Helsingborg: Biochar from garden waste - Nordic Biochar webinar series
As part of the Interreg Öresund-Kattegat-Skagerrak project Greater Bio, you will hear about the new biochar production plant in Helsingborg which will be inaugurated in spring 2022 and the biochar market development in Sweden and Denmark. The case partners are NSR, a public waste management company in Helsingborg, 2050 Consulting and Roskilde University in cooperation with project management partners Sustainable Business Bub and Gate21. The project is running until September 2022.
The market for biochar is young in both Sweden and Denmark, and biochar is currently used primarily for soil improvements in urban agriculture. Today, most of the biochar is imported, as there is a deficit in local production. However, a number of new production facilities are under construction in Sweden, as increased demand is expected in the coming years. In Denmark, biochar has recently been identified as a key to reduce the climate impact from the country’s major agriculture sector, which will likely lead to a surge in biochar demand.
Helsingborg decided in 2019 to invest in a biochar production plant as a way of turning garden waste into biochar. This will make the city greener, bring district heating to 700 houses annually, and create a local carbon sink.
