Vancouver, B.C., June 23, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Emergent Waste Solutions Inc. (“EWS” or “the Company”), is pleased to announce that it has commenced commercial production at the Ruby Creek Advanced Thermolysis System (‘ATS’) Plant.
EWS took the ATS technology, first developed to process crumbed rubber from waste tires, through a transformation that enabled it to process waste wood from forestry milling operations to produce valuable biochar, bio-oil, and wood vinegar.
While making the final adjustments for commercial operation the Company produced 7,000 litres of biochar, and over the coming weeks will be increasing efficiency and production volumes.
The Company has entered into discussions with potential large buyers of our superior biochar. Independent laboratory results have shown that our biochar meets the buyers’ requirements and the Company is arranging site visits from these large, national customers.
States Kevin Hull, CEO of Emergent Waste Solutions: “We believe that our work in adapting the ATS to process wood waste gives EWS a solution to any carbon-based waste material. We believe our technology can now solve challenges ranging from replacing landfills to processing agricultural waste and sewage sludge.”
