Introducing Leon

Whilst the ChameLeon is reputed for its ability to change colour to suit the moment, our friendly fellow has already been through the cycle and now lives by his true colours (or colour), a bright, fervent Green and this time, it’s for good, because he’s understood.

And it’s not a green that comes out in the wash either. It’s a conviction-based pigment, resilient, hard-wearing signifying not cosmetic change but true behavioral change. We need to be more like him… so let’s do it, let’s bring on the bio-transition !!

Podcast The Biochar Effect

Michael Brogle - Capturing and storing biogenic CO2 in recycled concrete

This week we are talking carbon capture and storage technology (BECCS) with Michael Brogle. Michael works as a Business Development Manager at Neustark AG. Based in Switzerland, Neustark is a BECCS company, which captures biogenic CO2 and permanently stores it in recycled concrete. We are delighted that they have chosen to come to Bio360 Expo to further their international development in collaboration with local biogas and concrete recycling partners.

Vlatko Materic - The carbon cascade 

Dr Vlatko Materic is the founder and CTO of Hot Lime Labs, a Carbon Capture and Utilisation (CCU) company with a technology to supply hydroponic greenhouses with clean CO₂ recovered from biomass waste combustion of biochar making off-gases. Hot Lime Labs believes that the high economic value-add of clean CO₂ to the greenhouse industry combined with the carbon-negative potential of Biochar can generate a powerful carbon cascade i.e. an economically self-sustaining carbon sink capable of absorbing millions of tonnes of CO₂. The company is preparing a rollout in New Zealand and Europe in 2023 and Vlatko will be coming to Nantes in February.
