Jeffries BioChar - Southern Australia

Jeffries BioChar – Southern Australia

Registry: Puro.Earth
Location: Australia

In 2021, Jeffries commissioned one of the largest biochar plants in Southern Hemisphere. Fuelled by recycled woody green organics, this plant not only creates high quality biochar but generates enough energy from the syngas to power our state-of-the-art ROSS compost and mulch screening plant.

Jeffries’ biochar plant is designed to run 24×6 and is designed to produce around 1500 dry tons of Biochar and about 230 MWh of power a year, while meeting stringent emissions requirements set by local regulatory authorities.

At Jeffries we have had our hands in South Australian soil for generations, growing strong since 1842. Driven by wholesome family values and innovation, we have developed world-leading organic recycling technologies and collection partnerships. We compost over 150,000tn of organic material every year through our facilities in Northern Adelaide. A distinctive element of our organisation is the ability to be part of a strong circular economy.

Our products are made from composted material that return carbon and nutrients to the soil to grow produce and plants that have waste products which become compost when returned to us. Essentially, your food scraps can help to grow your food. Our processes and technologies are unique to us, not only in Australia, but worldwide.

Combining our passion and process, the team at Jeffries deliver premium compost, soil, mulch, biochar and organic fertilisers for farmers, viticulturists, landscapers and home gardeners. Together, we are securing the future of healthy soil for generations to come.
