Arigna Biochar Fuels
Burning solid fossil fuels like bituminous coal, anthracite and petroleum coke for resi-dential heating in Ireland emits extremely high quantities of CO2. Using the briquettes made out of olive stones could reduce the CO2 emissions in this sector by 75%.
Arigna Fuels produce an olive stone based torrefied home heating product for the domestic heat market as well as an olive stone biochar for use within the agricultural, horticultural and other markets.
In addition Arigna Fuels produce a high carbon product which is suitable for agriculture and horticulture and will eventually store carbon permanently in the ground.
