How to Make Biochar?

The process of making high-quality biochar is quite meticulous. The entire process involves the coordination of multiple systems and components. The following will take a continuous biochar production equipment as an example to show you the biochar production process in detail.

How to Make Biochar

Biomass Pretreatment

To improve reaction efficiency, the reactor has requirements for the particle size, moisture content, and fluidity of biomass. The feed requirement for biomass is within 20mm. In addition, the optimal feed size is 5–8 mm. The moisture content of biomass needs to be within 15% before entering the reactor.


Biochar Formation

After the reactor is preheated for about 1.5 hours, the biomass enters the biochar furnace through a large-angle belt conveyor. After the reaction temperature reaches 380°C-450°C, the reaction becomes stable. Under anaerobic combustion, internal water, methyl substances (synthesis gases such as hydrogen, methane, ethane, carbon monoxide, etc.), and volatiles in the biomass are continuously released. The result is a carbonaceous residue: biochar. Finally, the biochar is discharged from the water-cooled screw discharger.


Combustible Gas Reuse

The entire reaction produces a large amount of combustible gas. Theoretically, each kilogram of biomass can produce 0.7kg of combustible gas. These combustible gases are first processed by dust removal and condensation. The purified combustible gas then re-enters the combustion system through pipes. Finally, they provide the heat source for the biochar making machine to operate. Not only that, customers can also use special containers to collect combustible gas to provide energy for the whole system.


Flue Gas Treatment

The exhaust gas generated during the entire reaction will enter the spray tower and demister tower through the flue gas pipe. These facilities remove dust and cool down high-temperature flue gas. Finally, the treated flue gas is discharged from the chimney. In particular, if your area has higher emission standards, we offer high-end exhaust treatment systems. The flue gas treated by this system can meet EU emission standards.

Application Scenarios of Biochar Produced by Biochar Machine

Cash Crop Cultivation

Biochar is generally used as a soil additive in cash crop cultivation. It has the following main advantages:

  • Improve Fertility: Biochar is rich in carbon and other nutrients such as nitrogen, phosphorus, potassium, etc. Using biochar can improve soil fertility and promote plant growth.
  • Increase Water Retention: The porous structure of biochar helps absorb water. Thus, this increases the water retention capacity of the soil. Therefore, the drought resistance of the soil increases.
  • Optimize Ph: Biochar has neutral or near-neutral properties. It regulates the pH of the soil. Thus, this provides a suitable growing environment for plants.
  • Promote Microbial Activity: Biochar helps increase the activity and functionality of microorganisms in the soil. This promotes the decomposition of organic matter in the soil and the release of nutrients.

Biochar for Cash Crop Cultivation

Poultry&Livestock Farming

  • Feed Additive: Biochar is used as a feed additive to help maintain the balance of the intestinal microflora of animals. Through adsorption, biochar can reduce the accumulation of harmful substances in the digestive system. This promotes food digestion and nutrient absorption, thereby improving digestive health. Most importantly, biochar may reduce methane emissions from ruminants. This helps reduce its negative impact on climate change.
  • Poultry Bedding: Biochar produced by a biochar production equipment has excellent adsorption properties. Therefore, as poultry bedding, it can absorb and purify harmful gases such as ammonia and hydrogen sulfide in livestock manure. This reduces odor and pollutant emissions. Thus, this improves the breeding environment. In addition, it can absorb moisture in the shed and keep the environment relatively dry. This reduces the growth of bacteria and mold. As a result, biochar is good for the healthy growth of animals.

Carbon Sequestration

Through the biochar production process, the organic matter in the biomass is converted into a stable carbonaceous residue: biochar. Its stable chemical properties and porous physical structure provide sites for adsorption and immobilization of carbon molecules. This makes the carbon in the biochar more stable and less susceptible to microbial degradation or oxidation. Therefore, biochar can be used as a carbon storage carrier to fix carbon in the soil for a long time.

Biochar for Carbon Sequestration

Industrial Energy Supply

  • Industrial Fuel: Biochar can be used as a renewable industrial fuel to replace traditional fossil fuels, such as coal, oil, etc. It can be used in the combustion process of industrial facilities such as power plants and boilers to provide heat and electricity. The use of biochar helps reduce dependence on fossil energy, lower carbon emissions, and mitigate the impact of global climate change.
  • Metal Smelting Reductant: In the metal smelting process, the extraction of some metals requires reducing agents to reduce metal oxides into metals. Biochar can be used as an effective reducing agent in metal smelting, such as in the extraction process of iron, nickel, copper, and other metals. In the reduction reaction, biochar helps reduce metal oxides to their corresponding metals while generating heat energy.

Charcoal-derived Product Processing

  • BBQ Charcoal Processing: BBQ Charcoal made from biochar machine usually has a uniform degree of carbonization and density, with no obvious impurities. Meanwhile, due to the high calorific value and low ash rate of biochar, this kind of barbecue charcoal produces long-lasting heat, stable heat release, and less smoke when burning. In addition, it emits a unique natural plant flavor during burning. These properties make barbecue charcoal ideal for outdoor grilling and cooking.
  • Hookah Charcoal Processing: Using biochar to make hookah charcoal requires special processing. It usually requires steps such as grinding, mixing, and pressing. Like barbecue charcoal, hookah charcoal made from biochar has stable combustion characteristics. In addition, compared with traditional hookah fuel, it is natural and healthy and has a special flavor. These properties make biochar-based hookah charcoal a better smoking experience.
