Antaco’s vision – Convert our waste to a carbon neutral solid fuel

Antaco has developed and patented an innovative solution that replicates nature in turning organic matter into coal.

The result – carbon neutral coal - biocoal - that can be burnt in existing power stations.

With our economic technology waste companies can convert low-value biowaste into a high-value solid biocoal.

Supported by the Department of Energy and Climate Change (DECC), Antaco has developed its first biocoal production facility capable of converting a range of dry and wet organic wastes including landscape management material, garden, agricultural, food and household waste but also sewage sludge and manure into carbon neutral biocoal available as pellets or briquettes.
