Shaping of bio coal and seeds for vertical application in urban areas – step 2

Greenworks AB now focuses on producing the plant panels entirely from bio-based materials and has found bio-based alternatives to all components. A consortium has been formulated to investigate the possibilities of refining and producing a bio-based material that has been explored in step 1 hypothesis testing. Greenworks AB, together with EnviGas AB and RISE ETC AB, wants to form biochar pellets together with seeds and organic binder into a sheet material applicable for vertical use. The project will investigate whether these materials together can achieve the properties required by a plant substrate, allow seeds to germinate, and thus take the product to TRL 5.

Budget and time plan

The project has a total budget of 1,9 MSEK and the project runs between November 2021 and October 2022.
