GEMCO Biochar Plant Working Principle

GEMCO biaochar plant converts biomass into carbonaceous products through pyrolysis, dry distillation, and oxidation reactions under high temperature, hypoxia, or low oxygen environments. This carbonization process can effectively degrade organic matter, reduce pollutant emissions, and obtain useful carbonaceous products.

working principle of biomass carbonization

1. Preparation:

Before carbonization, biomass feedstock undergoes preliminary processing, where it is broken down into suitable sizes and shapes in a crusher to facilitate further handling.

2. Drying:

After being crushed, the biomass material is subjected to drying to reduce its moisture content, thereby enhancing carbonization efficiency.

3. Carbonization:

The dried material enters a pyrolysis carbonization furnace and undergoes carbonization, resulting in the production of biochar. Simultaneously, the high-temperature waste heat generated in the pyrolysis reactor can be recovered and utilized to generate energy.

4. Post-processing:

The finished biochar can undergo post-processing, including impurity removal, sieving, grinding, drying, etc., to improve product quality and reduce its moisture content.

Benefits of Biochar

high quality biochar product

Unlike regular wood charcoal used as fuel, biochar has poor combustion performance but excellent carbon capture and carbon sequestration capabilities. It is commonly used as a soil amendment in the field of agriculture.

In recent years, the impact of greenhouse gases such as carbon dioxide, nitrous oxide, and methane emitted by human society on the Earth’s climate has become increasingly apparent. People are now paying more attention to the application of biochar. Through the use of biochar, it is possible to capture and remove greenhouse gases from the atmosphere and transform them into highly stable forms that can be stored in the soil for thousands of years.

Stimulates Crop Growth

Biochar contains mineral nutrients that can effectively provide elements like phosphorus, potassium, calcium, and magnesium to the soil, stimulating plant growth and improving crop quality.

Improve Soil Acidification

Biochar has a naturally weak alkaline pH, which can help improve acidic soils. It also adsorbs heavy metal elements like aluminum and organic pollutants.

Increase Fertilizer Efficiency

When biochar is activated or modified, its water-absorption capacity increases. This helps in retaining moisture and nutrients in the soil, leading to improved overall fertilizer efficiency.

Preserve Soil Microorganisms

Biochar aids in soil insulation, enhances soil aeration, and creates a favorable habitat for microorganisms.
