Sustainability at Bhyo.

Nature conservation.

bhyo hydrogen technology creates an efficient circular economy in our residual material economy by using 100% of locally produced biomass and recovering/exploiting all output streams.

Compared to alternative biomass technologies, we use waste and difficult-to-utilize residues such as sewage sludge and no (waste) wood. This not only sets us apart from the competition, but also creates added value for our environment.

Current biomass-based energy technologies mostly use wood pellets. The origin of these is controversial. Every year, the UK imports several million tons of "waste wood" from the Baltic states and Canada. Conservationists and scientists assume that functioning forests are being cut down here and that no waste wood is being used.

By using 100% of local biomass, our technology could save almost 100,000 trees from being cut down or used as firewood (if waste wood is used).

Climate protection.

A holistic lifecycle assessment of the system must be carried out in order to obtain a precise overview of the extent of the emissions generated not only during use, but also during planning and construction.

The GHG balance of our systems depends on 4 areas:

Our commitment to sustainability.

At bhyo, we see sustainability as a fundamental principle that guides our actions. Our goal: a sustainable future based on the protection of our natural resources. Here you can find out how we take responsibility in two key areas - climate protection and nature conservation - and what steps we are taking to make a positive impact.

Climate protection.
How we help.

Our approach focuses on working with local stakeholders to enable the transition to a circular, climate-friendly community. We implement initiatives that minimize carbon emissions and reduce the consumption of natural resources.

Circularity in the municipality.

By creating local cycles, we promote the efficient use of resources. We support local businesses and households in optimizing recycling and reuse opportunities and avoiding waste.


Short distances mean fewer emissions. We are committed to using local resources, thereby reducing the need for long transportation routes.

Savings potential.

Insight into potential savings.

Avoidance of deforestation.

By paying consistent attention to the preservation of trees and forest areas, we are safeguarding ecologically important habitats and reducing the level of CO2 emissions. Every group of trees saved, the size of a soccer pitch, actively helps to regulate the CO2 supply in our atmosphere. More green oases mean a healthier environment and greater absorption of the greenhouse gas.

Reduction of emissions.

The use of advanced technologies leads to a significant reduction in CO2 compared to traditional approaches. We focus on innovations that require fewer resources and work more efficiently, resulting in a noticeable reduction in greenhouse gas emissions. This sustainable technological edge plays a key role in reducing our global carbon footprint.

Use of alternative fuels and combustibles.

Moving away from fossil fuels in the transport sector and switching to alternative drive solutions not only costs less CO2, but also less money. In buildings, more environmentally friendly heating systems are being promoted in order to reduce dependence on oil and gas. Similarly, in steel production, the focus is on technologies that have lower emission values in order to achieve a double benefit for the environment and the economy.

Reduction of the carbon footprint.

A municipality's carbon footprint is a measure of its environmental impact. Collecting and analyzing energy-related data enables us to identify targeted measures to reduce CO2 emissions. We work together to reduce emissions and accelerate the transition to sustainable practices.

Social costs of CO2.

The social costs of CO2 include health impacts, environmental damage and economic losses. By acting prudently and reducing CO2 emissions, we are helping to reduce these long-term costs. It is an investment in the quality of life of future generations and a responsibility towards society as a whole.

Nature conservation.

Handling residual materials.

The use of residual materials in energy production makes a direct contribution to environmental protection. The use of primary raw materials, which could cause deforestation and additional emissions, is avoided. Instead, bhyo uses residual materials that would otherwise remain unused, thus helping to reduce waste while at the same time generating energy from previously unused potential.

Impact of deforestation on the environment.

Deforestation not only leads to a direct increase in greenhouse gases, but also has long-term consequences for the habitats of animals and plants as well as for biodiversity as a whole. By minimizing deforestation, bhyo not only protects the forest, but also ensures the preservation of biodiversity.


Preservation of forests.

Reduction of deforestation.

By focusing on the use of local residues, we are creating an alternative to the extraction of raw materials through deforestation. This helps to reduce the need for new forest areas to be developed and thus protects existing ecosystems. This strategy not only reduces CO2 emissions, but also preserves valuable natural landscapes for future generations.

Shortening transportation routes.

Short transportation routes are a simple but effective means of reducing energy consumption and the associated emissions. The targeted use of local resources and residual materials minimizes the need for long supply chains and thus contributes significantly to a reduced carbon footprint. This approach not only promotes the local economy, but also benefits the environment.

Protection of biodiversity.

The conservation of forest areas and natural habitats ensures the preservation of biodiversity and the various animal and plant species. This protection of biodiversity is essential to maintain the balance within ecosystems and support the ecological processes that are fundamental to life on earth. Every piece of nature that is preserved contributes to the continued existence of the Earth's diverse life forms.

Information on deforestation.

Dimension of deforestation.

Research is being carried out into the extent of land loss due to deforestation and what proportion of this is directly related to energy production.

Effects on the animal and plant world

The consequences of deforestation for animals and plants are being studied in detail in order to raise awareness of the associated problems and develop suitable protective measures.

Climate initiatives.

bhyo is convinced that significant improvements for the environment can be achieved through responsible and sustainable action. The initiatives and efforts in the area of climate and nature conservation reflect the company's commitment to a liveable and sustainable future. Everyone is invited to become part of this mission and work together to preserve and protect our planet.
