Haffner Energy and Hexas Biomass sign MoU for biomass turnkey solution

news item image
Haffner Energy, a French family-owned company that designs, manufactures, supplies and operates solutions to produce renewable energy from biomass residues, and Hexas Biomass Inc. (Hexas), a US company specialising in plant-based raw material production from its regenerative purposefully grown crop XanoGrass™, have signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) to establish a non-exclusive partnership.
With 30 years' experience in transforming biomass to energy, Haffner Energy said it has developed a patented biomass thermolysis technology that addresses the decarbonisation challenges and economic constraints in industry, government, land, air and sea mobility.
It also contributes to regenerating the planet through the co-production of biochar, a natural carbon sink, and biogenic CO2, added Haffner Energy.
Hexas is a nature-based solutions company that has developed a drought-resistant, regenerative giant perennial grass (XanoGrass) that it said can be easily made available as sustainable plant-based raw material (XanoFiber™) once harvested.
XanoFiber production utilises marginal land that is unsuitable for agriculture, which can be used to power local biomass-to-energy modules, and for structural and non-structural applications, meets both companies’ shared objectives of regenerating the planet through innovation and sustainable energy production solutions.
The signing of this partnership will enable Hexas and Haffner Energy to offer a turnkey solution for the production of green energy, with guaranteed feedstock availability and cost.
This non-exclusive agreement augurs well for the future of energy recovery from sustainable and abundant purposefully grown biomass with non-competing uses, according to the companies.
“We are thrilled to have signed this partnership, which adds a new dimension to Haffner Energy's offering, and enables us to provide our customers with an integrated solution for the autonomous production of renewable energy,” says Marcella Franchi, SVP North America of Haffner Energy.
“At Hexas, we believe in the partnership of sustainable energy production and purposefully grown bioenergy crops. These two technologies together will accelerate the move to 100% renewable energy in all industries, capture significant amounts of carbon permanently, and revitalise rural communities,” said Wendy Owens, CEO of Hexas.
