Mobile Biochar Machine

Mobile biochar machine is a portable device used to produce biochar from organic materials. The machine adopts a modular design, which achieves easy installation and operation. What’s more, as a skid-mounted machine, it occupies a small area. These features make the machine extremely cost-effective. Therefore, for those customers who have small-scale biochar production needs in the early stage, this machine is a good investment option.

Raw Material & End Product of Mobile Biochar Machine

Raw Material: Wide Variety of Biomass

The raw materials for biochar making machines usually include various organic biomass, mainly including the following types of materials:

  • Food processing waste: by-products from food manufacturing processes, including coconut shell charcoal and sugarcane bagasse, etc.
  • Palm processing waste: waste generated during the processing of palm oil products, including palm silk, palm shells, and empty fruit bunches.
  • Garden and wood processing waste: organic waste from garden and wood processing industries, including branches, wood chips, and sawdust.
  • Agricultural waste: organic residues generated from agricultural activities, including straw, rice husk and other agricultural by-products.

End Product: Sustainable Bioproducts

The main products of the mobile biochar machine include biochar, wood vinegar, tar, and combustible gas. The specific proportions may vary depending on the raw materials.

Biochar: Biochar is the main product of the biomass pyrolysis process. It is a porous, carbon-rich material. Biochar plays an important role in many industries, as detailed in the following sections.

Wood vinegar: Wood vinegar is a dark liquid that contains a range of organic compounds. Wood vinegar has a variety of applications, including as a natural insecticide, insect repellent, or flavor enhancer in the food industry.

Tar: Tar is primarily used as a disinfectant and antiseptic. In addition; it can also be used in medicine, synthetic rubber, metallurgy, and other industries. In general, tar is a chemical raw material with high economic value.

Combustible gases: During the biochar production process, flammable gases are generated as a by-product. This gas typically contains carbon monoxide, hydrogen, methane, and other volatile organic compounds. These combustible gases are treated and used again as a heat source to heat the main furnace.

Diversified Applications of Biochar – Turning Waste into Treasure

Soil Remediation

Biochar is commonly used to improve soil quality and fertility. When incorporated into soil, it can enhance water retention, nutrient retention, and microbial activity. It also helps mitigate soil erosion and reduces the leaching of harmful chemicals into groundwater. Biochar acts as a long-term carbon sink in the soil, improving its structure and supporting plant growth.

Feed Additive

In agriculture, biochar can be used as a feed additive for livestock. When added to animal feed, it can improve digestion, reduce methane emissions from enteric fermentation in ruminants, and enhance overall animal health. Biochar in animal feed can be particularly beneficial for reducing greenhouse gas emissions associated with livestock farming.

Carbon Credit

Biochar is a carbon-negative product, meaning it sequesters more carbon dioxide than is emitted during its production and use. This makes it a valuable tool in carbon offset programs and climate change mitigation efforts. Farmers and landowners who incorporate biochar into their agricultural practices may be eligible for carbon credits or carbon trading, helping them generate revenue while reducing their carbon footprint.

Eco-Friendly Fuel

Biochar can be used as a sustainable source of energy. It can be burned as a solid fuel in a controlled manner, releasing energy while trapping carbon dioxide in a stable form. This can be used for cooking, heating, or electricity generation, reducing the reliance on fossil fuels and contributing to lower greenhouse gas emissions.

How to Make Biochar: Process Flow of Portable Biochar Machine

1. Raw material pretreatment

In order to increase the yield of biochar, the moisture content of the feedstock should be less than 15%. You can get the best quality charcoal if the size is between 8 mm and 12 mm. Therefore, we can provide you with dryers and crushers according to your needs.

2. Biomass pyrolysis

After preheating the reactor for 60 to 90 minutes, the raw materials can be fed into the host through the automatic feeding system. The entire biomass pyrolysis process is in a low-oxygen, micro-pressure environment. The reaction temperature is around 280°C.

3. Combustible gas recovery

In addition, after the reaction proceeds for a period of time, the main furnace produces combustible gas. Combustible gas enters the dust removal system through a dedicated pipeline. The purified combustible gas re-enters the combustion chamber to provide the heat source for the main furnace.

Advantages of BST-05Pro Mobile Biochar Machine

Less Cost of Transportation

Due to its small size, Beston mini biochar machine costs less on transportation and installation. Only one container (40HQ) can complete the transportation, which costs less transportation cost. More importantly, transportation adopts the hoisting method, which saves time and effort.

Easy and Quick Installation

The machine has planned and installed the pump valve, pipeline, instrument, and control circuit in the factory. The installation is simple and fast. You can complete the installation in 3-5 working days. Customers can start this machine without a foundation.

Lower Operating Power, Higher Thermal Efficiency

The full load power of the machine is 37kw, and the actual operation is about 60% of the full load. Therefore, the operating power is low. The heat exchanger increases thermal efficiency by 5% to 10%.
