Short Documentary on the Pyrolysis Technology: A new way to valorize waste from agro-food industries!

  • 6 March 2017

Sofies has developed a new technology to better valorize agricultural waste, the Pyrolysis. It produces heat and biochar, a natural fertilizer and soil enhancer. Pyrolysis technology brings significant economic benefits to farmers and processors and opens up new perspectives for agro-food industries.

This short documentary shows the technology transfer from Switzerland to Vietnam and its first implementation in the coffee sector.  The four year project is supported by REPIC and UNIDO is being implemented by Sofies, our Vietnamese partner Viet Hien Ltd., the Swiss Research Institute Oekozentrum and Neumann Kaffee Gruppe.
