Biomass Pyrolysis Plant

As the issue of waste biomass treatment continues to receive attention, biomass pyrolysis plant has become a new trend to solve this problem. This kind of machine can convert a wide range of organic materials, including agricultural residues, wood, and other biomass waste, into valuable biochar. The plant can solve waste management. At the same time, it can also create jobs and economic opportunities in areas rich in biomass resources. Therefore, more customers choose to invest in biomass pyrolysis plants.

Biomass Pyrolysis Plant

What is Biomass?

Biomass refers to organic materials, often of biological origin, that can be used as a source of renewable energy. These materials typically include plant matter, wood, agricultural residues, and organic waste. However, various industries generate large amounts of biomass. As these resources accumulate, efficient processing methods are required. Otherwise, there will be many negative impacts.

Types of Biomass

woody biomass

Woody Biomass:

Including wood logs, wood processing waste, bamboo, etc.

Crop residues

Crop Residues:

Including wheat straw, rice husks, corn stalks, etc.

Food waste

Food Waste:

Including empty fruit bunches, coconut shells, sugarcane bagasse, etc.

Disadvantages of Improper Handling of Biomass

burning biomass

Emission of Greenhouse Gases

Stacking or burning large amounts of biomass can have environmental impacts. This releases carbon dioxide, methane, and other greenhouse gases into the atmosphere, exacerbating climate change.

composting biomass

Negative Effects of Composting

Using biomass directly into compost causes odor issues. Microbial decomposition of compost releases gases such as ammonia, methane, and hydrogen sulfide. This has a negative impact on air quality.

Waste of biomass

Waste of Resources

Biomass can be used as an important source of renewable energy. Without proper energy development and utilization, biomass resources will be wasted rather than replacing traditional fossil fuels.

What is Biomass Pyrolysis Equipment?

Biomass pyrolysis equipment is a machine used to convert biomass materials into useful energy and chemical products. This technology involves pyrolysis of biomass at high temperatures and in an oxygen-deficient or low-oxygen environment. The process involves breaking down the organic matter of biomass. Thus, products such as biochar, syngas, wood vinegar and tar are produced in this process.

Diverse Applications of Biomass Pyrolysis Products

Biochar Uses

Soil Improvement:

Incorporating biochar into soil has the potential to improve soil fertility. Additionally, it has a remarkable ability to enhance its water-holding capacity. Biochar is therefore a valuable amendment for sustainable agriculture.

Feed Additives:

Farmers add biochar to livestock feed as a feed additive. Adding biochar to livestock feed can have a positive impact on digestion, absorption, and reduction of harmful pathogens in the gastrointestinal tract.

Carbon Sequestration:

Biochar plays a vital role in sequestering carbon in soil, which not only mitigates climate change but also helps generate carbon credits. Once a biomass pyrolysis project is certified, the carbon credits can be directly traded.

Heat Source:

Due to its good combustion properties, some factories directly use biochar as fuel. Besides, because of the nice flavor, Biomass charcoal becomes the raw material for hookah charcoal and BBQ charcoal.

Wood Vinegar/Tar/Combustible Gas Uses

Wood Vinegar

  • Farmland and gardens use wood vinegar to control pests
  • Places with unpleasant odors use wood vinegar to deodorize
  • Health care uses wood vinegar to prevent bacteria and sterilize.


  • Preparation of asphalt pavement using tar to repair the road surface
  • Manufacture of paints and coatings uses tar to enhance performance.
  • Preservative treatment of wood increases its durability with tar.

Combustible Gas

  • Provide heat source for the main pyrolysis furnace and other equipment
  • Provide heat source for power plant boilers (note: Beston machines can only provide combustible gas and are not responsible for power generation related matters)
