Rest till Bäst
Produces biochar from organic residues
Rest till Bäst is a Vinnova-funded project whose purpose is to develop solutions for managing society’s organic residues (park and garden waste, sludge, algae and seaweed) and create a much needed beneficial product (biochar), while at the same time minimising environmental and climate impact and establishing a carbon sink. The project has 14 partners – from established universities and large companies to small enterprises and municipalities.
SLU develops knowledge on how to use biological natural resources on land and in water in a sustainable way. SLU is the deputy project manager for Rest till Bäst and contributes its expertise within plant ecology and urban vegetation systems.
