IRSI has partnered with Biomass Energy Techniques ( to produce thermal energy and biochar in Edmonton. BET’s 61S will be able to handle up to a ton of feedstock every hour, allowing us to process over 100 tons of waste material every week! In addition to keeping this material out of our city’s landfills, we will be turning this waste into useful thermal energy and biochar to be sold in a variety of markets. Work on the needed support systems is running full steam ahead as we prepare for arrival. We are very excited to get BET’s 61S system in place and commissioned in the next few weeks.
