Agri-tech Producers

Agri-Tech Producers, LLC, a Black-owned company in South Carolina, has developed equipment that converts wood and other bio-crops into a renewable and carbon neutral fuel that utilities can use in place of coal. The equipment uses the torrefaction process, which involves heating biomass in a low oxygen environment. In addition to contributing to cleaner air, Agri-Tech’s innovation will create larger markets for wood, switchgrass and other agricultural products, which will provide income for small farmers.
