Changing The World For The Better
In today’s current waste system, landscape maintenance, tree trimming, and land clearing companies, and municipalities dispose of their vegetative biomass either through their local landfill or solid waste facility for incineration. These companies pay high tipping fees to dispose of their biomass and then this biomass is completely destroyed. We at UBC see that carbon-rich vegetation has a value and can be converted into several biocarbon-based products, such as organic compost, mulch, biochar, and activated carbon. Through the sale of these products, we create a sustainable system that provides beneficial products back to the environment, and by giving back a portion of profits to the providers of this vegetative biomass. Through our partnership with the Sunshine State Biomass Cooperative we are able to create a sustainable cycle by creating the most beneficial reuse for the biomass we receive.
