Carbonization Machine – Turn Waste Biomass into Things of Value

Annually, the world generates a staggering 140 billion metric tons of biomass waste. This presents significant management problems. This is because discarded biomass can have negative environmental impacts, such as soil and water pollution. Now carbonization technology offers a sustainable solution to this biomass waste challenge. Through a high-temperature and low-oxygen pyrolysis process, the machine turns useless biomass waste into useful biochar, syn-gas, wood vinegar, and tar. This not only reduces environmental damage but also creates economic value. The innovation will play a vital role in tackling waste-related challenges and advancing a more sustainable and circular economy.

End Products and Their Distribution Proportion

Carbonizing machine can produce several valuable end products from organic materials. These end products include biochar, wood vinegar, tar, and syngas. Please read on for more information.

End products we can get

Biochar from Pyrolysis

Biochar is the primary product of wood charcoal making machine. It is a carbon-rich, porous material produced through the pyrolysis of biomass. The biochar is widely used as fuel in industries and daily life. It can be also used for soil restoration, carbon sequestration, and carbon credits. Moreover, it can be used in animal husbandry for feeding and environmental management

Wood Vinegar coming from Pyrolysis
Wood vinegar

Wood vinegar, also known as wood pyroligneous acid or wood tar, is a byproduct of the pyrolysis process. It is a dark, liquid substance with a pungent odor. Wood vinegar has various applications, including as a natural pesticide, plant growth enhancer, and as an ingredient in cosmetics and traditional medicine.

Tar coming from Pyrolysis

Tar is another byproduct of the pyrolysis process. It is typically a thick, sticky substance. It has various industrial uses, such as in road construction, roofing, or as a binder in the production of charcoal briquettes.

Syngas generated in Pyrolysis

Syngas typically contain a combination of carbon monoxide (CO), hydrogen (H2), methane (CH4), and other trace gases. Usually, syngas produced in the pyrolysis process are directly used to heat the reactor. It can be also collected and processed to produce fuels like synthetic natural gas or liquid biofuels.

End products proportion
Raw materials End products Proportion
Raw materials with 10% moisture content biochar 30%
Wood vinegar 56%
tar 8%
syngas 2%
water 2%
dust 2%

Note: If you want to calculate the approximate biochar yield, you can use the following method.
For 1 ton of biomass, if the moisture content is 10%, the biochar yield is approximately 33.3%. If the moisture content exceeds 30%, you can get the biochar yield by subtracting the weight of the moisture from the original material and dividing it by three.

Working Process of Carbonization Equipment – Recycling Biomass Waste

Here outlines the process of how biomass carbonization machine recycle biomass waste to make charcoal. You can either read for more information or visit YouTube to gain a deeper understanding.

  1. Raw material pretreatment: Biomass raw materials are processed through processes such as drying and crushing to meet the requirements for machine feeding.
  2. Feeding and preheating: After pretreatment, biomass raw materials are fed into the pyrolysis furnace either manually or automatically. Then, heat the furnace for about 60-90 minutes.
  3. Pyrolysis reaction: At a high temperature of 380℃to 450℃, the low-oxygen biochar reactor releases volatile substances of biomass. At the same time, the reactor retains the solid carbon part to form biochar.
  4. Cooling and collection: After the pyrolysis process, biochar enters the cooling zone and is collected after cooling to below 45 ℃.

Note: Biochar production is complex and involves many other processes, such as waste gas treatment and temperature control requirements. It is necessary to analyze and adjust the process according to the specific situation.
