Promoting nature positive value chains

The SOLER Group supports the integration of sustainable forest management with the sustainable production of critical materials such as metal, steel, concrete… By producing nature-based carbon from sustainable forests for industrial uses, the SOLER Group paves the way towards new sustainable value chains that are beneficial to both nature and industry.

Metallurgy

Metallurgy

Metallurgical operations’ climate neutrality is often considered difficult to reach. The SOLER Group actively works towards developing products for more sustainable metallurgy processes by tapping into the fields where limited alternatives exist. In doing so, the Group helps to set the stage for a faster transition towards a low-carbon economy.

Cement

Building materials

Reducing the greenhouse gas emissions within the building materials industry is a critical challenge for economies across the world. For example, the SOLER Group proposes a range of biocarbon products which can significantly reduce the clinker to cement ratio, supporting the cement production sector on its way to decarbonize its operations.

agriculture sector

Agriculture

Agriculture is a vital sector of the modern world and plays a crucial role in food supply chains. With its biocarbon products, the SOLER Group develops solutions that improve soil quality, soil fertility and thus plant productivity.

Discover our products

Biocarbon is defined as a carbon-rich solid product resulting from the pyrolysis conversion of wood residues or other biomass residues. Thanks to its high carbon concentration and stability, it offers a substantial emission reduction when used industrially.

By developing biocarbon, we open up towards new, sustainable value chains that are beneficial to both nature and industry.

Where we belong?

For our forests to flourish

The forests are the “lungs of the planet”. Second only to the oceans as natural carbon sinks, they are vital to us all. The global climate being on red alert, we now have no choice but to put the well-being of our forests on the list of our top priorities.
