Our engineers devoted lots of their researches to Renewable Energy issues. They discovered agricultural waste management situation, and offered their own innovative solution: eco-friendly technology of continuous waste treatment at low temperature.
The technology developed is used in many current projects. Some of them are aimed at pure biomass treatment using raw materials like sunflower husk/shell received in dehulling process of sunflower kernels in industrial oil mills.
Output products of biomass treatment process are:
1) Syngas and liquid fraction used to produce electric and heat power;
2) Pyrochar, which can be used as biochar, primary coal to produce activated coal, in metallurgy or to produce barbecue charcoal briquettes.
Because raw material is uniform, homogenous and clean, without foreign admixtures, and process parameters are stable, our charcoal quality is also very stable.
Initially biochar particles are small (<2 mm), thus we press them into briquettes adding natural potato starch (8% by mass) to receive convenient form for grilling.
