Market research carried out by Itt in Canada has shown a worldwide demand for particularly pure biochar as a main component for pharmaceuticals.
The requirements for the production of pharmaceuticals are very strict; one of which states that the raw material must be from organic origin.
The agricultural croplands must be prepared in a particular way with specially designed humus from the combined composting of our biochar with green material.
Humus is the organic component that forms in soil when dead plant matter is decayed by micro-organisms.
Biochar improves the water retention of soils and absorbs the nutrients during the composting process. Later on, these nutrients are slowly given back to the plants over a long period of time. We recently developed a formula to produce organic humus from biochar.
During carbonization, water is expelled from the biomass.
The chamber filter press which works as a precoat filter separates the particles from the process water generated during the production of biochar from biogenic raw materials such as Calliandra (and other fast-growing plants).
The eutrophic liquid can then be given back to the plantations as a fertilizer. The press cake formed is used in the carbonization process.
The polluted process water from the carbonization of waste is put through a more complex treatment process. First, this water also passes through a chamber filter press but then has to be further processed.
Afterwards, this water can be securely discharged into receiving waters. Needless to say, this procedure is carried out in compliance with the regional regulations and limits.
