environmentally friendly production of biochar.

Manufacturing methods

Biochar is created in the pyrolysis process, where biomass is heated in an oxygen-free environment at a temperature of 350-700°C. SoilCare’s devices are batch-operated and are based on slow pyrolysis, producing air-harmful compounds from biochar. The porous structure of biochar and an internal surface area of more than 800 m2/g enable its properties to be adjusted according to the purpose of use.

The choice of raw material and processing process has significant effects on the properties of biochar; a high pyrolysis temperature makes biochar more resistant to decomposition, while a lower temperature preserves more nutrients, which is beneficial in, for example, soil conditioners. The heat generated in the process can be utilized in a variety of ways, for example in heating the biogas process, drying biomass or heating buildings.

Biochar can be produced economically for own use or for sale through the network. Our cooperation with the experienced boiler-manufacturer Ariterm Service Oy enables efficient heat recovery in our mobile devices.
