Why Biomass Pyrolysis?

Biomass pyrolysis offers multiple environmental and economic benefits, which is why it is increasingly recommended.

Environmental friendliness

As biomass undergoes pyrolysis, it is transformed into valuable biochar, bio-oil, and biogas. This process occurs in the absence of oxygen. So it minimizes the release of harmful emissions commonly associated with traditional combustion methods. Moreover, biochar can promote carbon sequestration, making biomass pyrolysis one of the eco-friendly solutions to combat climate change.

Economic potential

The economic benefit of biomass pyrolysis stems from its ability to turn organic waste into valuable products. The end products, biochar, bio-oil, and syngas, find applications in agriculture, energy generation, and other industries. This creates a sustainable revenue stream. Additionally, biomass pyrolysis projects present lucrative opportunities for investment, job creation, and economic growth.

Environmental and Economic Benefits of Biomass Pyrolysis

What Is Biomass?

Biomass refers to organic materials, primarily plant and animal matter, that can be used as a source of energy. This can include a wide range of biological materials, such as wood, crop residues, animal manure, etc. Here are the two main types of biomass.

Woody biomass

Includes wood branches, wood chips, wood shavings, sawdust etc.

What Can a Biomass Pyrolysis Plant Does?

Biomass pyrolysis equipment is designed to convert biomass into charcoal through pyrolysis process. Pyrolysis is a thermochemical decomposition of organic matter at elevated temperatures in the absence of oxygen. The primary products of biomass pyrolysis are biochar, bio-oil, and syngas.

How Does the Biomass Pyrolysis Process Work?

1. Biomass preparation
  • moisture≤15%;
  • size≤20mm (5-8mm is the best).
2. Feeding

Load prepared biomass to the pyrolysis reactor by a screw feeder.

3. Heating

Heat the pyrolysis reactor for 60-90 minutes.

4. Pyrolysis(Carbonization)

At around 150℃, biomass will begin to decompose. At around 350℃, charcoal will continuously be produced. After 15-20 minutes, the reaction concludes.

5. Cooling discharging

The produced charcoal will be discharged safely by the water-cooling screw auto discharger. Its temperature will be reduced to below 45℃.

6. Exhaust gas treatment

The hot smoke from the reactor is discharged up to standard after multiple dust removal treatments (cyclone, dedusting water spray, ceramic ring absorption, and the defogging plate).

Applications of Biomass Pyrolysis Output

The thermal decomposition process yields valuable by-products such as biochar, wood vinegar, tar, and biogas. Biochar, a carbon-rich material, finds diverse applications across various industries. Additionally, wood vinegar, tar, and biogas each have distinctive uses.

Biochar use
Biochar for soil improvement or remediation
Soil improvement: The porous structure of biochar enhances soil water retention and aeration. Its outstanding adsorptive capacity allows it to absorb detrimental substances like heavy metal ions and pesticide residues in the soil. Additionally, its alkaline nature aids in reducing soil acidity.
Biochar as fuel
Fuel: Owing to its excellent combustion properties, biochar finds extensive application as a fuel in factories. Moreover, the delightful flavor makes biomass charcoal a preferred choice for hookah and BBQ charcoal.
Biochar animal feed
Biochar animal feed: Biochar feed made by Adding biochar to livestock feed can  improve ruminants gut health by working on the digestive system, while removing unwanted pathogens.
Wood vinegar/Tar/Biogas
Wood vinegar
Wood vinegar
  • Used as a food preservative to enhance the anti-mildew, antibacterial, and antioxidant properties of food.
  • Used as a deodorant and air freshener.
  • Used as plant nutrition regulates auxin, fertilizer, or insecticide.
  • Used as important materials in shipbuilding and paint industry.
  • Used to lay asphalt pavement.
  • Used to make waterproof coatings for buildings.
  • Usually recycled to heat the pyrolysis reactor.

Choose Biomass Pyrolysis Plant for Sale as You Like

We offer seven models of biomass pyrolysis equipment for sale, categorized into two types: batch machines and continuous machines. Please select the ideal machine based on your capacity requirements, factory space, operational method, investment costs, and other relevant factors.

BST-J series batch biomass pyrolysis plant

BST-J series – batch type

If you want to start a small-scale biomass pyrolysis project. You can consider the BST-J series. This series has a slightly smaller capacity, with a lower investment cost.

BST series continuous biochar machine

BST series – continuous type

If you intend to engage in large-scale biomass pyrolysis operations, you may consider the BST series machines. They operate continuously, allowing for a simultaneous feed-in and charcoal output. The high production capacity contributes to a higher cost compared to the BST-J series equipment.
