a). Investigating the effects of Sand Particles(density) on Biochar (initially produced from microwave- assisted torrefication) and enhancing segregation of the sand particles from the Biochar in a fluidized bed
b). Comparing Biochar Produced from various agricultural waste stream
c). Production of Biochar in the patented mobile pyrolysis AgriTherm unit.
As fossil fuels combustion overloads the atmosphere with excess Carbon contributing to global warming, there is growing concern to develop eco-friendly renewables or green alternatives towards addressing this global challenge.
Biochar, a carbon-rich solid produced from Biomass pyrolysis, a promising thermochemical conversion process in the absence of oxygen may offer a promising triple-benefit scenario for increased agricultural productivity, climate mitigation by reducing the emission of greenhouse gases and eventually on a long term scale fuel-energy security thereby fostering sustainable waste management and resource recovery developments.
