Find out how Takachar is converting biomass residues into higher value bioproducts and biofuels:
“We’re developing small-scale, low-cost, and portable systems to deploy to rural, hard-to-access communities that will locally upgrade and densify crop and forest residues on-site into higher-value bioproducts such as fertilizer blends, biofuels, and chemicals. The goal is to create a profitable network of rural communities that are self-sufficient in their production and consumption of key chemicals without reliance on expensive, carbon-intensive imports, thereby advancing climate justice.”Kevin Kung, Takachar’s Chief Technology Officer

We then harvest that seaweed and manufacture biostimulants and agrifeed supplements for land-based farmers that reduce emissions and increase yields.”Bill Collins, Cascadia’s Chair and Co-Founder
Discover the latest advancements in HTEC‘s plan to build a hydrogen fuel supply infrastructure across Canada:
