Technological Centre

Presentation of BIOCHARMB project

Next January 9, 2019, the CETIM Technology Centre will host the presentation of the Conecta PEME project BIOCHARMB “Development of a biomass pyrolysis plant for the use of biochar in environmental applications”.


Its consortium includes the companies GESTÁN Medioambiental, Valora Consultores, ENSO Environmental Solutions and INTACTA Gestión Ambiental, the latter leader of the consortium. With the technological support of CETIM, the partners will develop and validate a biomass valorization strategy through the development of a high efficiency pyrolysis plant, designed to optimize the biochar yield. In addition, the application of biochar will be researched and optimized in two fields:


  • In water treatment, to increase its effectiveness in the elimination of a large number of pollutants
  • In treatment of gaseous streams, through its modification and use as a base in the development of a biofiltration system for the treatment of pollutants in gas streams (H2S, NH3, mercaptans, etc.)


Both applications will be validated during the project through the construction of two pilot plants that will be tested under real operating conditions.
