Our process is 100% sustainable and CO2 neutral

We rely on converting non-edible plant material only. This makes our process 100% sustainable and fully CO2 neutral. 

Kvasir is founded and operated as a sustainable company. We want to change the world for the better and therefore have a strong focus on all aspects of sustainability.  

Our primary goal of decarbonizing the worlds energy system must be achieved without negatively impacting other areas of human life and ecological preservation. Therefore, we are only using biomass waste resources as input to our process. We select agricultural and forestry waste streams in line with the EU Renewable Energy Directive (RED II) Annex IX part A list. This ensures best practice towards avoiding unintended Indirect Land Use Change (ILUC).

When using agricultural residues, we support farmers by adding value to what is otherwise disposed of, and we avoid any competition between growing food or growing feedstocks for fuel.

A side effect of our process is a by-product known as biochar, this condensed carbon can be distributed on farmland to return the nutrients of the biomass to the fields. It has the added advantage of acting as a carbon sink, effectively locking carbon in the soil for centuries.

Replacing fossil fuel oil with our biofuel and sequestering carbon in the farmland that provided the biomass has the combined effect of creating a carbon negative product.

Sustainable development goals

Societal and environmental impact

No poverty

Kvasir empowers farmers of third world countries by turning previously low value agricultural waste into a ressource

Zero hunger

Use of non-edible agriculutal and forestry waste products do not compete with farmland for food production but rather stimulates sustainable food production.

Affordable & clean energy

Non-edible plant biomass is abundantly available everywhere allowing for CO2 neutral biofuel production almost anywhere at low cost

Climate action

Kvasir’s CO2 neutral biofuel offers tremendous contribution to offsetting global warming
