Re: Introducing Biomass Controls as a new partner organisation of SuSanA (United States)

Welcome to Biomass Controls!

I'd like to point out that they already have three projects in the SuSanA project database (one of their own and two where they partnered with others). You can find them here:

They are:


2015 - 2016
Biomass Controls, LLC
Combined heat and power stage 1 development plan
To develop a system that can power an appliance for sanitation in areas where electricity is not available or economically feasible

2016 - 2019
Tide Technocrats Private Limited  »
Small Pyrolysis Unit Product Development and Commercialization Planning
To support the development of a technology solution and institutional framework to manage septage and fecal sludge from non-sewered toilets for safe treatment and disposal

2011 - 2015
Climate Foundation  »
Conversion of human waste into biochar using pyrolysis at a community-scale facility in Kenya
To design, build, and test a self-contained system that can pyrolyze (decompose organic material at high temperatures without oxygen) human solid waste into a type of biological charcoal (biochar) that captures and stores carbon.

To Biomass Controls and all our SuSanA partners: please add more projects to the database so that we have a more complete picture on who is doing what.
Here you can see a map of all projects in the SuSanA project database:
