Unlocking the Secrets of Biochar 

What is Biochar? 

Biochar is a real-world application that holds immense promise in the agricultural and industrial sectors, fostering environmental sustainability. 

At its core, biochar is a type of charcoal that is produced through the pyrolysis of organic materials, such as agricultural by-products, wood chips or even certain types of algae. Pyrolysis is a process that involves heating these materials in the absence of oxygen, preventing them from combusting, crucially enriching carbon while reducing the oxygen content. This results in the production of biochar, along with bio-oil and syngas. The carbon-rich nature of biochar gives it its distinct properties and potential benefits.
