New Life Agro specializes in the development of technologies that sustainably convert biomass into energy and other useful solid and liquid products such as Wood Vinegar. We have designed, manufactured and patented a slow pyrolysis technology called the New Life Pyrolysis Reactor. Our Pyrolysis machinery can efficiently extract bio-liquids from waste biomass, which are a sustainable alternative to many fossil-based fuels and chemicals.
The ‘wood vinegar’ fraction offers a wide range of very exciting applications. These include application as a pesticide, herbicide and germination enhancer or even as a disease suppressant in animal husbandry (see box insert for more details). These applications can benefit agricultural, horticultural and ecosystem regeneration activities. The liquids produced in the pyrolysis process also contain many valuable chemicals such as acetic acid, acetol, methanol, phenols, catechol, pyrine, vanillin and syringol. These ‘bio-based’ chemicals offer sustainable alternatives to similar products derived from petroleum and synthetic chemicals. The New Life agro offers a way of turning your biomass waste streams into a number of valuable and sustainable products while sequestering carbon — helping move towards a greener global economy.
