BXD Cascade


New generation industrial catalysts today for tomorrow

Revolutionising natural gas industrial processes to benefit individuals, their food security, and their environment.

Activated Carbon Production Europe

Why Activated Carbon?

Activated carbon is a versatile material with a wide range of uses, some of which include:

Water purification: Activated carbon is used to remove impurities, chemicals, and odours from water. It is a common component of water filters and is also used in municipal water treatment plants.

Air purification: Activated carbon is used to remove pollutants, allergens, and odours from air. It is used in air purifiers, respirators, and gas masks.

Medical applications: Activated carbon is used to treat poisonings and overdoses. It is also used to remove toxins from the body and to improve digestion.

Industrial applications: Activated carbon is used in a variety of industrial applications, such as the purification of gases, the removal of contaminants from food and beverages, and the production of lithium-ion batteries.

Other applications: Activated carbon is also used in a number of other applications, such as the production of activated charcoal for teeth whitening, the decaffeination of coffee and tea, and the recovery of solvents.

The global activated carbon market

The global activated carbon market size is valued at USD 4.4 billion in 2023 and is projected to
reach USD 7.0 billion by 2028, growing at a CAGR of 9.5%.

Very little activated carbon is actually made in Europe with the majority of production coming from China and third-world countries where emissions regulations are less stringent.

The current price of activated carbon imported into the EU is around €1,300-€1,800 per tonne.

The BXD Cascade production process using low-cost waste wood, requires far less energy and shorter processing times creating significant market advantages

We have existing technology to produce more than 55-tonnes per day from a single small production unit or over 110-tonnes per day in a dual facility.

The BXD Cascade Circular Economy

Sustainable Economic Benefits

waste wood

carbon Waste

A circular economy founded on unwanted carbonaceous waste products including those from sustainable forestry industries and biomass.

food security

Food Security

Up-valuing carbon waste for farm soil remediation, nitrogen-based fertilizers and non-toxic sustainable agricultural solutions.

health security

Health Security

And all-round health security from sustainable farming and activated carbon solutions in pharmaceuticals, water treatment, pollution control and so many applications crucial to contemporary society.

What Makes BXD Cascade Different?

Environmentally friendly

Our catalysts and catalyst-based processes are designed to effectively consume, convert and re-use waste products like CO2, NOx and waste heat, unlike wasteful existing catalytic processes.

Lower Capital Costs

Our catalysts employ earth-abundant materials with no need for expensive and exotic elements., enabling plants to operate at low pressures and temperatures, massively reducing construction cost.

Distributed Production

Not only do our catalysts result in more affordable products for consumers, but they also enable distributed production that creates local jobs within a more safe and robust national infrastructure.

Abundance Not Waste

Our high-efficiency catalysts mimic processes found in nature operating so effortlessly. This makes industrial processes far more efficient and far less polluting — more like nature’s blueprint.


BXD Cascade activated carbon production – like all our industrial solutions – develop from our SOLVING FOR ONE philosophy – design for the smallest production unit, practically, economically, locally – then upscale to large industrial dimensions, regional, national, international. 

What can you do by solving for one?

Efficient, affordable abundance without waste
