Biochar is an alternative fuel option. More and more investors are starting to produce and sell biochar. This biochar is now being used in many fields. Moreover, it is economical and has a high calorific value. If you are wondering why you choose biochar as an alternative fuel or what is a fuel alternative, you can read below.
Trends in Finding Fuel Alternatives
Global oil prices are on an overall upward trend. And oil is a non-renewable resource. Global oil reserves are dwindling. Finding a suitable alternative fuel is an inevitable trend. Natural gas is a green fuel. However, it places high demands on the storage carrier. As a result, investors look for alternative fuels that are quick and easy to use.
Why is Biochar a Good Alternative Fuel Choice?
Bio char can now be used as an alternative fuel with a huge market potential for the following reasons:
- The raw material is mostly waste biomass. It has the characteristics of easy acquisition, low cost and wide sources. At the same time, this can help improve the recycling rate of agricultural biomass waste.
- If a suitable biochar production solution is selected, the production process is non-polluting to the environment. Moreover, the equipment is highly operable and easy to realize large-scale biochar production.
- Biochar can be processed into any shape. In this way, it is convenient to store and use.
- Biochar is rich in carbon elements, highly stable, and has high calorific value.

Advantages of Choosing Beston Charcoal Making Machine
Because the whole process is tightly sealed and the parameters are strictly controlled, the final biochar is of high quality. Moreover, the parameters of the biochar pyrolysis equipment can be adjusted according to the customer’s demand for biochar.
In order to ensure the quality of the charcoal making equipment before leaving the factory, it can only leave the factory after being checked by the three departments of production department, quality inspection department and design department.
Customers could remotely use mobile devices to monitor and adjust carbonization project operations in real time. Customers can also set alarm events to monitor according to parameters.
The PLC electric cabinet has an alarm device, and there will be an alarm if the electrical part fails or the pipeline is blocked. It can prompt the workers to run error information in time.
How to Use Beston Biomass Charcoal Making Solution to Produce Charcoal?
Confirm that the material meets the requirements for carbonization. Different models and different biochar applications have different requirements on the type, size and moisture of the raw material. In this way, the quality and production efficiency of biochar can be improved.
The material is transported to the main carbonization furnace in a sealed condition.
Heat the main furnace. As the temperature rises, the carbonization reaction intensifies. Biochar is continuously produced.
Water-cooled slag discharge system/manual discharge of biochar. If a water-cooled slag removal system is used, the final biochar temperature will be about 30 degrees.
Solutions of Biomass Charcoal as Fuel Alternative Applied to the Global World
Beston not only provides customers with biomass carbonization equipment, but also provides biochar as an alternative fuel solution. Up to now, Beston biochar production program has been applied to more than 30 countries.
The biomass raw materials of these solutions are rich, including wood chips, palm kernel, bamboo, coconut shell, rice husk, coffee bean shell, olive shell, hazelnut shell, straw, etc. If the raw material contains a lot of moisture, Beston can provide drying Wire. If the raw material is oversized, Beston can provide a crushing line.
The shape of the final char differs for these solutions. Beston can customize the forming line according to the needs of customers. The forming line can make biochar into various shapes to meet customer needs.
