Biocarbon on an industrial scale 

In Vägari, Estonia, our biocarbob plant (Baltania) based on Perpetual Next's C-Vertr V technology has been in operation since 2020. The factory is designed for a production capacity of 160 kilotons of biocarbon per year.

More about Baltania

Our Baltania plant is the first plant in the world to produce biocoal by carbonisation on an industrial scale. Located in central Estonia  produced the first high grade Perpetual Carbon in May 2021 utilizing our patented carbonisation technology.

In Baltania we use wood from suatainable forestry. This is low grade wood that cannot be used for production of products. Baltania follows strict regulations to ensure only low grade waste is used. We only use sustainably sourced feedstock. 

The carbon has many applications: biocoal, gasification but also as a feedstock for biofuels, pharmaceuticals and bioplastics. The biocoal has the similar properties as fossil coal and can serve as a substitute for fossil depending production industries like steel, cement, concrete and building
