The latest partner meeting for the SAC project (332081 – Upscaling of Super Activated Carbone (SAC) from laboratory scale (500 g/batch)) to prototype scale (5-10 kg/batch) was held in WAI’s headquarter office in Tønsberg on June 2, 2022.
Partners from Beyonder, NTNU, Tschudi Bio, and Bergene Holm attended the meeting along with WAI. It was a whole day meeting. In the meeting, all the partners discussed the status of each project work packages and the future work plans. At the end of the meeting, all the partners had a tour of WAI’s research facilities including, small scale pyrolysis, pilot pyrolysis, Synolys bioreactor, and anaerobic digesters, etc.
The project is a two-year R&D project led by Beyonder to upscale the SAC production from lab scale to prototype scale. It has been granted 10.7 MNOK by Norwegian Research Council. WAI participates as the work package leader in the project with pyrolysis expertise. WAI holds test facilities in addition to having solid experience in developing advanced machinery and production lines. This project is also the start for a larger plan towards establishing a Super Activated Carbon full-scale factory in Norway.
