BioChar

BioChar

When added into the soil, biochar enables soil aeration and allow roots to move more easily through the soil. This increases product efficiency and soil quality and makes soil retain more water. Another considerable positive effect is it helps adjust the pH of soil.

Product efficiency and soil quality increase.

Along with the advantages provided to a plant, the positive effect directly to the environment is related to carbon embedding under the earth.

Unless being treated with TCP, wastes containing carbon are often dried which consume energy and afterwards incinerated or landfilled. Thanks to TCP, these wastes are converted into gas and liquid fuel. The residual carbon content is used as a soil conditioner along with many other minerals, especially potassium. At the same time, because Biochar improves soil quality, which helps with more plant growth, and more photosynthesis is performed. This enables it to benefit more from solar energy and more carbon dioxide consumption from the atmosphere. In this respect Biochar is considered as a miracle method by scientists (from various University Departments such as Prof. Rattan Lal, Ohio State University and James (Jim) Hansen from NASA) to prevent climate deteriorations.

Generally, there are methods on direct Biochar production from plants and other organic wastes. Yielding it as a by-product in technologies such as Pyrolysis and TCP provides an important advantage. The biggest advantage of TCP Biochar compared to the Pyrolysis is that TCP gives out more useful minerals thanks to the ability of using aqueous wastes as a raw material.
