Three projects receive support from the Pyrolysis Fund to promote technologies to reduce greenhouse gas emissions from agriculture.
– It was Stiesdal SkyClean, Dall Energy, and Frichs Pyrolysis who received the green light from the Danish Energy Agency to start pyrolysis projects that will contribute to greenhouse gas reductions in agriculture while green energy is produced.
In total, the projects will receive 194 million DKK from the Pyrolysis Pool, which in the spring of 2022 received applications for as much as 397 million DKK from 12 projects.
– In an interplay between the agricultural and energy sectors, the three projects will demonstrate new technological solutions that will simultaneously mean less CO2 and more energy. The promising projects can thus help to ensure Denmark can meet its climate goals of 70 percent CO2 reduction in 2030. At the same time, Denmark, with the projects, can become a pioneer in green pyrolysis technology, says the Danish Energy Agency’s Deputy Director Stig Uffe Pedersen in an article on the Danish Energy Agency.

From residual products to district heating
With the project ‘Large-scale Fluid Bed Pyrolysis,’ Dall Energy will develop, establish and demonstrate a pyrolysis technology for converting residual products, among other things, from agriculture to biochar and green energy in the form of district heating.
For this purpose, the project will establish a multifuel plant that can process several organic residues such as straw and sewage sludge. The project thus has the potential to reduce the agricultural footprint of agriculture and, at the same time, contribute to the gas and district heating supply in Denmark. The project is supported by DKK 51.4 million DKK.
– The plant will be established in a multi-supply context in close collaboration with utility companies in Billund Municipality. Here you have a vision of a technology center that will produce sustainable CO2-neutral district heating and transport fuels. The first step on the journey towards such a technology center is the 10 MW demonstration plant, which we at Dall Energy now, with the support of the Danish Energy Agency, are about to establish, says Jens Dall Bentzen, Director, Dall Energy.
