Klimatklivet utökas nu från 800 Mkr per år till 1,5 Mdr. Under 2018 ger det en ovanligt bra möjlighet att installera pelletsprojekt där kunden har tvekat med investeringen på grund av svag lönsamhet. Naturvårdsverket förklarar hur man ansöker och vi får ta del av erfarenheter från företag som byggt anläggningar med stöd från klimatklivet. Klimatklivet finansierar ett unikt projekt som ska skapa klimatpositiv fjärrvärme och biokol från pyrolys av pelleterade och opelleterade restprodukter från jordbruk. Projektet genomförs av Skånefrö och Ecoera.
