Vow ASA: Agreement with Circular Carbon for the delivery of a Biomass Energy System

May 30th, 2020

Vow's subsidiary ETIA has today entered into a supply agreement with Circular Carbon (Würzburg, Germany), member of Econnext group, for the delivery of a Biomass Energy System to be owned and operated by Circular Carbon, for the processing of cocoa shells from the food industry.

The Biomass Energy System, delivered by ETIA, will create a strong environmental impact by enabling Circular Carbon to help its clients reduce industry carbon footprint by offsetting natural gas and the production of biochar (reducing CO2 emissions). The Biomass Energy System comprises ETIA’s Biogreen® carbonization unit producing biochar and steam (to be used in the local food production).

“The delivery, within this food industry vertical, will demonstrate the relevance and value of Vow Group’s decarbonisation technologies in the food processing industry”, says Vow’s CEO, Mr. Henrik Badin.

“The agreement between ETIA and Circular Carbon manifests the beginning of a mutually valuable cooperation for decarbonisation of industrial processes in the food sector, and the parties are happy to have successfully concluded the engineering study, as well as the pan-European negotiations, despite the exceptional times we are living in”, says Circular Carbon’s CEO, Mr. Felix Ertl.

“Our vision is to build companies with a positive impact on society and the environment, and we are very pleased to see Circular Carbon enter into this cooperation with ETIA and Vow Group“, says Dr. Jobst von Hoyningen-Huene, Co-CEO/Co-Founder of econnext, the majority owner of Circular Carbon.
