L'ACCHIAPPA CARBONIO

Carbonization of agricultural residues: Biochar Solution is a very smart solution for Carbon sequestration in the soil. The Project is financed by the measure 16.1 of the 2014-2020, Rural Development Plan of the Emilia Romagna Region.

IN WHAT IT CONSISTS

Pyrolysis is a thermochemical carbonization process that transforms agricultural waste into Biochar, a charcoal that sequesters and fixes carbon, becoming an excellent soil improver capable of reducing water and fertilizer requirements.

L'ACCHIAPPACARBONIO

In addition to the environmental and economic aspects, the Biochar production process makes it possible to obtain a gas (the syngas) with a high calorific value capable of supplying energy to small and medium-sized farms.

WHAT IS THE BIOCHAR

dati-cifre

The name biochar refers to a "coal" resulting from biomass thermal depolymerization processes. Thanks to its peculiar properties, it can be used to protect the environment and combat climate change . The biochar obtained from the controlled ...
