What is Biochar Machine?

Biochar machine is a good solution to recycle agricultural and forestry waste. Just put the waste biomass in a high-temperature and oxygen-free environment. The charcoal kiln adopts the newest carbonization technology, which can turn raw materials into biochar, wood vinegar and tar.

We can take sawdust as an example. When 1 ton of sawdust with a water content of 10% is processed per hour, you can get about 260kg-310kg of finished biochar, 40-60kg of wood vinegar (PH value of 3-4), and 20-40kg of tar.

Raw Materials That Can Be Used in Biochar Machine for Sale

Biomass is the organic matter produced directly or indirectly by green plants through photosynthesis. It has the advantages of renewable, large reserves, and wide distribution. Of course, it is also the best raw material for making biochar.

Common raw materials are rice husk, wood, sawdust, palm kernel shell(PSK), cocont shell, bamboo, sugarcane bagasse, jute stick, cotton stick, etc. In addition to waste biomass, solid waste containing organic matter such as sludge and domestic waste can also be used to produce biochar.

Requirements on Raw Materials for Making Biochar

Due to the large difference in the original state of biomass, the raw material needs to be pretreated before entering the machine. We need to reduce its moisture content to below 15% and keep the size within 20mm. The best feed size is 5–8mm.  After pretreatment, the efficiency of the feeding system can be improved. Not only that, but it also improves the quality of biochar.

To support your biochar business, Beston also offers dryers and crushers to process raw materials. If you are not sure whether your raw materials meet the requirements, please contact Beston Group. We provide you with raw material testing services. Find more information of recycling waste biomass on Beston Pinterest.

Final Products You Can Get From the Biochar Machine

The final products of biochar making machine are biochar, wood vinegar and tar.

The proportion of the final product is about: 30% biochar, about 56% combustible gas, 8% wood vinegar, 2% tar, the remaining 2% water and 2% dust.

Importance of Biochar – Wide Applications

Good Fertilizer

Biochar is a great way to improve soil due to its porosity and better adsorption. Adding biochar to fertilizers can enhance soil fertility and absorb heavy metal pollution. In addition, biochar helps plants grow.

Biochar in Animal Husbandry

Whether using biochar for feeding, litter or slurry treatment, farmers can quickly notice a reduction in odor. When biochar is used as a feed supplement, it can reduce the rate of diarrhea, increase feed intake, and relieve allergies.

Biochar in Carbon Credit Market

As a carbon-loaded product, biochar has certain value in the carbon trading market. Carbon credits can be obtained and sold by using biochar in projects such as soil improvement, agricultural fields or water treatment.

First Choice for BBQ Charcoal

Biochar mostly comes from fruit tree fertilizers. Due to its high calorific value, fruit charcoal is smokeless and tasteless when burned, and is often used as barbecue charcoal or other catering industries.

Make Shisha Charcoal

After extrusion and molding, you can further process the biochar into shisha charcoal. With the popularity of hookah around the world, the demand for hookah coals is rising fast.

Other Industrial Uses

Adsorbents in functional clothing, insulation in the construction industry, carbon electrodes in supercapacitors for energy storage, food packaging, wastewater treatment, air purification, silage or feed supplements.

Exactly How Does Biochar Maker Work?

After putting raw materials into the biochar reactor, the reaction process can be divided into the drying stage, carbonization stage, and end-product collection stage. During this process, the highest temperature can reach about 400°C.

Please watch the video to know the detailed biochar making process.

Differences Between Beston Biochar Machine and Traditional Biochar Production


Beston biochar production line is equipped with a purification system, which can perform three water spraying and adsorption treatments on the exhaust gas discharged from the production, and finally emit combustible gas.

High Efficiency

The traditional charcoal production method is inefficient and can only produce one batch a day. Beston biochar maker for sale can produce continuously.

Small Footprint

The traditional charcoal machine needs to build its own charcoal making furnace and drying furnace, while Beston biochar machine is reasonably designed, which can save space and labor costs.

Low Production Cost

This is a waste recycling project, and most customers can get a lot of raw materials at low prices. Biochar production cost is cheap in many places. A lot of biochar market analysis has confirmed this.

Simple Process

If you use Beston’s fully continuous carbonizer machine, you will find that the process of making biochar is very simple. You can get a lot of high-value biochar in a short amount of time.
