    Context

  • Bioendev - The Biocoal Company

    Type: 
    Product
    Objective:

    Developer and supplier of high-tech systems for cost efficient pre-treatment of biomass for use in heat and power generation, conversion to liquid fuels and production of green chemicals. Based on over ten years of research, BioEndev has developed an innovative torrefaction technology for production of black pellets. With over 10 patents we have a unique technology with high process control and availability. Black pellets resembles fossile coal in many ways but is renewable and carbon neutral. Black pellets are hydrophobic and has up to 50% higher energy density compared to white pellets.

  • Combined heat and power plant Hedensbyn

    Type: 
    Product
    Objective:
    Technology:

    CHP Plant

    Hedensbyn was Skellefteå Kraft’s first bioenergy combine when it started operations in 1996 and has been a world leader in the development of modern bioenergy technology ever since. The facility consists of a Combined Heat and Power plant generating district heating and green electricity, as well as a biopellet factory.

  • CTCN/UNIDO Seeks Proposals to Scale Up Waste Management Technologies in Livestock Farms in Ecuador

    Type: 
    News
    Publication date:
    Objective:

    The United Nations Industrial Development Organization (UNIDO) is seeking a member of the CTCN Network to provide technical services in order to design scale up of climate resilient waste management and energy capture technologies in small and medium livestock farms in Ecuador. 

    Ecuador has  requested  technical  assistance  from  CTCN  to  develop  an  implementation  plan  to  design,  pilot  and deploy  sustainable  management  models  that  harness  energy  from  the  manure  of livestock  production units.

  • Carbon sink and low-carbon building materials

    Type: 
    Technology
    Objective:

    Materials and products used in building, such as steel and aluminum, are created by a production process of raw material extraction, raw material process, melting, manufacture to final products, and transportation to building sites. Each of the steps consumes energy, which is also expressed in terms of carbon emissions. Total carbon emissions of all building materials and products and the construction involved to put them together is known as building’s embodied carbon. Embodied carbon accounts for about 20% of the carbon emissions from the building sector (Lane, 2010).

  • CTCN/WHRC webinar: Tools for Measuring and Managing Biomass Carbon Stocks in Forest Landscapes

    Type: 
    Webinar
    Date and time:
    Wednesday, December 7, 2016 - Wednesday, December 7, 2016 Europe/Copenhagen

    Under the UNFCCC, the 2015 Paris Agreement puts a strong emphasis on “independent nationally determined contributions” as the principal mechanism for countries to contribute to climate change mitigation and recognized the importance of accurate measurement of reduced emissions by sector for perio

  • Forest management techniques for mitigation (REDD+)

    Type: 
    Technology
    Sectors:
    Objective:

    Several forest mitigation options exist: afforestation/reforestation, Deforestation and forest degradation, forest management for carbon stocks and wood products. The IPCC notes that when properly designed and implemented, these forestry mitigation optiosn should provide substantial co-benefits in terms of employment and income generation opportunities, biodiversity and watershed conservation, provision of timber and fibre as well as aestethic and recreational services (IPCC, 2007).

  • Improved Cook Stoves

    Type: 
    Technology
    Objective:

    Since about 1.5 billion people in the world use traditional stoves for cooking (and heating), efforts to improve the efficiency of cookstoves have been increasingly popular in the developing world. Improved stoves come in different forms and sizes.
