Since inception the mission of Rainbow Bee Eater has been to play a role in the shift from fossil fuel based energy to renewable & sustainable energy while enabling supply of low cost Biochar.

ECHO2, the first commercial technology of Rainbow Bee Eater produces low cost syngas from organic residues such as crop and timber 'wastes' that are burned or land-filled today. The by-product, Biochar, locks up carbon.

For industrial users of natural gas or LPG, the cost of syngas from your Rainbow Bee Eater module is likely to be ~$0/Gj.
