You are a farmer and you have unused harvest waste or biomass?
You can use this biomass to produce your own biochar by pyrolyzing it in a barrel. If you want to learn about pyrolysis and how to use it, look at our Instruction Manual.
It is important to know that you will need space to produce organic coal. Since it will smoke, it is best if your location is far away from neighbors. Afterwards you can use the produced biochar for cooking. This will save you money because you don’t have to buy charcoal anymore. For facts about the production volume and savings click our Business Plan (Coming soon).
You still need a pyrolysis barrel for getting started? Look here at the different ways to get one.
Get your own barrel
You have the possibility to build the barrel on your own (construction plan) or to have it built by a metal worker.
You don’t want to have your own pyrolysis barrel or borrow a barrel?
Your unused biomass can still be turned into biochar. You can still produce biochar from your unused biomass. There is the possibility to go to a company which owns pyrolysis systems and simply drop off your biomass there. The company is going to produce the biochar for you. As their wage, they keep a part of the produced biochar. Otherwise you could just pay the facility a fixed salary, so that you are allowed to keep all of the product.
You produced more biochar than you need for yourself?
You can sell it at the market for a profit.
If that’s not enough for you, you can make a side business out of biochar production. You can become a barrel rental yourself or you can produce biochar for others/your community by setting up your own facility or joining existing ones.

At Last: If you just want to cook without expensive charcoal and get cheaper biochar instead,
you can buy it from a local RecyCoal- Expert. For a list of local sellers, click here.
