Carbonscape is based in the Marlborough region of New Zealand, an area reputed for its unbeatable natural beauty and pristine environment. Although already famous for the wine it produces, Marlborough is also well known as a hub for innovation and for supporting a diverse range of businesses from tourism and marine farming to aeronautical engineering.
Within this inspiring environment, CarbonScape was conceived by a team motivated to reduce the amount of carbon dioxide (CO2) in the atmosphere. This resulted in the development of a process to convert waste biomass into charcoal an inert form of carbon, that when applied in agricultural operations as biochar, maintains supportive soil functionality for thousands of years.
There is no established market for biochar yet so today CarbonScape is addressing Green House Gas (GHG) emissions by displacing the use of fossil carbon with patented process technologies that refine low cost biomass – such as discarded log-ends from forestry harvesting sites – into valuable finished carbon products. These finished products are:
Carbonscape’s process technology exploits the benefits of lower costs associated with cheaper inputs, higher efficiencies and faster processing times compared to traditional techniques.
In short, Carbonscape derives economic benefit whilst simultaneously aiding our planet through patented technology. It is the epitome of clean business, creating a winning combination of producing valuable products as well as a cleaner and more sustainable environment.
