What Kind of Biochar Can be Used in Pyrolysis?

Almost all kinds of fiber-rich biomass can be used for pyrolysis!

Common materials are rice husk, straw, coconut shells, palm shells, wood, sawdust, jute stick, bamboo, sugarcane bagasse and so on.

Besides waste biomass, other solid waste like sewage sludge, household waste, medical waste, etc. Can be used to make charcoal!

What Can You Get From Biomass Pyrolysis?

After pyrolysis, you can get valuable products including biochar, wood vinegar and tar.

The EU recognizes biochar as a valid technology for long-term carbon storage in soils. So the use of biochar as a soil amendment is a promising agricultural practice. Besides, wood vinegar and tar also contribute a lot to agriculture and other industries. Here we introduce a few applications of the final products of biomass pyrolysis.

What’s the Biochar Pyrolysis Process?

To get biochar with better quality. The moisture content of raw materials should be controlled below 15%. Then it comes to the first step – drying.

Beston biochar furnace is duoble-layer design. When the temprature reaches about 150°C, excess water will be evaporated. At this stage, the chemical composition of the material does not change.

When the temorature reaches about 150°C-300°C, the pyrolysis reaction of the material is obvious, and the chemical composition begins to change. Unstable costs such as hemicellulose are decomposed into CO2, CO and a small amount of acetic acid.

When the tenprature reaches about 300°C-600°C, Materials undergo various complex physical and chemical reactions. This is the main stage of charcoal production. The liquids produced in this stage are acetic acid, tar and ethanol, and the gases produced are CO2, CO, CH4, H2, etc.

The temperature continues to increase at this stage, which is to discharge the volatile substances remaining in the charcoal and increase the fixed carbon content in the charcoal.

Batch Biomass Pyrolysis Equipment

Batch biomass pyrolysis equipment means that you need to wait for the equipment to cool down before starting the next one. If you want to change the raw materials for pyrolysis, you can address this variation when the next transition. What’s more, batch production can help you improve charcoal quality and reduce waste.  Get more infomation from LinkedIn.

Continuous Biomass Pyrolysis Equipment

Continuous biomass pyrolysis equipment realizes continuous production without waiting or interruption. The output of continuous biomass pyrolysis equipment is generally larger. As a result, there is automatic control of time and the direct labor content is reduced. You can get quick return with this machine.

How Much Biochar Can I Get?

Beston biochar pyrolysis plant has a standard set of workflows and has achieved optimal performance through many experiments. Taking wood chips, rice husks or crushed coconut shells as an example, about 280kg-310kg of biochar can be precipitated per ton of raw materials with a moisture content of less than 10%. After removing the water, the biochar yield can be basically maintained at 3:1.

Charcoal making equipment can handle many and complex raw materials. For more precise figures, you can contact Beston and send samples. We have prototypes specially designed to test carbon yields for customers.
