Cofton demonstrator appears on national TV

On 27 May, EBRI’s Urban Biochar and Sustainable Materials Demonstrator was featured on the ‘Sky News Climate Show with Tom Heap‘.

Included in the broadcast was an interview with Tim Miller, EBRI Director of Engagement, discussing how the pyrolysis technology we have developed at the Energy & Bioproducts Research Institute (EBRI) at Aston University, in conjunction with our industrial partners is producing not only biochar (a sustainable form of charcoal), but other valuable byproducts including oil, wood vinegar and gas.

These useful products offer many commercial applications in a wide range of industrial sectors including energy, chemical, shipping, construction, horticultural and agricultural.
