The company developed its own computer control electronics and software to manage multi-zone inputs and outputs relating to temperature, flow, pressure, combustion and time. Software recipes permit autopilot operation while adapting to nature’s anomalies to consistently produce high-quality biochar.
The control system is a key element needed to make each kiln a freestanding biochar factory. With this feature, production capacity can grow simply by adding more kilns. It also allows greater site reliability because if one kiln has a problem, the other kilns are unaffected.
