Game-changing WOOD PELLETS TECHNOLOGY to slow climate change

Quem somos - BiomassTrust RENEWABLE ENERGY

About

Our unique ion chloride extraction technology

enables sustainable eucalyptus woody biomass to be used for biofuel in hundreds of nations where they were previously barred. We led to the world’s first certified eucalyptus wood pellet fuel, stocking carbon at least 6 to 10 times faster than current wood pellets from temperate and boreal forests.

TECHNOLOGY

Unlock the largest potential of wood-based bioproduction worldwide

BiomassTrust is a wood pellets technology company that can access the largest potential of sustainable wood-based in the world.

Our patented solution has developed an ion transfer technology to removes enough chlorine to make eucalyptus wood pellet fuel safe for international markets.

Proceso 1 - BiomassTrust RENEWABLE ENERGY

More than 60 percent of sustainable bioenergy is produced by burning wood pellets fuel, but their potential as a renewable energy source remains limited.

Processo 2 - BiomassTrust RENEWABLE ENERGY

Eucalyptus planted forests have the largest potential of sustainable wood-based for pellets biofuel export in the world. Historically wood pellets fuel generated from vast, tropical eucalyptus forests are banned in many countries because burning them generates hazardous emissions.

Processo 3- BiomassTrust RENEWABLE ENERGY

Our technology has now overcome this technical obstacle. Since a granted patent technology in 3 continents (Brazil, European Union and Vietnam). BiomassTrust’s validated and commercialized industrial-scale procedure removes enough chlorine from eucalyptus wood-based to make the pellets safe for international markets.

Processo 4 - BiomassTrust RENEWABLE ENERGY

Our MVP in Brazil is the world’s first certified eucalyptus wood pellet to attain international commercial standards (ENplus A1). Unlock a new disruptive market of non-intermittent renewable energy. BiomassTrust's solution boosts sustainable wood pellets production and reduces up to 30% of the biofuel international cost.

While we are rushing to build more efficient batteries, we forget that nature already  gives us wood

Impact

We are aligned to 7 of the UN Sustainable Development Goals

Increase substantially the ​share of renewable energy in the global energy mix is fundamental to achieving higher levels of economic productivity and promoting decent job creation through diversification, technological upgrading, and innovation.

Displacing fossil fuels for BiomassTrus’t wood pellets also delivers carbon emissions savings through restoring degraded land, implementation of sustainable management and substantially increase afforestation and reforestation globally.

Milestones

BiomassTrust is an academic ​spin-off founded in spring 2020 at Harvard Innovation Labs. Prior to becoming a company, we build a consistent technology supported by awards and honors, patents, industrial and commercial validation, and the world’s first eucalyptus wood pellets fuel certification.
