Our biochar machine, also known as biomass pyrolysis plant,  is able to produce bio-charcoal from biomass. Biomass is an industry term for getting energy (biochar or biofuel) by burning wood and all other organic matters. There is a large variety of organic waste, therefore, biomass turns to be very important and useful in the industry of “waste to energy”. Various methods of biochar production from biomass have sprung up recent years, and Beston’s biochar making machines just come into season at the right moment.

Biochar Production Technology – Carbonization

During the high temperature carbonization process, the biomass is carbonized into bio-charcoal in a micro-oxygen environment. Except for biochar, there are also byproducts like combustible gas, wood vinegar and tar generated in the process. Owing to the differences between the raw materials, the biochar will be different. Generally, our biochar production units can process wood, rice husk, coconut shells, sawdust, straw, bamboo, palm kernel shells and sewage sludge, etc. But theoretically, it can process all the organic wastes.

Note: because of different raw materials, the charcoal yield will be different.

Biochar Production Process

  1. Drying. The constant weight feeder transits biomass waste (usually in small pieces) to the drying host by belt conveyor. Biomass will go through a series of processing like drying and flash steaming and then go to the biochar reactor.
  2. Carbonizing. Biomass will go through carbonization and pyrolysis in the host of carbonization. In a high-temperature environment, the dried materials will turn to carbide. After the smoke is discharged and the sulfur is removed, you will get the final product: biochar.
  3. The combustible gas generated during the process of biochar production will go to the condenser and then be separated into wood vinegar and tar. And the flue gas will go through a strict filtering system including de-dusting, de-sulfurization, water spray, and cleansing and then be discharged to the outside safely.

Applications of End Products


  • Used as fuel in BBQ, steel factories, ceramics and so on.
  • Used as fertilizer to attach heavy metal in soil and improve the quality of the field.
  • Reprocessed into activated carbon and used in much wider fields.
  • Used to make construction bricks with clay.

Wood Vinegar: used in agriculture because of the characteristics of antibiosis and insect-resist

Tar: raw materials to make plastic, synthetic fiber, dye, rubber, refractory materials, etc.

Biogas: widely used as fuel; used for drying system of the charcoal manufacturing plant, industrial fuel and help generator to generate electricity; can be used for greenhouse heating system.

Why You Choose Beston Group

We Are Unique in Designing Biochar Production Equipment

  • Unique Heating Method: One Fire Two Steps. We are the only charcoal making machine manufacturer who adopts this unique heating structure. It means we use only one fire to supply heat for both drying and carbonization hosts. Residual hot smoke generated during the process of carbonization is collected and used to provide heat for drying. So, it largely improves the heat utilization and reduces the cost of fuel for the customer.
  • Unique Structure. The structure of this biochar production equipment adopts double-layer design, the upper one for drying and the lower one for carbonizing. This design facilitates the One Fire Two Steps heating method and makes sure there is no heat waste.

We Focus on Eco-Friendly Design

  • We have particular de-dusting, desulfurization, cooling and filtering systems to filter the combustible gas and residual gas generated during carbonization.
  • The feeding and discharging are sealed to make sure no ashes or dirt posing to the surroundings.
  • We make sure the smoke discharging into the environment meets the EU environmental protection emission standard.

Tips for You While Using the Biochar Making Machine

  1. The temperature of the biochar making reactor is between 400℃ and 600℃. Higher temperature brings the higher efficiency of carbonizing. As a result,  you should pay much attention to the temperature.
  2. The water content of the biomass. To keep a high efficiency of drying, you should make sure the water content of the raw materials within 20%.
  3. Size of the raw materials shall not exceed 20 mm in diameter.
  4. The heat source can be coal, natural gas, etc.

Whether you plan to do meaningful things for waste recycling or invest in commercial biochar production, you can choose this biochar production equipment for sale. This high-output and energy-saving machine can help you to reach to both goals.
