenance reducing cost and interruption
  • Tolerance of impurities such as stones or metal, meaning less downtime and repairs
  • In-line dryer so high moisture feedstocks can be used with a minimum of energy
  • Integrated scrubber resulting in minimal emissions
  • High energy production due to minimal heat loss

Proven technology

The C-1000 from Woodtek is a proven and highly reliable pyrolysis reactor manufactured in the UK. As the central component to the pyrolysis plant, the rest is sized around the number of C-1000 units deployed to match the required capacity.

Modules

Successful pyrolysis involves various processes that are crucial to make your output efficient. Often sold separately, our approach ensures delivery of a complete end-to-end solution built for your needs.

We can make your life easier by providing equipment designed and proven to work together.

Add-ons we offer

These key modules are needed in most plants.

Feeder machine.
Feeders


We design and optimise the system to minimise labour requirements and OPEX by ensuring a feeder sized appropriately for the material, site and operational plan. Options include top loaders, hoppers and telehandler/loaders.

Dryers.
Dryers

Drying the feedstock is crucial to bring its moisture content to levels suitable for pyrolysis. The best option will depend on the feedstock, but in all cases the energy required will come from the pyrolysis reactor.

Scrubbers.
Scrubbers

Depending on emission limits, a scrubber maybe essential to obtain a permit, even if it isn’t we recommend a scrubber to reduce particulate emissions. We supply a standard scrubber which can be adapted to capture the specific gases relevant to your feedstock as well as particulates.

Design, installation and support

All our plants are installed and commissioned by qualified engineers, experienced with the equipment and the design of your site.

Commissioning ensures that the plant is working to all aspects of the pre-agreed specification and moves into production.

And once operational, our teams are available to support yours, conduct pre-planned maintenance and support you in every aspect of plant optimisation.

  • Site design
  • Installation
  • Maintenance
  • Remote and on site support

Sustainable development goals

Pyrolysis operations contribute to 8 of the 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).
