JEC Sets Up the First Pilot Biochar Production Plant in Hong Kong

30 Dec 2021

JEC was recently awarded the contract to set up and operate the first Pilot Biochar Production Plant (PBPP) in EcoPark, an initiative to explore a more comprehensive and long-term development direction for handling local woody waste by the HKSAR Government.

Located in Tuen Mun, PBPP converts woody waste into biochar after processing. With its carbon molecules-retaining feature, biochar on the one hand can reduce carbon emissions to help achieve the carbon neutrality vision under Hong Kong’s Climate Action Plan 2050, and on the other hand has many applications including serving as a soil conditioner, an adsorption material for filtering pollutants, a composting enhancer and a building material additive. The plant expected to process around 6,000 tonnes of local woody waste and produce about 1,200 tonnes of biochar per year.
