Harvesting invasive woody biomass

SteamBioAfrica Project Overview

We will create a commercially viable technology solution that will stimulate the harvesting of invasive woody biomass. We will achieve this by upscaling, adapting, and proving our original SteamBio technology, to confirm that it creates a net economic, social, and environmental benefit.

Wood biomass

The project aims to validate

The design and manufacturing pathways, in order to offer a commercially viable and industrially scaled system (up to 10 tonnes/hour throughput). This will drive post-project commercialisation, amplifying the reach and benefit of the SteamBioAfrica project. Widespread rollout will realise significant sustainable green economic growth, rural employment, and ecosystem restoration.
