Diacarbon gets bucks to convert farm waste
A Burnaby-based company will receive more than $142,000 for a project it is doing converting agricultural wastes into biocoal.
Diacarbon Energy will receive the funding from the Canada-B.C. Agri-Innovation program. The company specializes in developing carbon-neutral and carbon-negative products.
The project converts wastes such as anaerobic digestate, poultry litter and spent mushroom substrate into biocoal. Diacarbon, which is based on Boundary Road at Lougheed Highway, will also research the use of biocoal as an industrial fuel and energy source.
