Pyrolysis (BioCharring) allows quickly recovering and transforming biomass into gas, oil and charcoal for a great number of uses, replacing classic fossil fuels.

Biocharcoal containing the minerals is also used as an amazing organic fertilizer.


Types of Pyrolysis
The two main methods of pyrolysis are "fast" pyrolysis and "slow" pyrolysis.
Fast pyrolysis yields 60% bio-oil, 20% biochar, and 20% syngas, and can be done in seconds. Slow pyrolysis can be optimized to produce substantially more biochar (~50%), but takes on the order of hours to complete.
For typical inputs, the energy required to run a "fast" pyrolyzer is approximately 15% of the energy that it outputs.
