Whitton Heat Plant uses Walnut shells

Know how from Pyrocal Pty Ltd is making use of waste walnut shells in a heat plant in Whitton. The process creates a duel outcome – both biochar and also heat used at the Whitton Gin Plant.

Specialist engin­eer James Joyce has developed a hi-tech furnace based on continuous carbonisation, which can turn nut, cotton, grape, citrus and wine waste — all prod­uced in large quantities in the Murrumbidgee Irrigation Area around Griffith and Leeton — into rich black biochar.
