WasteX biomass pyrolysis plant to produce biochar

Our Technology

WasteX's biochar production machine (Carbonizer Model Y 2.2) is an autothermal continuous-type retort kiln developed to produce high-quality biochar with minimal use of energy and labor.

 

Gases produced during pyrolysis are used as a secondary heat source allowing for optimal heat production and clean emissions. With its compact and modular build, it allows for easy transport, assembly, and maintenance.

Product Highlights

high quality material.png

Made with SS 304, a high temperature resistant for long durability (5-7 years).​

Big hopper capacity (designed to contain feedstock for 2-4 hours).

​Separate combustion and pyrolysis chambers with control over residence time and pyrolysis temperature.

​High temperature sensors for operation monitoring and automation.

Energy efficient by utilizing pyrolysis gas for heat generation.

​Manual and Auto Mode option on feeding biomass for burner and pyrolysis chamber.

WasteX digital MRV (Android app)

Our clients are equipped with an Android app to digitally measure, report, and verify (dMRV) biochar production and application using WasteX's carbonizer for the purpose of carbon credits.

Features:

  • Biochar producer registration and full process recording for the purpose of carbon credits

  • Customized recommendations for optimum biochar application

  • Carbon impact and credits recording and calculation

Endorsement for Carbon Credits

Biochar Production Workflow 

Feedstock Preparation

Dry and shred the feedstock to achieve the feedstock requirements. This is essential to ensure optimal performance and maximum biochar yield.

01

Automatic Pyrolysis

The equipment automatically feeds the pyrolysis barrel with feedstock, controls the residence time, and disperses biochar into the biochar bin.

03

Heat Generation

The equipment is ignited to burn the biomass fuel. At 300°C, switch to auto-mode and the equipment will refuel the burner until the equipment reaches 500°C.

02

Biochar Collection

Collect biochar once the bin is full (every ~1 hour), and replace the bin with a new one. Let the biochar cool down for 24 hours.
