CHAR Technologies Ltd. (CHAR Tech) has annonuced the imminent commencement of a production run of 500 tonnes of pelletised biocarbon.
The pelletised biocarbon is destined for use at various heavy industrial facilities, including ArcelorMittal sites to fulfill a portion of the company’s previously announced biocarbon offtake agreement.
The production run is an important milestone in the ongoing commercial upgrades at CHAR Tech’s state-of-the-art Thorold facility, according to the organisation.
It explained that pelletisation, also known as densification, is essential for creating a biocarbon that can be utilised as a drop-in replacement for fossil coal.
Achieving proper pellet size and density are crucial for its use in heavy industrial applications, including steelmaking and mining, as well as for ensuring effective transportation, handling and weather resilience.
Andrew White, CEO of CHAR Tech, said: “Pelletisation of biocarbon is a critical step in meeting the specifications, including physical properties, of met coal to allow for direct drop in-replacement. It can also be a tricky step with a number of different operational factors at play to be able to create a pelletised material that can be used in heavy industrial applications, and that can withstand handling, transportation and weather. We’re looking forward to getting the pelletised biocarbon into the hands of our clients, including ArcelorMittal, over the coming months.”
