SLOW PYROLYSIS

Highest Carbon Sequestration Potential

Biochar is produced by pyrolysis, a process in which biomass is heated in an oxygen-deprived environment to break down into simpler substances. There are two types of pyrolysis: fast and slow.

Fast pyrolysis uses moderate to high temperatures and rapid heating of wood chips while slow pyrolysis is characterized by gradual heating over a wide range of temperatures to produces its biochar.

Biochar Now uses slow pyrolysis to permit various wood sizes, moistures and nature’s anomalies to be slowly processed into consistent, high quality biochar.
