Airex Energy's proprietary CarbonFX torrefaction technology transforms sawmill by-products, logging residues and forestland biomass into value-added biocarbon products such as:
- Biocoal - a drop-in replacement for coal in cement kiln and coal-fired power plants
- Biochar - a natural and organic soil amendment
- Lightly torrefied wood flour - for wood-plastic composites
- Highly carbonized biocoke - for metallurgical applications
Biocoal, in the form of torrefied pellets, is a clean, renewable and readily available drop-in replacement for coal.
It can be co-fired with coal in any proportion or replace coal completely.
Biochar is a powerful all-natural soil amendment
that increases water holding capacity, enhances nutrient retention and boosts microbial activity.
Airex Energy operates an industrial-scale biocoal plant located on the South Shore of the St. Lawrence River in the Province of Québec in Canada where woody biomass is abundant and certified.
