Promising results on the effects of EcoChar
We are working on European legislation to ease the use of this high valuable product. Wageningen Research performed a desk study about the possible uses and European regulations of EcoChar.
EcoChar has five unique properties:
• Dry and free from pathogens
• Can hold up more than its own weight with moisture
• Guarantees less soak-away
Research 'Perspectives of EcoChar'
Spring 2018 Wageningen Research performed a desk study about the possible uses and regulations in Europe of EcoChar, initiated and funded by Mavitec. The promising results are available now at the website of Wageningen University.

A NEW WAY OF SOLVING MANURE ISSUES
Gasification is a new way of solving manure issues. This innovative technology converts various kinds of manure into green energy and high value EcoChar. EcoChar is dry, odourless and carbon-rich. It has high P, K, Ca and Mg values and is free from pathogens, E-coli, growth hormones and residues from medication, since they are burned in the gasifier. EcoChar is one of the few technologies that is relatively inexpensive, widely applicable, and quickly scalable.
Mavitec Environmental has been developing gasification systems since 2002 and has full scale plants - with a capacity of 1,5 tons of manure per day - operating in:
- Ohio (cow manure)
- Orleans (chicken, turkey and hog litter)
- Nebraska (wet distillery grain)
- Georgia (food waste)
- The Netherlands (pig manure)
More installations are under construction in Russia and many projects are pending in the near future.
