Our Vision

A new face of our bioeconomy and opening the door to innovative and sustainable development in the processing and production of materials.

OUR MISSION

Carbon sequestration and promoting sustainable development.

Our priority is to redefine how carbon is used. Thanks to the G2-Next Gen Technology, we are creating a new solution in the method of storing carbon dioxide in the form of a renewable product with a negative balance in terms of carbon dioxide emissions.

THE COMPANY’S HISTORY

Carbon sequestration and promoting sustainable development.

Biochar Europe sp. z o.o. was founded on the basis of engineering staff with almost 40 years of experience in the field of technological innovations of thermal energy in connection with environmental protection.

In 2020, HEMPATIA, a company dealing with the cultivation and processing of hemp, made contact with RDA TECHNOLOGIES to develop and implement a mobile installation for the production of biochar. An important assumption was the ability to recover energy and use it directly on the farm.

The combination of regenerative farming techniques, holistic management and innovative technology has led to the development of a way to sequester carbon dioxide perfectly responding to the needs of the ever-changing world.

In 2022, BIOCHAR EUROPE was founded. where HEMPATIA and RDA TECHNOLOGIES are the shareholders.

During the design process, we faced unexpected challenges and made many changes in relation to the first concepts of the company’s operation.

Today, we offer you not only the G2-Next Gen installations, which is a market leader in terms of efficiency and product quality, but also the entire facilities and a scheme on how to effectively compensate for the amount of carbon dioxide produced by civilization.
