What is Biochar Pyrolysis Equipment?

Biochar pyrolysis equipment is a type of machinery that uses pyrolysis technology to convert biomass (such as agricultural and forestry waste) into biochar. Pyrolysis of biochar is a process of heating organic materials in the absence of oxygen, which causes them to break down into smaller molecules and release volatile gases. The resulting biochar is a stable form of carbon that can be used to improve soil fertility, store carbon, and produce energy. The biochar pyrolysis technology is considered to be an environmentally friendly technology because it converts waste biomass into a useful product while reducing greenhouse gas emissions.

Biochar pyrolysis equipment may also be referred to as biomass pyrolysis equipment, biochar production equipment, or charcoal making machine. It may also be called a biochar reactor or a pyrolysis reactor, depending on the specific design and application of the equipment. Other terms that may be used in relation to biochar pyrolysis equipment include carbonization equipment, thermal conversion systems, and biomass conversion units.

Applications of Biochar Pyrolysis Equipment

Biochar pyrolysis equipment is emerging as a key technology for managing organic waste and reducing greenhouse gas emissions. This versatile tool can convert a wide range of biomass feedstocks into high-quality biochar, as well as other valuable products such as wood vinegar, tar as well as combustible gas. Here are some of the ways in which biochar pyrolysis equipment is being used in many areas.

Recycle agricultural and forestry waste

Recycle agricultural and forestry waste

The biochar pyrolysis equipment can be used for processing agricultural and forestry waste, such as wood chips, sawdust, bamboo, rice husk, coconut shell, palm kernel shell, straw and other biomass feedstocks. The equipment can convert the above raw materials into biochar, which can not only treat the waste, but also product valuable biochar energy.

Industrial hookah charcoal/BBQ charcoal production

BBQ charcoal production

Biochar pyrolysis machine can also be used to produce high-quality biochar for industrial and commercial applications, such as hookah charcoal and BBQ charcoal. The equipment can produce biochar with higher carbon content and lower emissions. The produced hookah and BBQ charcoal can be applied in cooking, daily life and commercial use.

Sewage sludge reduction

Sewage sludge reduction

Biochar pyrolysis can also be used to process sewage sludge, reducing the volume and produce useful resource, sludge carbon. This can help mitigate the environmental and health risks associated with sewage disposal, while producing a valuable soil amendment that can enhance soil quality and reduce water pollution.

Making alternative fuel for industry plants

Making alternative fuel for industry plants by biochar pyrolysis equipment

After pyrolysis biochar production, the produced biochar and combustible gas can be used as alternative fuels for industrial plants, such as cement plants, boiler plants, brick plants, ceramic plants, power plants, glass factory, ships, etc. By reducing the reliance on fossil fuels and lowering carbon emissions, the pyrolysis of biochar technology can help mitigate climate change and promote a cleaner and more sustainable energy system.

Soil remediation and improvement

Soil remediation and improvement by biochar pyrolysis machine

Biochar produced by pyrolysis equipment can be used as a soil amendment to improve soil quality, increase nutrient retention, and enhance crop growth. Its high porosity and surface area can also help reduce soil erosion, water pollution, and soil-borne diseases. In addition, the biochar use in agriculture can sequester carbon in soil for hundreds or even thousands of years, making it an effective tool for carbon sequestration and emission reduction.

Carbon sequestration and emission reduction

Carbon sequestration and emission reduction

As mentioned earlier, biochar can sequester carbon in soil, making it an important tool for carbon sequestration and emission reduction. By creating carbon sinks and generating carbon credits, biochar pyrolysis equipment can incentivize the reduction of greenhouse gas emissions and promote climate action. This technology can also be used to offset carbon emissions from industries and transportation, making it a key part of a holistic climate strategy.

What is Biochar Pyrolysis Process?

  • Raw materials: All biomass materials, such as wood chip, wood, coconut shell, rice husk, sludge, peach kernel, sawdust, etc.;
  • Input: Size<2cm (5-8mm is better, if>2cm, crusher is needed.);
  • Moisture:<15% (If>15%, dryer is needed; one set dryer can reduce about 30% moisture.);
  • Output: biochar, wood vinegar, tar and combustible gas;
  • Biochar yield: 3:1.

Note: based on experience, if the moisture is 10%, the biomass carbonization ratio is 3:1. (Input 3 tons biomass, and output 1 ton biochar.)

biochar pyrolysis process

  1. The biomass materials need to be shredded to less than 2cm by crusher。
  2. Pre-heating the biochar pyrolysis reactor for 1-1.5h by your own fuel, LPG, natural gas or diesel, and the high-temperature exhaust gas will be recycled to dryer for drying materials.
  3. The raw materials can be fed into the dryer by belt conveyor. (If your shredder materials moisture<15% or you can drying them naturally to<15%, no need on the dryer). The materials will be dried by high-temperature exhaust gas generated from carbonization reactor system. The final exhaust gas can be discharged after de-dusting system.
  4. The raw materials will be transferred to carbonization reactor system, and it takes about 20 min to get biochar. During the biochar pyrolysis process, there is biogas generated and delivered to hydro-seal to be cleaned and return back to reactor combustion chamber for heating as substitute fuel. In this way, it can save your much fuel cost. The excess biogas will be burned out in waste gas combustion chamber.
  5. Final biochar will be discharged safely by water cooling auto screw discharger.
