🗞️ Driving the news: Kore Infrastructure is advancing its circular economy system through a groundbreaking partnership with the Tule River Economic Development Corporation and Toyota Tsusho
This collaboration aims to convert wildfire risks into renewable energy resources by using Kore's modular pyrolysis technology to transform non-merchantable trees and brush into carbon-negative hydrogen

🔭 The context: Kore's technology repurposes organic waste materials by superheating them in an oxygen-free environment to produce valuable gases and biocarbon
The Los Angeles-based company's process supports the transition to renewable energy and offers a practical solution for waste management, aligning with the principles of a circular economy

🌍 Why it matters for the planet: By converting deadwood, a wildfire hazard, into clean energy, Kore's initiative not only helps in reducing the risk of forest fires but also contributes to the decarbonization of transportation
The project provides a sustainable model for managing natural waste while producing renewable energy, emphasizing environmental preservation and resource optimization

⏭️ What's next: The partnership, supported by a $500,000 grant from the California Department of Conservation and incentivized by state and federal tax credits, exemplifies a scalable model for addressing climate change and energy sustainability
As climate conditions exacerbate wildfire risks, such innovative solutions are increasingly vital.

💬 One quote: "Innovations like Kore’s deadwood-to-clean energy solution will become more and more critical as our climate continues to warm," reflects the urgent need for sustainable technological innovations in response to climate change challenges.

📈 One stat: Kore's Los Angeles facility processed 24 tons of waste daily during its yearlong test, showcasing the efficiency of its waste-to-energy solution.
