On August 26, 2022 prof. Pidlisniuk presented the project’s results to the firm ATNA Industrial Solution, GmbH, Leipzig, Germany. The firm is involved in the processing of the renewable raw materials, including residues of different biomass. The firm produces in-place small plants for converting crops’ waste and wood residues to pellets which gives attractive option for agriculture to use their residual materials sensibly. The plants allow the production of climate-friendly organic briquettes he form of a briquette opens new transport possibilities and thus new sales markets. A refinement to biocoke or activated carbon is also conceivable. The activities of firm simultaneously assisted in climate change mitigation and implementation of bioenergy strategy.
