What Is Biochar?

Biochar is similar to the charcoal we see in daily life. It is a light black residue that is left over from the pyrolysis of biomass. It is a stable solid rich in another chemical, pyrogenic carbon, biochar can remain in the soil for thousands of years. In addition to its many positive effects in agriculture, biochar also has advantages that cannot be ignored in industry. As mentioned above, since biochar is formed from biomass, this resource can actually be recycled. In this article, we will explain the production process of biochar production.

How to make biochar?

In addition to artificially formed biochar, natural biochar can be formed under some special circumstances. For example, after a forest fire, natural biochar is formed when layers of vegetation are burned on the forest floor. In the manual process, there is no hot flame in the biorchar kiln. Instead, different types of organisms are slowly baked in the process until they become carbon-rich charcoal. In this setting, the process of biochar production can be separated as following parts.

Pyrolysis Biochar

As mentioned above, organisms are undergoing slowly heating and this part is pyrolysis. It refers to the thermal decomposition of biomass into a carbon-rich solid residue in a limited oxygen environment. It is worth mentioning that during this process, we will see many common raw materials of biomass in daily life, such as coconut shells, bamboo, etc. During the pyrolysis process, these materials need to undergo drying and conditioning. Most biomass is mainly composed of five main components: cellulose, hemicellulose, lignin, water and minerals., the proportions of which depend on the source. Decomposing required specific temperature, most of water is removed when biomass is heated above 100℃. Then biomass begins to decompose when the temperature rise to 150℃.

We can see that the biomass plays a significant role in the biochar production. Generally speaking, there are many types of biomass, and different classifications will be used in different areas in further process. For example, wood chips, rise husk, peanuts shell, bamboo, etc,.


Carbonisation basically is the branch from pyrolysis process. Carbonisation mainly refers to the enrichment of carbon, which is the art of reinventing the waste biomass into a carbon-/energy-rich charcoal. It redefines the principles of renewable energy and power generation, this is also very consistent with the company’s ecological and environmental protection concepts and social responsibility. The main purpose of the carbonization process, as the name suggests, is to obtain the most fixed carbon. Different types and shapes of solid carbon have different uses in various industries. Therefore, in order to cater to the various needs of customers and improve the efficiency of the production process, our company has developed integrated equipment: biomass carbonization plant. This machine combines the thermal decomposition and carbonization of biomass, as well as the final shaping function.

It is also worth mentioning that the production of biochar is also conducive to the It is also worth mentioning that the production of biochar is also conducive to the development of the activated carbon industry. In recent years, in order to implement the idea of green production capacity, our company has developed a series of products for activated carbon plants. For further information, you can click above hyperlink.
