Hur tillverkas biokol

The application of biochar (pyrolyzed biomass residues) in agriculture offers a multitude of benefits.

This includes:

  • an increase in the water storage capacity of agricultural soils,
  • an increase in fertiliser use efficiency,
  • a reduction of agricultural nitrate release to the groundwater,
  • a reduction of soil nitrous oxide emissions,
  • a long term sequestration of carbon in soils (CO2-sink),
  • and an increase of biogas production efficiency in biogas plants.
