Webinar: Economics of Transportable Biomass Conversion Facilities

Wednesday, September 27, 2017 at 1:00 pm EDT

What you’ll learn To characterize the potential economic viability of transportable biomass conversion facilities for producing biochar, briquettes, and torrefied wood, biomass supply chains were modeled and optimized for five sub-regions within the Pacific Northwest....

Low-tech Flame Carbonizers for Biochar Production: Theory and Applications

Tuesday, July 25, 2017 at 2:00 pm EDT

Biochar is made by applying heat to biomass in the absence of oxygen. Flame carbonization uses the flame itself to exclude oxygen. Flame carbonization methods can produce high quality biochar from low value biomass waste found in fields and forests without investing in...

Thermal Manure-to-Energy Systems for Farms: Technical and Environmental Feasibility

Friday, September 18, 2015 at 2:30 pm EDT - Presented by John Ignosh

The Farm Manure-to-Energy Initiative is regional, collaborative effort focused on demonstrating and evaluating the performance of thermal, poultry litter-fueled technologies capable of producing energy and facilitating the transport of excess nutrients out of high-density...

Agronomic and Environmental Uses of Biochar - Part 2

Friday, August 21, 2015 at 2:30 pm EDT

Biochar is a charcoal-like material generated during the pyrolysis of biomass. The high carbon (C) content of biochar and its recalcitrant nature has led to much interest in using biochar to sequester C from the atmosphere by incorporating it into soils. Additional...
