Beston Group Provides Charcoal Making Machine to Recycle Biomass Waste

What is Beston Charcoal Making Machine?

Charcoal maker machine refers to the equipment to make biomass charcoal in high-temperature and oxygen-free conditions. Utilizing the pyrolysis technology, it transforms carbon and hydrogen elements in the biomass into a high-calorific-value mixture of combustible gases, concurrently yielding charcoal. Biochar production machine is an efficient way for recycling biomass.

Applications of Beston Charcoal Making Machines in Various Industries

Food Processing Recycling Industry

Food Processing Recycling Industry

A large amount of coconut shells, nutshells, coffee husks, and sugarcane bagasse are either dumped or buried. Recycling these biomasses with charcoal making equipment not only reduces waste but also adds industrial and economic value to these sectors.

Agricultural Planting Industry

Agricultural Planting Industry

Agriculture generates a lot of biomass waste like rice husks, straws, grapevines, grape pomace, hemp stalks, etc. Using charcoal machine can reduce environmental pollution caused by burning or landfilling. Additionally, these waste are fully utilized to create renewable resources.

Energy Substitution Industry

Energy Substitution Industry

Many factories choose charcoal as an alternative fuel, such as cement plants, brick factories, power plants, boiler facilities, ceramic factories, and so on. Charcoal is an eco-friendly resource. It has a high calorific value, low ash content, and produces less smoke.

Palm Plantation and Palm Oil Industry

Palm Plantation and Palm Oil Industry

Palm shells, empty fruit bunches, and palm fiber are major biomass wastes in this industry. Transforming them into biomass charcoal has significant economic and energy value for related channels.

Metal Smelting Industry

Metal Smelting Industry

The charcoal produced through charcoal machine maker is a renewable product. The high concentration of carbon monoxide it releases at high temperatures makes it a potent reducing agent. It is used for extracting metals.

Forestry and Wood Industry

Forestry and Wood Industry

wood blocks, tree branches, leaves, sawdust, wood chips, bamboo, composite wood, and wooden products are the main types of biomass waste. The charcoal made by these wood waste is popular in the market.

Carbon Sequestration Industry

Charcoal can stably store carbon over the long term. It helps mitigate climate change and greenhouse gas emissions. This makes biomass charcoal an environmentally friendly and sustainable carbon offset resource.

Impact of Charcoal Making Equipment

Environmental Impact of Charcoal Making Machines

Environment Impact

How to Make Charcoal?

Crushing Process (Optional)

When customers take continuous type, there are some requirements for raw materials. If the size of raw materials is larger than 2.5cm, the biomass needs to be crushed into small pieces by a crushing machine.

Drying Process (Optional)

If the water of materials is more than 15%, the materials need to be dried by dryer.

Feeding Raw Materials

Put waste into the screw feeder by the conveyor. Then, the feeder delivers the waste into a charcoal pyrolysis furnace.

Pyrolysis Process

Heat the reactor. When the temperature reaches 150 degrees, the carbonization process starts. Some raw materials will be broken down into CO, CO2, and a little wood vinegar. When the temperature is up to 350 degrees, the complex reaction begins. And the charcoal is constantly generated. Some other materials are also produced, including CH4 (biogas), H2, wood vinegar, tar, and, ethanol. Material pyrolysis usually takes 15-25 minutes.

Charcoal Discharging Process

Charcoal is discharged by a three-stage water-cooling discharger. Final charcoal reaches no more than 45 degrees.

Combustible Gas Recycling Process

The combustible gas from the main furnace is treated through condensation and sulfur removal. It can serve as fuel for heating the main furnace.

Dedusting Process

There is high-temperature smoke with harmful materials. After being processed by a flue condenser and de-dusting system (water washing, water spray and ceramic ring adsorption), smoke can meet European emission requirements. And it can be directly discharged.
