Use Biochar Pyrolysis Equipment to Make Green Biochar

What is the Pyrolysis of Biochar?

Biochar pyrolysis involves heating biomass at high-temperature with limited oxygen to decompose it into biomass charcoal. The entire process includes drying, devolatilization, and thermal decomposition. Initially, the moisture from the biomass is removed, followed by the release of tar and gases in gaseous form. Finally, the remaining biomass transforms into biochar. Beston charcoal manufacturing equipment produces various qualities of biomass biochar by adjusting parameters under the guidance of Beston engineers.

What is the Biochar Pyrolysis Process?


Ensure biomass raw materials meet the feed requirements. Typically, moisture content should be less than 15%. Particle size ideally ranges from 5-8mm (using the BST series). Feed the biomass into the main furnace.


Preheat the main furnace. As the temperature remains below 180 degrees Celsius, moisture content in the biomass decreases. When the temperature reaches 280-450 degrees Celsius, biomass charcoal, combustible gas, tar, wood vinegar, and exhaust gas are produced.


After undergoing two-stage water cooling discharging treatment, the temperature of the biomass charcoal is reduced to below 45 degrees Celsius. This prevents the occurrence of spontaneous combustion due to high temperatures.

Recovery of Combustible Gas

During the biochar pyrolyis process, a large amount of combustible gas is generated. This type of gas can be directly used for heating the main furnace after condensation and desulfurization.

Exhaust Gas Treatment

The exhaust gas generated in the main furnace enters the de-dusting system through the flue gas pipeline. After dust removal, the exhaust gas meets emission standards. If a high-end de-dusting system is used to treat the exhaust gas, it will comply with European emission standards.

The Various Applications of Biochar from Pyrolysis

Biochar Used for Soil

Soil Remediation

Biochar has a stable carbon structure. Its porosity effectively retains water and water-soluble nutrients. It is used to increase soil fertility, reduce soil acidity, and increase agricultural productivity.

Carbon Sink

Carbon Sequestration

Biochar has a high carbon content. It can be stored underground for thousands of years. It helps to slow carbon dioxide emissions and improve climate change.

BBQ Biochar

BBQ Charcoal/Shisha Charcoal

Biochar enters these charcoal briquette making lines to reshape its composition and shape for making BBQ charcoal or Shisha charcoal. The final charcoal has high economic value.

Biochar Used for Animal Husbandry

Animal Feed

Due to the characteristics of biomass charcoal, feed supplemented with biomass charcoal has positive effects on animal digestive systems, such as adsorbing harmful substances, promoting digestion, reducing greenhouse gas emissions, and so on.

Cement Factory

Alternative Energy Source

Biomass charcoal has a high calorific value, low ash content, and long burning time. Therefore, some factories use biomass charcoal as an alternative fuel, such as cement plants, boiler plants, brick plants, waste-to-energy plants, ceramic plants, ships, etc.

Fly Ash Bricks

Building Materials

Biomass charcoal is now being applied to building materials. It has advantages such as insulation, moisture regulation, adsorption of harmful gases, etc. It helps to improve the energy efficiency, comfort, and environmental friendliness of buildings.


Biomass charcoal has good reducibility. The abundant carbon elements can help reduce metal oxides to metals. Additionally, the carbon elements in biomass can be controlled.
