Sustainable technologies for small-scale biochar production—a review
(Scientific Research Publishing Inc., 2015)
Charcoal has found enormous application in both agriculture (AKA biochar) and other sectors. Despite its potential benefits, small scale technologies relevant for its production remain a challenge. Technologies striking a ...
Designing and Performance Evaluation of Biochar Production in a Top-Lit Updraft Up-scaled Gasifier
(Scientific Research Publishing, 2015)
The Original Belonio Rice Husk Gasifier (OBRHG), initially of height of 0.6 m, diameter of 0.15 m and thickness of 0.025 m was tested for biochar production through air gasification of rice husk (RH) and the design was ...
Improved gasification of rice husks for optimized biochar production in a top lit updraft gasifier
(Scientific Research Publishing, 2014)
Biochar is a solid material obtained from the carbonization of biomass. If properly produced, it is useful for soil application to enrich plant values. Rice husk (RH) waste, an abundant agricultural by-product, was gasified ...
Gasification of biochar from empty fruit bunch in a fluidized bed reactor
(MDPI AG, 2010)
A biochar produced from empty fruit bunches (EFB) was gasified in a fluidized bed using air to determine gas yield, overall carbon conversion, gas quality, and composition as a function of temperature. The experiment was ...
