Their capacity is around 1,000kg/day of which 750kg is waste shells that can be used for fuel and biochar. The biochar will be used to help improve the soils. The company is using the gasifier to reduce their consumption of LPG and to find uses for the cashew shells that are a residue stream from the factory.
