Manufacturing Process


Technology is based on a unique and patented furnace

BioChar Now uses custom-designed, patented furnaces with slow pyrolysis to manufacture its BioChar. The furnaces' unique multi-regional combustion airflow, negative pressure and recipe-driven computer controlled system allow each oven to independently produce consistent and high-quality BioChar.

Beetles kill trees or trees that are damaged by fire or other wood materials are shredded and loaded into the furnaces as a feed-stock.

Once the conversion is complete, the furnace is picked up by a tractor with a custom catcher, and transported to the crushing-filtration- and bag-filling workstation. Once the furnace tank is emptied, it moves to a filling station for a new load of shredded wood, before returning for further production.

A unique patent-pending, removable chimney converts smoke and chemical emissions into clean exhaust which exceeds the levels permitted by various state agencies throughout the United States.

The BioChar Now site is organized with furnaces grouped around a power pole and then replicated to support the number of furnaces desired
