Biochar Processing from Wood

KERONE is pioneer in application and implementation engineering with its vast experience and team of professionals. KERONE is devoted to serve the industry to optimize their operations both economically and environmentally with its specialized heating and drying solutions.

KERONE has developed a new pyrolysis plant technology that enables biomass to be converted on-the-spot into high value biochar product. Pyrolysis is the high-temperature treatment of wood waste in a low-oxygen atmosphere to manufacture a special type of char called as biochar, which has a variety of valuable applications. The technology is especially useful for the treatment of invasive pest tree and plant species, providing a way of complete destruction with minimal risk of spread. A complicated thermal oxidiser arrangement also makes the technology suitable for contaminated biomass sources where contaminants can be volatilised and destroyed in the high-temperature afterburner flue system.

Key Features
  • Easily transportable unit with access to most remote areas.
  • Batch processing with 13 and 30 m3 internal volume per batch.
  • Pyrolysis converts biomass to 1–2.5 tons of biochar per batch.
  • Batch processing takes a few hours (normally 4–6 hrs. per batch)
  • Targeted temperature range can be selected (300–550 °C).
  • Destruction of all pathogens.
  • High-quality char product with a very high fixed carbon content.
  • Very low to zero smoke emissions.
  • Minimal operating costs: unit operates itself after loading with auto-turn off at end of run, and can be operated unattended.
