Charcoal Machine: How To Make Biochar From Sawdust Efficiently In

1 July, 2021
 

Did you know that having a charcoal making machine you may recycle sawdust and transform it into a item that has higher economic value? A fundamental sawdust biochar machine enables you to convert the biomass waste into sawdust biochar within just twenty or so minutes. What’s more, the conversion transpires in a sealed unit, making it safe, efficient and eco-friendly.

In order to learn how to make biochar from sawdust(hacer biocarbón a partir de aserrín) efficiently in Russia, as an example, Beston can supply you with your own business plan and machinery price estimate. Further down the road, the corporation can also provide you with fast equipment installation services and operator training.

Past Sawdust Charcoal Machine Projects

Beston has customers coming from all across the globe. They have successfully shipped and assembled sawdust charcoal machines in Spain, Ukraine, Russia and much more. Look for about successful cases around the manufacturer’s official website. Lots of the cases have photographs and videos showing Beston’s biochar machines 100 % operational mode. One of the primary factors why the producer is definitely the go-to choice for biomass waste to charcoal equipment for a lot of is really because their machinery employs advanced carbonization technology, unique structural engineering, modern carbonizing furnaces, high-grade components, effective emission cleaning technologies and a lot more. The manufacturer’s excellent(excelente  fabricante beston) after-sale services also helped to ensure they are a famous global brand.

Sawdust To Charcoal Making Process

The entire process of converting sawdust into charcoal involves four key stages: drying, carbonization, emission cleaning and discharging. The drying stage might be skipped if the raw materials have a moisture content below 20%. Right after the drying stage, sawdust is transferred in to the carbonization furnace using a belt conveyor system. Because the temperature within the oxygen-sealed reactor actually starts to rise, combustible gas and biochar are made.

Beston’s sawdust charcoal machines are fitted with residual gas emissions units, that incorporate dedusting systems to remove all sulfur from your combustible gas. The combustible gas is likewise sent via a condensing system to extract wood vinegar and wood tar. After passing from the purification systems, the resulting biogas is sent to refuel the carbonizing furnace.

After carbonization, the sawdust charcoal in the reactor is too hot to get directly collected. So, it really is sent via a discharging system which includes an integrated air conditioning to minimize the temperature in the biochar for safe collection.

Sawdust Charcoal Machine End Products

The very last products coming from a sawdust charcoal machine are bio charcoal, wood vinegar, wood tar, and biogas. The main uses of sawdust charcoal include cooking fuel, soil fertilizer, and chemical processing. To be used inside the chemical industry and metal refinery industry, bio charcoal is transformed into activated carbon. The wonderful thing about sawdust charcoal is it carries a quite high carbon content. This implies it comes with a high caloric value and produces little smoke during burning.

For all those wondering about the price of one other byproducts from your sawdust to biochar process, you may want to recognize that wood vinegar is certainly a good pest repellent. Wood vinegar can also be non-toxic, so you can use it in mosquito repellent spray for children.

Significant efforts around the globe are being made to create less waste and find new ways to innovate on renewable resources while lowering total carbon emission levels. Verde Resources, traditionally a mining company, is looking to shift gears on a new project that will focus on carbon sequestration and recycling empty fruit bunch. The new project from the business recently raised seed funding to expand the efforts.

Verde Resources recently announced new plans to collect empty fruit bunch and other organic waste, and recycle it into renewable resources. This process will be a part of a larger effort by the exploration and development stage company to reduce its carbon impact and produce valuable resources.

Earlier this year, the company announced the business acquisition of Biofraction technology, which uses a modified catalytic vacuum pyrolysis and a temperature-controlled thermochemical process to produce four natural renewable resources from wasted palm biomass and empty fruit bunch. These four resources are biochar, bio-oil, bio-syngas, and wood vinegar.

Following the organic waste and fruit bunch recycling process, both the wood vinegar and biochar become incredibly valuable resources when combined. In fact, combined, these materials create activated biochar, which, when added back into the ground, serve as a sustainable form of carbon sequestration.

Furthermore, activated biochar has proven to be incredibly beneficial to farmland soil. The addition of activated biochar into farmland soil helps to reduce erosion, improve pH, benefit water retention, and even create larger crop yields.

Verde Resources raised $3.1 million in seed funding to expand the scope of its organic recycling efforts. The exploration stage company will be using this funding to open a business office in Seattle and a processing facility in Missouri to recycle the empty fruit bunch and organic waste.

While the one processing facility opened by Verde Resources tomorrow will not make a significant difference, organic waste and fruit recycling into wood vinegar and biochar at scale could.

Some environmental experts believe that adding activated biochar to just 10% of global farmlands could sequester up to 29 billion tons of carbon emissions. Additionally, the company could potentially provide a percentage of its biochar to agricultural business owners and create a more environmentally sustainable farming industry.

With the US government making bold goals for net-zero emissions in the near future, carbon sequestration and revitalizing American farmlands to produce more sustainable practices will have to play a major part in those efforts. The US federal government has debated the idea of providing carbon credits or subsidies to farmers who sequester carbon, and the integration of activated biochar could be a major way for them to do that.

When commenting on the new organic recycling project that Verde Resources is working on, president of the company, Balakrishnan Muthu, said, “While we are not claiming to provide a one-size-fits-all solution, we have successfully converted palm waste into by-products of high value that would meet that objective. We will soon provide our input to the USDA, and we are very convinced that Verde would be able to create new downstream American manufacturing jobs with our initiative.”

How Finland's Puro.earth plans to scale up carbon removal to help the world reach net zero …

1 July, 2021
 

By September last year, the number of commitments to reach net zero emissions from local governments and businesses had roughly doubled, according to the UN.

This increase was driven in part by the Paris agreement, an international treaty on climate change adopted by 196 parties in 2015 to limit global warming to well below 2 degrees Celsius.

This has in turn led to unprecedented interest in carbon removal as a strategy to reduce the concentration of CO2 to complement ambitious emission reduction goals. It is this interest that Antti Vihavainen, co-founder of Puro.earth, the world’s first voluntary marketplace for verified CO2 removals, hopes will create a huge voluntary market for carbon removal credits to fund whole industries that lock away more CO2 than they emit.

Speaking about the initial idea for the business, Vihavainen recalls “It had been clear for a long time that global emission reduction efforts are not sufficient to curb the rise of CO2 concentration, and the situation was worsening year upon year.”

“We urgently need to start removing vast quantities of carbon dioxide from the atmosphere, and lock it away for the long-term, in order to stand a chance of keeping within 1.5 degrees of global warming.”

Vihavainen had observed that emerging industries such as biochar production, production of wooden building elements, and the production of carbonated building elements, were sequestering significant amounts of carbon for at least 50 years – in some cases, centuries. Yet, these operations were under-utilised and therefore underdeveloped.

A workable model to scale up these businesses so that they could increase production of carbon net negative materials, and therefore remove carbon from the atmosphere, was missing.

Vihavainen pitched the idea to leading Nordic energy company Fortum, who brought on board the expertise of the then Innovation Manager, Marianne Tikkanen, and the competence of the trading desk to help devise a business model that would work.

The internal startup worked to create a coalition of 22 innovative organisations with experts from six countries, to device the governance, methodologies and rules for a B2B marketplace and most importantly, to create the very first carbon removal credit, the CORC (CO2 Removal Certificate).
The coalition also helped develop a rigorous verification process to ensure all carbon removal suppliers were legitimate, and deliver genuinely carbon net-negative benefits. Following a pilot phase during which the 22 companies tested the platform, the very first carbon credit transactions were made on Puro.earth in May 2019.

Since then, the company has attracted the attention of several global customers pursuing net zero and climate change strategies, among them reinsurance company Swiss Re and Canadian e-commerce company Shopify, both of which have publicly announced carbon removal via Puro.earth as a key part of their climate change and net zero strategies.

Joining them as a customer earlier this year was Microsoft, which one year ago announced its climate ‘moonshot’: an ambition to become carbon negative by 2030, and to remove from the environment all the carbon that Microsoft has emitted since the company was founded in 1975 by 2050.

Puro.earth will provide a portfolio of verified carbon dioxide removal tonnage to Microsoft from three suppliers on its platform, Carbofex, ECHO2 and Carbon Cycle, which remove carbon dioxide from the atmosphere through production of biochar, allowing carbon to be stored in soil for hundreds of years, while also helping to restore degraded soils and improving agricultural productivity.

According to Vihavainen, “Biochar is a methodology that offers huge potential for carbon removal, not least because it has so many commercial uses at potentially industrial volumes – for example, you might use it as a greenhouse additive, in soil regeneration or in wastewater treatment, all the while locking away carbon in a solid and stable form for potentially thousands of years. Our customers really recognise the value of this methodology in particular, and we’ve seen demand for biochar CORCs skyrocket in the past year.”

But there are many other solutions, dozens have already contacted Puro.earth to apply to the marketplace. Even though there is uncertainty with the more innovative solutions, if they are based on science-based principles like measured quantification (and not modelling), rigorous third party verification practices based on credible data trails, and laboratory and field testing of the permanence of carbon sequestration, the risks can be managed.

By the beginning of May 2021, Puro.earth has facilitated carbon removals trade with credits representing 66,000 tonnes of CO2 removals sold at a weighted average price of €47.

One of the key issues facing the carbon removal market is a constrained supply: there aren’t currently enough trusted, verified suppliers to meet the demand for carbon removal credits. “Despite the severe economic impacts of the pandemic, a huge number of companies have recently made science-based commitments to reach net zero emissions by 2030 and they will need carbon removal”, comments Vihavainen.

Puro.earth is addressing this issue by allowing buyers to make multi-year pre-purchase agreements with suppliers. These are future purchase contracts that enable a corporate to secure a supply of robustly verified negative emissions. “In our experience, suppliers with ongoing production can grow the volume of carbon removals by an average of 30% per year,” notes Vihavainen, “and the price of their negative emissions decreases by approximately 12% per year. It’s necessary that companies create a long-term portfolio of carbon removals to reach carbon net zero.”

“As seen in the global tech industry, demand drives innovation, and there are many brilliant businesses in our space working hard to meet anticipated demand. All of this is encouraging, but as the world is starting to realise, we are in a hurry to control the climate crisis. While the motors are gearing up, this is a nascent industry and much more volume is needed.”

Looking ahead, Puro.earth is planning to continue adding more verified methodologies as they emerge. The company recently launched the first-of-its-kind Geologically Stored Carbon methodology, allowing suppliers that capture and store carbon as a direct injection of CO2 into deep geological formations, as well as into oil and gas reservoirs, to access the marketplace if they pass the verification process. Its ambition is to create $300bn global market for carbon removal to address global warming by removing 10 gigatons of CO2 a year by 2050.

Importantly, for Puro.earth scaling up the industry has to be a joint effort. “No one can remove 10 gigatons alone, so our goal is to build an ecosystem with the help of corporations and investors to speed things up. We need to create the network effects needed to grow the entire market. We need advanced commitments for CORCs that will allow carbon removal operations to start new facilities and grow existing ones. We are running out of time, so we have to act now.”

Efficient toluene adsorption/desorption on biochar derived from in situ acid-treated sugarcane …

1 July, 2021
 

Carbon-based materials with great adsorption performance are of importance to meet the needs of industrial gas adsorption. Having massive agricultural wastes of sugarcane bagasse, China could use this waste into wealth. However, the comprehensive utilization of sugarcane bagasse as precursor for biochar that can be used as adsorbent has not been extensively explored. In this study, a series of in situ sulfuric acid–modified biochar was prepared by hydrothermal carbonization process. The prepared biochar (SBAC-7) has a combination of two main advantages that are high microporosity (micropore surface area = 1106 m2/g) and being rich in S-containing functional groups on the surface. In particular, SBAC-7 showed an excellent adsorption capacity of toluene (771.1 mg/g) at 30 °C, which is nearly 3 times as high as that of the commercial activated carbons. Meanwhile, it showed great stability and cyclic regeneration performance with five toluene adsorption-desorption test cycles. This study provides a high-performance biochar for the adsorption-desorption cycle in practical engineering applications, and would contribute to the sustainable “sugarcane production–bagasse utilization” circular economy.

Electron transfer mechanism of peroxydisulfate activation by sewage sludge-derived biochar for …

1 July, 2021
 

There is an urgent need for the development of efficient and economical persulfate activators in persulfate-based advanced oxidation processes for wastewater treatment. Accordingly, in this work, sewage sludge from a wastewater treatment plant was carbonized at different pyrolysis temperatures in the range of 400–800 °C via a one-pot synthesis method, which was used to activate peroxydisulfate (PDS) for the degradation of sulfamethoxazole (SMX). Among the samples, biochar pyrolyzed at 800 °C (BC800) showed the best catalytic performance for the removal of SMX (85.3% in 60 min reaction). In the initial pH range of 5.0–11.0, PDS could be activated (0.75 g L−1) efficiently by BC800 for the degradation of SMX. Combined with electron paramagnetic resonance (EPR) spectroscopy, quenching experiment, steady-state kinetics experiment and electrochemical results, the degradation of SMX in the BC800/PDS system was proposed to be a degradation mechanism involving electron transfer as the main pathway. Through the analysis of the intermediates, the possible SMX degradation pathways were predicted. This study provides new insights into the mechanism for the sewage sludge-derived biochar activation of peroxydisulfate and its potential applications for the treatment of SMX wastewater.

"Can strawberries and tomatoes grow on non-renewable feedstock materials?"

1 July, 2021
 

Can strawberries and tomatoes be cultivated without non-renewable feedstock materials such as peat and mineral wool? How can residual materials such as shrimp shells, CO2 from flue gasses, spent growing media, green waste, and plant fibers be upcycled and contribute to sustainable soilless horticulture?

The Interreg 2 Seas project Horti-BlueC aims at solving bottlenecks and proposing new solutions for more sustainable growing media in horticulture and for upcycling byproducts from current practices. The ambition is to facilitate the adoption of a new greenhouse concept, with a reduction in fossil fuel use and CO2 emissions, a reduced application of chemical plant protection products and fertilizers, and the replacement of virgin CO2.

During this event, the final results of the Horti-BlueC project will be disseminated.

Project researchers will present their findings on new solutions for sustainable growing media:

Firstly, Ewan Gage will talk about Biochar and chitin amendments for tomato substrates in commercial production: Evaluation of the potential to enhance growing media sustainability. Then, Julie Moelants will talk about successful organic growing media cultivated in a commercial tomato growing system. Thirdly, Xiangming Xu will talk about extending the lifetime of coir substrate in strawberry production through coir reuse and amendment with biochar. Fourthly, Edward Collins will talk about amending butterhead lettuce and Brioso tomato with recycled shellfish waste to improve yield and antioxidant activity. 

Afterward, representatives from observer partners VLACO, ECN, WUR, and RHP will take part in a panel discussion on the adoption of sustainable growing media by the sector in the project area.

Finally, the Horti-BlueC immersive Virtual Reality experience will also be showcased.

As the Open Event is integrated into the GrowingMedia2021 Symposium, more detailed information on the presented research can be found on the Symposium website. Please note that registration for the Horti-BlueC Open Event is automatically included in the registration for the GrowingMedia2021 Symposium.

Verde Resources With An Unconventional Approach To Carbon Sequestration

1 July, 2021
 

SEATTLE, July 1, 2021 /PRNewswire/ — Verde Resources Inc. (OTCQB: VRDR) According to data from the Malaysian Palm Oil Board, 20.6 million tons of empty fruit bunch (EFB) was discarded by the palm oil mills of Malaysia in 2019. In Indonesia, the estimate was higher, at 59.5 million tons of discarded EFB. Most often, the waste is left to decay.

Verde Resources intends to recycle the organic waste into renewable resources. The Company recently raised $3.1 million seed funding, a significant commitment towards the green initiative. The initiative involves establishing a business office in Seattle, and a processing facility in Missouri. Verde Resources understands the importance of converting palm biomass as part of a progressive approach towards carbon sequestration and reducing greenhouse gases.

Earlier this year, Verde Resources announced the acquisition of BioFraction technology. This technology involves an advanced proprietary, modified catalytic vacuum pyrolysis, and temperature controlled thermochemical process which converts palm waste into four renewable byproducts; biochar, bio-oil, bio-syngas and wood vinegar.

When wood vinegar is applied to biochar, it activates the biochar, and when reintroduced back into the earth, the biochar becomes a sustainable form of carbon sequestration and an economical way to improve cropland. Research conducted with activated biochar during Verde Resources’ pilot project in Borneo, displayed impressive results, successfully converting an acre of wasteland into an eggplant producing farm. Biochar is regarded as a resourceful soil amendment that improves soil pH, reduces erosion, improves water retention, provides a host for microbial activity and improves crop size. Environmental experts such as Mark Hertsgaard, mentions in an article published at the Yale School of The Environment, advocates that adding biochar to 10% of global croplands could sequester the equivalent of 29 billion tons of CO2.

The Paris Agreement, a global framework climate initiative, has the main objective of addressing global warming. The primary solution mentioned in the agreement is carbon capture and storage, which is a fundamental strategy for meeting CO2 emission reduction targets. Aligning with the agreement is an executive order signed by President Biden, which specifically lays out action for federal agencies to mitigate climate change. The order includes direction for USDA to collect input from stakeholders with strategies that address climate-smart agriculture and forestry. Opportunities to create large scale carbon banks in agriculture which reduce greenhouse gas emissions will be an integral part of the Biden administration’s infrastructure and climate plan. Both plans focus on green energy and decarbonization. 

According to The Washington Times, U.S Secretary of Agriculture Tom Vilsack shares the Biden administrations vision of net-zero agriculture, which can partly be achieved by providing markets such as subsidies and carbon credits that reward farmers for sequestering carbon. Speaking at Agri-Pulses annual Ag & Food Policy Summit, Vilsack expressed, "Its a way of basically providing financial assistance to farmers so that they incorporate into their operations climate-smart agricultural practices, which will not only provide farm income, but it will preserve soil, provide healthier soil and it will be an opportunity to improve the quality of water." USDA seeks to gather as many ideas and guidance as it can from the public.

"While we are not claiming to provide a one-size-fits-all solution, we have successfully converted palm waste into by-products of high value that would meet that objective. We will soon provide our input to the USDA, and we are very convinced that Verde would be able to create new downstream American manufacturing jobs with our initiative." said Balakrishnan Muthu, president of Verde Resources.

Granted, it may only be a partial solution to a complex issue, the simple concept of capturing carbon as a solid form and recycling it back into the earth will help mitigate climate change. With progressive approaches of adding biochar across U.S farmland, which both addresses global warming while simultaneously bolstering crops, Verde Resources is paving the way, going green and beyond, offering alternative solutions to the worlds climate issues.

Carbon-based materials with great adsorption performance are of importance to meet the needs of industrial gas adsorption. Having massive agricultural wastes of sugarcane bagasse, China could use this waste into wealth. However, the comprehensive utilization of sugarcane bagasse as precursor for biochar that can be used as adsorbent has not been extensively explored. In this study, a series of in situ sulfuric acid-modified biochar was prepared by hydrothermal carbonization process. The prepared biochar (SBAC-7) has a combination of two main advantages that are high microporosity (micropore surface area = 1106 m2/g) and being rich in S-containing functional groups on the surface. In particular, SBAC-7 showed an excellent adsorption capacity of toluene (771.1 mg/g) at 30 °C, which is nearly 3 times as high as that of the commercial activated carbons. Meanwhile, it showed great stability and cyclic regeneration performance with five toluene adsorption-desorption test cycles. This study provides a high-performance biochar for the adsorption-desorption cycle in practical engineering applications, and would contribute to the sustainable “sugarcane production-bagasse utilization” circular economy.

Verde Resources, Inc. (VRDR) Stock Rises After Announcing Novel Approach to Organic Waste …

1 July, 2021
 

What is going on with VRDR?

Verde Resources, Inc. (VRDR) stock roes today after the company announced its plan to recycle organic waste, most notably palm oil, into renewable resources. The company recently raised $3.1 million seed funding towards the green initiative. Shares of VRDR increased 8.57% to $0.076 as of Thursday at 12:01pm.

What does this mean for Verde Resources?

Verde’s method of carbon sequestration will involve its BioFraction technology, which it purchased earlier this year. The technology involves a thermochemical process which converts palm waste into four renewable byproducts; biochar, bio-oil, bio-syngas and wood vinegar. When wood vinegar is applied to biochar, it activates the biochar, and when reintroduced back into the earth, the biochar becomes a sustainable form of carbon sequestration and an economical way to improve cropland.

Inhibiting denitrification by biochar was the main reason for reducing N loss.

Biochar promoted composting process by accelerating the microbial succession.

This study evaluated the impact of biochar addition on nitrogen (N) loss and the process period during distilled grain waste (DGW) composting. Results from the five treatments (0, 5, 10, 15, and 20% biochar addition) indicated that 10% biochar addition (DB10) was optimal, resulting in the lowest N loss, 25.69% vs. 40.01% in the control treatment. Moreover, the DGW composting period was shortened by approximately 14 days by biochar addition. The composition of the microbial community was not significantly altered with biochar addition in each phase, however, it did accelerate the microbial succession during DGW composting. N metabolism pathway prediction revealed that biochar addition enhanced nitrification and inhibited denitrification, and the latter phenomenon was the main reason for reducing N loss during DGW composting. Based on the above results, a potential mechanism model for biochar addition to reduce N loss during the DGW composting process was established.

The benefit of biochar as a soil fertility enhancer is well known and are broadly investigated. Equally, many tropical and sub-tropical countries utilize wastewater for irrigation in urban agriculture. To assess the related health risks, we determined pathogen and heavy metal fate associated with biochar application and wastewater irrigation in the urban agriculture of Northern Ghana. Rice husk biochar (20 t ha-1 ), NPK 15:15:15 fertilizer (212.5 kg ha-1 ), and their combinations were evaluated in a field-based experiment. Untreated wastewater and tap water served as irrigation water, and Amaranthus cruentus used as a test crop, grown in wet (WS) and dry (DS) cropping seasons. Irrigation water, soil and vegetables were analyzed for heavy metals, E. coli, faecal coliform, helminth egg and Salmonella spp. Unlike the pathogens, analyzed heavy metals from irrigation water and soil were below FAO/WHO permissible standard for agricultural activities. Wastewater irrigation caused an E. coli concentration between 0.5 – 0.6 (WS) and 0.7 – 0.8 (DS) log10 CFU gFW -1 on vegetables and 1.7 – 2.1 (WS) and 0.6 – 1.0 (DS) log10 CFU gDW -1 in soil. An average log10 CFU gFW -1 of 6.19 and 3.44 faecal coliform were found on vegetables, while in soil, 4.26 and 4.58 log10 CFU gDW -1 were observed in WS and DS respectively. Helminth eggs population were high in wastewater and were transferred to the crops and soil. Biochar did not affect bacteria contamination. Pathogen contaminations on vegetable and in soil were directly linked to the irrigation water with minimal or no difference observed from biochar application. This article is protected by copyright.

Effects of biochar application on crop productivity, soil carbon sequestration, and global warming …

2 July, 2021
 

Biochar plus chemical fertilizer (BF) improved crop yield more than biochar alone (B).

B and BF reduced global warming potential by 27.1 % and 14.3 %, respectively.

Effect sizes of B and BF on crop yield coupled with these on soil organic carbon.

Effect sizes of B & BF on crop yield were controlled by biochar C:N ratio & soil pH.

Biochar plus chemical fertilizer (BF) improved crop yield more than biochar alone (B).

B and BF reduced global warming potential by 27.1 % and 14.3 %, respectively.

Effect sizes of B and BF on crop yield coupled with these on soil organic carbon.

Effect sizes of B & BF on crop yield were controlled by biochar C:N ratio & soil pH.

Biochar application has been widely recommended as a potential solution to tackle the challenges of food security and climate change in agroecosystems, but the effect sizes of biochar application on crop yield, soil carbon sequestration, and global warming potential (GWP) shows great uncertainties. To explore the effect variation of biochar application alone (B) and biochar combined with chemical fertilizers (BF) on crop yield, soil organic carbon (SOC), and GWP, this study reviewed updated datasets with 455, 131, and 95 independent experiments globally to identify the key factors influencing the responses of crop yield, SOC, and GWP to B and BF, respectively. Overall, the effect sizes were different between B and BF in both improving crop yield (15.1 % and 48.4 %, respectively) and decreasing GWP (27.1 % and 14.3 %, respectively), whereas there were almost no differences in terms of increasing SOC (32.9 % and 34.8 %, respectively). In addition, the effect sizes of B and BF on crop yield were coupled with these on SOC. Increased biochar carbon to nitrogen ratio (C:N ratio) and soil pH decreased the impact of B and BF on crop yield, while increased SOC promoted the impact of BF on crop yield. The effect size on GWP increased with biochar pH increasing but soil pH decreasing under B and BF. The wetness index, soil properties (SOC, pH, and clay), and biochar properties (type, pH, C:N ratio, and application rate) jointly explained 70 %–79 %, 90 %–93 %, and 70 %–97 % of the effect variations in crop yield, SOC, and GWP, respectively. The biochar C:N ratio and soil pH were the most important factors determining the effect size of biochar application on crop yield, SOC, and GWP. Taken together, biochar application is a tripartite win-win solution for improving crop yield, increasing SOC, and decreasing GWP mainly depending on biochar properties and soil pH.

BIOCHAR – Climate saving soils – WUR

2 July, 2021
 

Biochar is a byproduct of the pyrolysis. It is a stable form of carbon which supposedly has a large number of positive characteristics for the soil. The use of biochar can result in the achievement of the objective to store carbon long-term in the soil and the objective to maintain or even improve the soil fertility. However, the support for these claims are often weak. Therefore, this project examines the effect of biochar made from prunings, on crop production and soil quality.

The project is part of an Interreg project, more information is available at the Interreg website.

To explore the potential of nature to improve the quality of life.

Pyrolysis Treatment Enables Safe Application of Sewage Sludge in Horticulture – Tracking …

3 July, 2021
 

Biochar production via pyrolysis is a promising option to be used for sewage sludge treatment. Here we investigated the uptake of potentially toxic elements (PTEs) from sewage sludge and its biochar (450°C) into cherry tomato plants and its fruits in pot experiments (2, 5 and 10%) to assess the health risks associated with fruit consumption. We further studied the ability of the PTE-rich amendments to immobilize PTEs already present in soil through spiking of soil (pH 7.4) with Cd, Cu and Zn. Our findings suggest that tomato consumption is not a human health risk when grown in soil amended with sewage sludge and its biochar; in most treatments PTE uptake into fruits was similar to the control. Vegetative plant growth was highest in sewage sludge-amended soils. Yet 5 and 10% biochar-amended soils significantly increased tomato fruit yield compared to untreated sewage sludge application (400–500% higher than 10% sewage sludge-amended soil) and significantly decreased fruit uptake of Cu and Zn. Importantly, biochar also significantly immobilized PTEs present in contaminated (spiked) soil. As expected, available (DTPA-extractable) PTE contents were typically lower in biochar-amended soil and sequential extraction indicated that the PTEs were predominantly bound in more recalcitrant soil fractions (organic matter associated and Fe-Mn oxides-bound). We conclude that pyrolysis can be a key technology for sewage sludge treatment and subsequent use of the biochar in urban, and potentially even contaminated, horticultural sites.

Dick Gallen: Save the Winona Farm

3 July, 2021
 

The City of Winona may be the first in Minnesota. not adjacent to a power plant, that for the next two years will not be wasting its waste wood. Since 1993, this natural resource has been officially written off as “waste wood,” just $5 for a yearly burn permit.

Few knew that June 4, for the first time ever, bids were let to operate Winona’s Compost Site. At the June 21 City Council Meeting, the decision was finalized.

Today’s Tree Service of La Crosse had the low bid at $48,000. At Winona’s Compost Site, adjoining the sewage plant, they will chip/grind Winona’s waste wood, then truck it to power plants at LaCrosse.

Minnesota Wood Recyclers $55,000. 

Winona Farm at $49,500 offered to continue being open every day from dawn until dark, as it has been since 1990, with no charge for residential deposits of yard and wood waste and no charge for returning home with hand-loaded manurized compost and wood chips. All of Winona’s “waste wood” would’ve been turned into biochar, lumber and firewood and these 175 acres would’ve moved toward becoming Winona’s Farm. https://www.nrri.umn.edu/natural-resources-research-institute/news/biochar

Essential for The Winona Farm’s Community Service Compost Site’s survival during these next two years is a non profit to which this farm can be donated. For most, being a board member of a compost site rates only one step above being a board member of a sewage site.

Hopefully a few of you have more vision for this farm than it becoming another wealthy family estate, in that it is protected from development by the Minnesota Land Trust.

Biochar addition reduces nitrogen loss and accelerates composting process by affecting the core …

3 July, 2021
 

mpact of biochar addition on performance of DGW composting process was studied.

Reduced nitrogen loss and accelerated composting process were achieved.

Adding 10% biochar allowed the lowest N loss of 25.69% vs 40.01% in control.

Inhibiting denitrification by biochar was the main reason for reducing N loss.

Biochar promoted composting process by accelerating the microbial succession.

Inhibiting denitrification by biochar was the main reason for reducing N loss.

Biochar promoted composting process by accelerating the microbial succession.

This study evaluated the impact of biochar addition on nitrogen (N) loss and the process period during distilled grain waste (DGW) composting. Results from the five treatments (0, 5, 10, 15, and 20% biochar addition) indicated that 10% biochar addition (DB10) was optimal, resulting in the lowest N loss, 25.69% vs. 40.01% in the control treatment. Moreover, the DGW composting period was shortened by approximately 14 days by biochar addition. The composition of the microbial community was not significantly altered with biochar addition in each phase, however, it did accelerate the microbial succession during DGW composting. N metabolism pathway prediction revealed that biochar addition enhanced nitrification and inhibited denitrification, and the latter phenomenon was the main reason for reducing N loss during DGW composting. Based on the above results, a potential mechanism model for biochar addition to reduce N loss during the DGW composting process was established.

Optimization of biochar quality and yield from tropical timber industry wastes – ScienceDirect

3 July, 2021
 

Cameroon sawmill residue show a remarkable C content, worth exploitation as biochar.

Good quality biochar, approaching coal, can be produced even at 500 °C.

The heating rate, between 0.1 and 70°/min, does not affect biochar yield.

Optimal conditions result in short (<1h) production time per batch.

Pyrolysis in CO2 flow produces the best biochar yield and quality.

The heating rate, between 0.1 and 70°/min, does not affect biochar yield.

Optimal conditions result in short (<1h) production time per batch.

Pyrolysis in CO2 flow produces the best biochar yield and quality.

The conversion of timber industry waste to biochar was investigated, based on residues from local tropical hardwoods in Cameroon. Closed and flow reactors, loaded with few grams of the sample and fluxed with different inert gases, were used with the aim of converting these wood residues to a safe and efficient solid fuel that can be exploited by the local community for cooking purposes. The pyrolysis temperature had the highest impact on the process up to approximately 700 °C as biochar yields decreased from 87 to 23.5% while increasing the temperature. A significant concentration of carbon required temperatures greater than 500 °C for the biochar to become a good solid fuel, approaching the heating value of coal. The role of heating rate appeared marginal even in a broad range: 0.1 to 70 °C/min. The dwell time (in the range 0.5 to 5 h) at maximum temperature revealed to be of little influence on the charring which occurred mostly during the first few minutes of the isothermal phase. Thus, actual production time can be <1 h/batch (up to 500 °C at 10 °C/min). Stepwise heating revealed a sequence of devolatilization reactions following their activation energies. Use of CO2 as inert gas increased the char yield. The inert gas flow rate had two contrasting effects on the biochar yield, in relation to volatile components residence time and the biomass temperature. The reactivity of biochar in combustion suggests a trade-off between heating content and reactivity. Charring in a closed, pressurized reactor produced biochar of low value as fuel, with tars absorbed in the porous solid residue.

Pollutants removal from wastewater using LDH-BC composite are reviewed.

Properties of LDH-BC composite endow its application as adsorbent and catalyst.

Strategies for enhancing the properties of LDH-BC composite are discussed.

Critical comments and perspectives for future research and application are proposed.

In recent years, layered double hydroxide-biochar (LDH-BC) composites as adsorbents and catalysts for contaminants removal (inorganic anions, heavy metals, and organics) have received increasing attention and became a new research point. It is because of the good chemical stability, abundant surface functional groups, excellent anion exchange ability, and good electronic properties of LDH-BC composites. Hence, we offer an overall review on the developments and processes in the synthesis of LDH-BC composites as adsorbents and catalysts. Special attention is devoted to the strategies for enhancing the properties of LDH-BC composites, including (1) magnetic treatment, (2) acid treatment, (3) alkali treatment, (4) controlling metal ion ratios, (5) LDHs intercalation, and (6) calcination. In addition, further studies are called for LDH-BC composites and potential areas for future application of LDH-BC composites are also proposed.


Evaluation and selection of biochars and hydrochars derived from agricultural wastes for the use …

Banana rachis is a novel raw material to produce biochars at mild conditions.

Banana rachis biochar (BW-BC) possesses remarkable SBET=859 m2/g (at 600 °C, 2 h, N2 flux).

The overall suitability of BW-BC was evaluated by a holistic approach, concerning adsorption and energy storage performance.

Banana rachis is a novel raw material to produce biochars at mild conditions.

Banana rachis biochar (BW-BC) possesses remarkable SBET=859 m2/g (at 600 °C, 2 h, N2 flux).

The overall suitability of BW-BC was evaluated by a holistic approach, concerning adsorption and energy storage performance.

The utilization of unconventional agricultural wastes to obtain new porous carbonaceous materials, at mild pyrolysis temperatures and without complex procedures, for either water treatment and energy storage applications is important from the economic and environmental perspective. In this study, biochars and hydrochars were prepared from banana rachis, cocoa pod husks, and rice husks at 600 °C-2h, under nitrogen flux. The prepared materials were characterized to better understand how their morphological, textural, physical-chemical and/or structural properties correlate with their methylene blue (MB) adsorption capacities. The material with the best properties (mainly SBET>800 m2/g) and MB adsorption capacity was a novel biochar prepared from banana rachis (BW-BC). This novel material was selected for additional kinetics and equilibrium adsorption tests for lead (Pb) along with its energy storage capacity. In equilibrium test, the novel biochar reached a maximum adsorption capacity for methylene blue of 243.4 mg/g and the highest adsorption capacity for Pb(II) of 179.7 mg/g. In the kinetic adsorption test, the equilibrium adsorption value for methylene blue was 150.4 mg/g and that for Pb(II) was 159.6 mg/g. Most importantly, the performance of the BW-BC material for energy storage in supercapacitors surpassed that of the commercial activated carbon YP50F in neutral and acidic electrolytes, reaching specific energy values of 6.66 and 8.52 Wh/kg in acidic and basic electrolytes, respectively. Among the evaluated hydrochar and biochars derived of agrowastes, the biochar prepared from banana rachis showed the best properties, being potentially useful as adsorbent or as an electrode material for energy storage.

"Carbon is the most valuable resource in our society"

4 July, 2021
 

As we reach the end of the third week of our carbon revolution series, here are ten standout quotes from people pioneering ways of removing the element from the sky and putting it to use on Earth.

“Carbon is very special”

Carbon is the most important and versatile element on Earth, according to carbon nanomaterials professor Andrei Khlobystov. “Carbon is very special,” Khlobystov told Dezeen. “All life on Earth is based on carbon.”

Khlobystov believes that science is well on its way to developing viable ways of removing carbon from the atmosphere and turning it into useful products.

“If you take carbon dioxide, remove oxygen atoms and add some hydrogen atoms, we can make liquid fuels that we can use to drive cars,” he said.

“You can also turn it into polymers,” he said. “You can make chemicals. We can make ethanol out of carbon dioxide and then use it to make vodka, for example.”

“Earth has no carbon emissions”

Ancient construction techniques can offer better ways of building zero-carbon housing than high-tech solutions, according to Pakistani architect Yasmeen Lari, who has used earth, bamboo and lime to construct thousands of dwellings.

“There are lots of ancient wisdoms and techniques that have been used over the years but I can’t imagine most so-called starchitects would even look at them,” Lari told Dezeen.

“I can’t say that I’ve done any kind of evaluation but I do know that earth has no carbon emissions,” she added. “It’s locally sourced, it’s biodegradable, it can be reused 100 times.”

“Carbon is not our enemy. It’s a friend”

Carbon has been unfairly demonised for its role in climate change, said sustainable design guru William McDonough. “Carbon is not our enemy,” he said. “It’s a friend. It’s an innocent element in all this.”

Preventing climate change is “a design project needing lots of attention,” he added. “It’s very exciting to look at how many ways we can do this, but it’s daunting”.

“Carbon can be an ally in a regenerative future”

Carbon is an incredible resource that can be sequestered into the buildings and objects that surround us, argued designer Sebastian Cox in an opinion column.

“Carbon can be an ally in a regenerative future,” he wrote. “Carbon from photosynthesis, not from fossils, should as much as possible constitute the fabric of the things we use and buy.”

“We’re helping plan the decarbonisation of whole industries”

Interest in construction materials made from captured carbon has rocketed over the past couple of years according to Sophia Hamblin Wang, chief operating officer of Mineral Carbonation International.

“Holy moly,” said Hamblin Wang, whose company makes bricks and other materials from CO2 captured in factory chimneys. “It’s been tumultuous in the past two years.”

“We’re working with some of the largest companies in the world on charting their path to zero carbon. We’re helping them plan the decarbonisation of whole industries and whole facilities.”

“Carbon is the most valuable resource in our society”

Swiss company Climeworks builds direct air capture machines that suck CO2 from the atmosphere so it can be either stored underground or put to use.

“We capture CO2 from the atmosphere,” said Christoph Beuttler, Climeworks’ head of climate policy. “We’re mining the sky because there’s too much carbon in it. And it’s a sustainable resource.”

“Carbon is the most valuable resource in our society,” Beuttler added. “We have built our society on carbon. The problem is that it’s coming out of the ground and it adds additional carbon to the atmosphere.”

“One day we will eat food made from carbon dioxide”

Designer Teresa van Dongen has created a library of materials that capture carbon dioxide. These include potential foods made from CO2 including spirulina, which is a carbon-guzzling algae, and methane-consuming microbial proteins.

“I absolutely do think that one day we will eat food that is produced from carbon dioxide,” said van Dongen. “It’s only a matter of time and government legislation.”

“It starts with the realization that all plant-based foods that we eat have absorbed CO2 in order for the plant to grow.”

“We need a financial incentive for pulling carbon out of the air”

Nori is one of several companies that is building a marketplace for carbon capture. Farmers, foresters and others who can prove they’re sequestering atmospheric carbon for at least 10 years can put it up for sale on Nori’s website.

“If we want people to do something they’re not currently doing, the best way to get them to do it is by paying them,” said Nori CEO Paul Gambill. “So what we need is a financial incentive for pulling carbon out of the air.”

“We’re practising an atmospheric circular economy”

Finnish company Solar Foods turns captured CO2 into protein that can be used for a variety of foods. This could feed humanity while using far less land and avoiding the carbon emissions produced by industrial agriculture.

“The key question Solar Foods is dealing with is, how do you enable a carbon-dependent society to shift to a circular carbon system?” asked Solar Foods’ CEO Pasi Vainikka.

“That’s our perspective,” he said. “It’s about enabling the end of the concept of mining [fossil fuels]. It is practising an atmospheric circular economy.”

“How come we can’t turn carbon into our biggest resource?”

Dutch company Made of Air makes bioplastic out of biochar made from farm and forest waste. The material offers long-term carbon sequestration, according to the company’s chief commercial officer Neema Shams.

“What if everything we’re surrounded with was removing emissions instead of releasing them?” said Shams. “Climate change is really a materials problem in that there’s too much carbon in the atmosphere. So how come we can’t turn that into our biggest resource?”

Sewage sludge biochars effects on corn response and nutrition and on soil properties in a 5-yr field …

4 July, 2021
 

30 t ha−1 of sewage sludge biochar (SSB) was capable of replacing NPK for corn yield.

SSB promoted a residual effect on the supply of soil nutrients for up to three years.

The combination of SSB with NPK fertilizer provided all macronutrients for corn.

Soil and plant parameters were not altered by pyrolysis temperature.

30 t ha−1 of sewage sludge biochar (SSB) was capable of replacing NPK for corn yield.

SSB promoted a residual effect on the supply of soil nutrients for up to three years.

The combination of SSB with NPK fertilizer provided all macronutrients for corn.

Soil and plant parameters were not altered by pyrolysis temperature.

Sewage sludge biochar (SSB) is the solid product obtained after the pyrolysis of sludge. In the last ten years, hundreds of studies have evaluated the effects of SSB as a soil amendment over a short period of time. Thus, doubts remain about the temporal behavior of SSB under field conditions. The objective of this study was to evaluate, under field conditions, the effects of SSB on the fertility indicators (pH, potential acidity, Mehlich1-P and -K, CEC and KCl-exchangeable Ca, Mg and Al) and corn yield in an Oxisol over five years. For this purpose, soils receiving biochar produced at 300 and 500°C (SSB300 and SSB500, respectively) and biochar in combination with mineral fertilization (SSB300 + NPK and SSB500 + NPK) were evaluated. Grain yield, soil pH, soil H + Al, and macronutrient contents (N, P, K, Ca, Mg and S) in soil and corn leaves were determined. Over five years, SSB increased total N and Mehlich1-P in the soil. Nevertheless, biochars were unable to raise soil pH and provide satisfactory amounts of K. The combination of SSB with mineral NPK fertilizer provided all the macronutrients required for corn and increased the leaf contents, especially for P, leading to an average 16% increase in grain yield in soils that received the treatment SSB300 + NPK. In general, pyrolysis temperature did not alter the parameters evaluated. SSB has the potential to provide nutrients to the soil, with a residual effect of at least three years, which can be enhanced by combined application with mineral NPK fertilizer.


Meet Biochar Practitioners – Missouri Organic Recycling's CEO Kevin Anderson & Education …

4 July, 2021
 

Missouri Organic Recycling (MOR) is a composting and soil building company that operates in the Kansas City metro area. CEO Kevin Anderson and Education Director Stan Slaughter (in photo above) tell us about their operations and wide array of products.

Q How did you get started with using biochar in your composting operations?

Kevin   About five years ago, we had some organic growers approach us about the quality of our compost. They were not happy with it. They introduced us to David Yarrow, a gardening expert, who showed us how to use biochar, rock dust, clay and a few other ingredients to improve the compost. Biochar improves the composting process, too. It helps a lot with the odors. The smell of ammonia is the smell of nitrogen loss. Our Green Frontier compost has more nutrients and greater stability according to the tests we run that are approved by the US Composting Council. And the organic growers really like it. Some of them won’t use anything else.

Q How many of your products use biochar?

Kevin  Our Garden Soil Blend and our Raised Bed Mix both use the Green Frontier compost. We also have a product called Soil Restoration that is a 50:50 mix of biochar with Green Frontier. When you include the biochar content of the Green Frontier compost, it has a total of 66% biochar.

Q How important is education to your business? And what strategies do you use to get the word out?

Kevin  Education is everything!

Stan  I do a lot of public speaking to garden clubs – I think I have spoken to every garden club in the city. We also sponsor an all-organic farmer’s market and have a booth there where we give away 5-pound bags of compost. And then we have our school programs. I have done many programs in schools over the years, but this last year we had a grant to really expand our reach. I wrote a curriculum that meshes with the state science standards so it is really helpful to teachers. It is based around four ten-minute videos and after the students work through all the material, they do their own science project with compost, worms or soil. We were statewide in 44 schools this year. We also have food waste collection in an entire school district with 45 school buildings participating. We help kids understand the problem of food waste – 40% of food we produce is never eaten. Then we help them be part of the solution.

Kevin  When we expose the younger children to information about compost, food waste, and soil, then when they get to high school they do science fair projects about those topics, and by the time they are grown up, they are educated consumers. It’s working. Right now, we are selling all the compost we can make.

Q You have these huge programs and operations for composting, gardening, food waste recycling, urban wood recycling, soil building and education. Is there any other composting company that is doing anything like this?

Kevin Well, you know, everything’s up to date in Kansas City!

Meet Biochar Practitioner Karl Strahl, VP, Oregon Biochar Solutions, Biochar Business …

4 July, 2021
 

Oregon Biochar Solutions (OBS) is a subsidiary of Biomass One, a 30 MW biomass power plant in White City, Oregon, that produces biochar and electric power.

Q You are early in your career. How did you choose biochar as your focus?

A  I had originally planned to get a degree in business, but I had a great professor in college who encouraged me to pursue environmental science, and I found that I really enjoyed it. After graduating with a degree in environmental science and communications, I worked for Solar City in New York selling solar panels. We saturated the market, covering 15% of the available roof space, so it was time to take on another challenge. A family member recommended Oregon Biochar Solutions. I could quickly see that, unlike solar, there was no real market yet for biochar, so it was risky, but I like a challenge.

Q What are you doing to develop markets for biochar?  

A  Currently, I’m looking at biochar as a substitute for products that already have a market, such as activated carbon for water filtration, or various soil conditioners used in growing media. We can make granular and powdered biochar that work as well as or better than other materials in these applications and compete on price. We can produce 3500-4000 tons of biochar year, so we are looking at bulk commodity markets.

Q What about carbon markets? Do you see any potential there?

A We are in the process of getting our biochar listed on the Puro Earth carbon removal trading platform. It’s a complicated process and we are very happy to be getting help from GECA Environnement in Canada. There are lots of details to address and they specialize in this.

Q How does Biomass One balance the power output of the plant with biochar production? Is there a significant tradeoff? And does the company make most of its income as a power plant or as a biochar production plant?

A Producing biochar with our plant has no impact on the power output of the plant. It requires a very slight increase in the amount of biomass fuel we use. The largest share of our revenue comes from electricity sales, followed by tipping fees for our greenwaste drop-off service. Biochar and our soil blending yard make up the last piece of the revenue stream. But even though we make money selling electricity, it makes more sense to think of Biomass One as a wood waste recycling plant that recovers value from waste in the form of electricity and biochar.

Q What is one change to existing business conditions that would help significantly grow biochar markets?

A To really move biochar to where it needs to go, we need incentives to help farmers repair the land and rebuild their soil. We are experiencing extreme land degradation and losing topsoil. Environmental science tells us we need to help farmers implement regenerative practices, including biochar. A federal-scale incentive will be required to make this happen. Above all, it’s a matter of food security now and for the future.

Carnarvon eyes green diesel ahead of oil project

5 July, 2021
 

Carnarvon Petroleum formed a joint venture to produce green diesel and is eyeing the production of carbon offsets as it becomes the latest oil and gas player to seek to head off an escalation of climate pressures around its oil production plans,

The 50:50 joint venture with Frontier Impact Group will focus on the production of renewable diesel from plant biomass in a refinery that would also produce biochar that can be further refined into graphene.

The Dorado oil project between Santos and Carnarvon Petroleum is due to start production in late 2025. 

Production from the $100 million bio-refinery is targeted for late 2022, ahead of Carnarvon’s target for the restart of production from its Buffalo oil field in Timor-Leste in late 2023 and the start of its $2.6 billion Dorado oil project with Santos two years later.

Carnarvon was one of the oil and gas players targeted by the Australian Securities and Investments Commission last year over non-disclosure of climate change risks. It has since produced its first sustainability report and aligned its climate change-related disclosure with the Taskforce on Climate-related Financial Disclosures system.

It has now also committed to net zero carbon emissions before 2050, with all its current Scope 1 and 2 emissions to be offset.

Chief executive Adrian Cook said Carnarvon – which currently produces no oil or gas – had been thinking before the ASIC letter about its pathway to net zero once its fields came online.

He said the joint venture demonstrates Carnarvon’s start to delivering on its net zero commitment while also making “strong business sense”, creating another potential source of revenue and diversifying from a sole focus on fossil fuels.

The news came as industrial gases company BOC sealed a five-year deal to purchase green power from from a waste-to-energy project in Kwinana, WA, and from Shell Energy. The deal will cut BOC’s greenhouse gas emissions in Australia by 16 per cent.

BOC will buy large-scale renewable energy certificates from the Kwinana plant owned by Avertas Energy, and will start receiving electricity for its Kwinana and Canningvale sites from retailer Shell Energy from mid-2022. Avertas is a venture between Macquarie Capital and fund management company DIF, while Acciona, Keppel Seghers and Veolia are also involved in the $700 million waste-to-energy project.

The gases company, which is owned by Linde, said the deal will help it support the efforts by Australa’s largest food and drink manufacturers and other manufacturers to decarbonise their operations. It will buy enough renewable energy certificates to ensure that all the carbon dioxide and liquid nitrogen it supplies to the food and beverage sector can by produced by 100 per cent renewable energy starting from 2023.

At Carnarvon, Mr Cook said Carnarvon and Frontier ultimately envisage a number of similar renewable diesel plants across the state At this stage, the explorer has committed to invest $2.6 million in seed capital to take the first project through to financial close, which is targeted for early 2022. Carnarvon expects to source external capital and green funding for the project.

“There is a clear link between the delivery of our core projects, securing carbon offsets for these through this venture and producing valuable products such as renewable diesel,” Mr Cook said.

The first plant would produce about 19 million litres a year of renewable diesel, at a site likely to be in WA’s south-west.

Meanwhile a separate multi-year power purchase agreement was signed by Marubeni Corporation’s SmartestEnergy Australia subsidiary, which will purchase the output from more than 30 community-based solar farms across Victoria and NSW held by Providence Asset Group.

Providence said it also plans to deploy green hydrogen energy storage and production units at the solar farms.


Patriot capitalises on next renewable energy megatrend

5 July, 2021
 

Link copied to
clipboard

Patriot Hydrogen has identified another significant source of income from its revolutionary, portable “P2H” (Patriot to Hydrogen) units for hydrogen and power production.

Patriot has discovered it can boost its bottom line through the production of something called “biochar” – a stable, carbon-rich form of charcoal used to increase soil fertility.

This is an extremely lucrative market, with demand for biochar use in organic farming rising quickly given its ability to increase crop yields and productivity. Farmers have also discovered the benefits of using biochar in soil for livestock feed, which is another area of demand expected to drive growth in sales.

The global biochar market size is estimated to reach $US3.1bn ($4.1bn) by 2025, according to Grand View Research. It is expected to increase at a CAGR of 13.2% over the forecast period.

New revenue opportunities for biochar also arise from its ability to reduce greenhouse gas emissions in energy production.

Patriot, which is proposed to be 20 per cent owned by ASX-listed Prominence Energy (ASX:PRM) subject to PRM shareholder approval and due diligence by PRM, has the exclusive Australian licence for a scalable containerised hydrogen production system capable of delivering compressed hydrogen and biochar in Australia by late 2021/early 2022.

The company revealed on Tuesday the opportunity had led to “further major accounts in Australia for the production and use of biochar”.

The P2H units produce 1 tonne per day of green hydrogen and up to 4 tonnes per day of biochar per unit.

Biochar can fetch as much as $600 a tonne on market depending on volume.

Patriot says at an average cost of $2.9m each, excluding technology licence fees, the P2H units are economically viable for businesses to enter the hydrogen production and energy revolution.

The P2H units utilise waste and biomass to produce hydrogen and also biochar that can be used as a green energy source to displace the use of fossil fuels.

The new technology uses pyrolysis to convert waste materials into gas (hydrogen-rich gas or pyrolysis gas) and carbon biochar, which can be sold and used for various industrial or agricultural applications.

Patriot will produce liquid hydrogen for export and domestic markets and to fuel large vehicles, buses, boats, trains and cars, as well as biochar to supply domestic markets.

The company has already locked in several buyers for its P2H units.

Branches around an inch to an inch and a. Alternatively, you can do what hawaiian biochar makers do and use the excavated soil to build up walls around the lip of the pit. You can make biochar in the garden by doing a controlled burn in a trench right in your garden area.

Add some compost and mix it all together. We dug a small conical pit in an old sand pile for our first burn, then gathered sticks from the woods and broke them up into manageable sizes. The second part can only occur with the presence of oxygen.

Soaking the biochar in water, along with added nutrients, such as compost tea. It looks like my liner held up better than i thought it would, but we will see when i got to unload the pit if it really makes enough difference to be worth the extra work. Cone pits also cost nothing to create & the size can be varied to suit your production needs & land available.

About double (2.8 t/co2e and higher) on account of the avoided emissions. About 50% of the carbon in the organic matter is sequestered in the biochar. Buku ini dijual terbatas, dapatkan sekarang juga.

Pile up woody debris in a shallow pit in a garden bed; If we think we need to make more biochar, and we’re keeping air quality in mind, better equipment matters. The biochar pit sides seemed to have the best char, so to maximise edges the next pit i try will be long and narrow, maybe 1200 x.

Then gather your fuel and cut it into short lengths that will fit nicely in the pit. Build up a good bed of coals; How to make biochar at home.

Making biochar to improve soil one method of making biochar: Covered with soil to allow for slow smoldering (figure 2). Needed to make biochar can be created inside an open.

Methods include pit or mounds that are set on re and then. How we made simple biochar. A good design would also be to make the tin fit snugly inside the biochar pit so that it falls as the wood burns down, rather than getting stranded on the pit edges.

Make sure the fire is burning hot; Our pits are a couple feet deep. > > the size of the pit is an important element, earlier.

When woody biomass (dried, not green) is pyrolysed, all of the volatile components burn away and leave behind a carbon skeleton in a very stable, hard carbon form. A more detailed description of the open pit biochar production method : At those beginning days we used a biocharlie.

In a pit, the biochar is covered with more wood as it is produced. Set fire to the material which will initially give off clouds of white smoke. Fill the hole with your feedstock and light a fire.

A simple cone pit to make biochar. 1.) in the bottom of an earthen pit, start a fire. I mixed diameters near the end without seeing a problem, it all ended up as char except for the last pieces, larger diameter.he says to finish with small.

And there you have it, a giant pit full of biochar! There is going to be a lot of variance here, but lca estimates for an open pit burn look something like 1.4 t/co2e captured per ton of biochar. You can also make biochar in a burn barrel.

Algae biochar enhanced methanogenesis by enriching specific methanogens at low inoculation …

5 July, 2021
 

The effects of algae biochar at different inoculation ratios were investigated.

Biochar enhanced methanogenesis at the lower ratios but not at the higher ratio.

Methanogenic improvements at low ratios were not due to initial OLR increment.

Microbial community structures at low ratios were all significantly changed.

Biochar addition at low ratios was more favorable for Methanosarcina enrichment.

The effects of algae biochar at different inoculation ratios were investigated.

Biochar enhanced methanogenesis at the lower ratios but not at the higher ratio.

Methanogenic improvements at low ratios were not due to initial OLR increment.

Microbial community structures at low ratios were all significantly changed.

Biochar addition at low ratios was more favorable for Methanosarcina enrichment.

Carbon materials are promising in improving the performance of anaerobic digestion, however, interactive mechanisms between the carbon-based enhancement and operating parameters remained unclear. Using anaerobic digested sludge as inoculum, the effects of Taihu blue algae biochar (ABC) on methanogenesis at different inoculation ratios were investigated during sludge anaerobic digestion. Results showed that ABC enhanced methane productions at the lower inoculation ratios (4% and 1%, v/v), but not at the higher ratio (10%, v/v). Mechanism analysis demonstrated methanogenic improvements at the lower inoculation ratios were not owing to initial organic loading rate increments. Otherwise, ABC addition at the lower inoculation ratios were more favorable for the enrichment of Methanosarcina than the higher ratio, which might be benefit for methanogenesis through directed interspecies electron transfer. Thus, for the improvement of sludge anaerobic digestion, the microbial enrichments at different inoculation ratios would be more important than the merely biochar addition.


Enhancing degradation of atrazine by Fe-phenol modified biochar/ferrate(VI) under alkaline …

5 July, 2021
 

Biochar enhanced Fe(Ⅵ) oxidization of atrazine (AT).

Biochar can promote the formation of more hydroxyl radicals and Fe(Ⅴ)/Fe(Ⅳ).

The reduction products of Fe(Ⅵ) can effectively remove TOC.

Fe(Ⅵ)/biochar process could significantly reduce the toxic effect of AT on luminescent bacteria.

Biochar enhanced Fe(Ⅵ) oxidization of atrazine (AT).

Biochar can promote the formation of more hydroxyl radicals and Fe(Ⅴ)/Fe(Ⅳ).

The reduction products of Fe(Ⅵ) can effectively remove TOC.

Fe(Ⅵ)/biochar process could significantly reduce the toxic effect of AT on luminescent bacteria.

In this study, Fe-phenol modified biochar was prepared to enhance atrazine (AT) degradation by ferrate (Fe(VI)) under alkaline conditions, and the properties, mechanism and transformation pathways were extensively investigated. Degradation experiments showed that Fe-phenol modified biochar was more beneficial for improving the oxidation capacity of Fe(VI) than unmodified biochar, and the biochar with a molar ratio of Fe3+ to phenol of 0.1:5 (BC-2) showed the best promoting effect, and more than 94% of AT was removed at pH 8 within 30 min. Moreover, the rate of oxidation (kapp) of AT by Fe(VI) increased 1.86 to 4.11 times by the addition of BC-2 in the studied pH range. Fe(Ⅴ)/Fe(Ⅳ) and ·OH were the main active oxidizing species for AT degradation in the Fe(VI)/BC-2 group and contributed to 70% and 24%, respectively, of degradation. The formation of ·OH and Fe(Ⅴ)/Fe(Ⅳ) was mainly due to the persistent free radicals and reducing groups on the surface of BC-2. AT was oxidized to 12 intermediate products in the Fe(VI)/BC-2 group through 5 pathways: alkyl hydroxylation, dealkylation, dichlorination, hydroxylation, alkyl dehydrogenation and dichlorination. Compared with those of the initial solution, the total organic carbon content and toxicity after the reaction decreased by 32.8% and 19.02%, respectively. Therefore, the combination of Fe-phenol modified biochar and Fe(VI) could be a promising method for AT removal.


Charcoal Machine: Learning To Make Biochar From Sawdust Efficient

6 July, 2021
 

Did you know that with a charcoal making machine(reciclaje maquina: planta de carbonización) you can recycle sawdust and transform it in a product which has higher economic value? A fundamental sawdust biochar machine lets you convert the biomass waste into sawdust biochar within 20 minutes. What’s more, the conversion transpires inside a sealed unit, rendering it safe, efficient and eco-friendly.

If you would like discover how to make biochar from sawdust efficiently in Russia, by way of example, Beston can provide you with your own business plan and machinery price estimate. Further down the road, the company can also provide you with fast equipment installation services and operator training.

Past Sawdust Charcoal Machine Projects

Beston has customers from all of throughout the world. They already have successfully shipped and assembled sawdust charcoal machines(caso de BESTON) in Spain, Ukraine, Russia plus more. Look for about successful cases about the manufacturer’s official website. Many of the cases have photographs and videos showing Beston’s biochar machines in full operational mode. One of the many main reasons why the manufacturer will be the go-to choice for biomass waste to charcoal equipment for a lot of is simply because their machinery employs advanced carbonization technology, unique structural engineering, modern carbonizing furnaces, high-grade components, effective emission cleaning technologies and a lot more. The manufacturer’s excellent after-sale services also helped so they are a famous global brand.

Sawdust To Charcoal Making Process

The whole process of converting sawdust into charcoal involves four key stages: drying, carbonization, emission cleaning and discharging. The drying stage might be skipped if the raw materials have a moisture content below 20%. After the drying stage, sawdust is transferred in to the carbonization furnace using a belt conveyor system. Since the temperature in the oxygen-sealed reactor starts to rise, combustible gas and biochar are designed.

Beston’s sawdust charcoal machines are fitted with residual gas emissions units, that incorporate dedusting systems to reduce all sulfur from your combustible gas. The combustible gas is likewise sent via a condensing system to extract wood vinegar and wood tar. After passing throughout the purification systems, the resulting biogas is brought to refuel the carbonizing furnace.

After carbonization, the sawdust charcoal from the reactor is simply too hot being directly collected. So, it is sent via a discharging system which includes an incorporated cooling system to lower the temperature of the biochar for safe collection.

Sawdust Charcoal Machine End Products

The ultimate products from a sawdust charcoal machine are bio charcoal, wood vinegar, wood tar, and biogas. The key uses of sawdust charcoal include cooking fuel, soil fertilizer, and chemical processing. To be used from the chemical industry and metal refinery industry, bio charcoal is transformed into activated carbon. The wonderful thing about sawdust charcoal is it carries a high carbon content. This implies it has a high caloric value and produces little smoke during burning.

For those wondering about the price of the other byproducts from the sawdust to biochar process, you should recognize that wood vinegar is an extremely good pest repellent. Wood vinegar is likewise non-toxic, so you can use it in mosquito repellent spray for children.

Effect of dissolved biochar on the transfer of antibiotic resistance genes between bacteria …

6 July, 2021
 

1.It was the first time to found dissolved biochar could affect the spread of ARGs.

2.The transfer efficiency was pyrolytic conditions and concentration dependent.

3.Humic acid can significantly improve the transfer efficiency of ARGs between bacteria.

1.It was the first time to found dissolved biochar could affect the spread of ARGs.

2.The transfer efficiency was pyrolytic conditions and concentration dependent.

3.Humic acid can significantly improve the transfer efficiency of ARGs between bacteria.

The spread of antibiotic resistance genes (ARGs) is a global environmental issue. Dissolved biochar is more likely to contact bacteria in water, producing ecological risks. This study explored the effects of dissolved biochar on ARGs transfer in bacteria. Conjugative transfer efficiency was significantly different following treatment with different types of dissolved biochar. Typically, humic acid-like substance in dissolved biochar can significantly improve the transfer efficiency of ARGs between bacteria. When the concentration of dissolved biochar was 10 mg biochar/mL, humic acid-like substance substantially promoted ARGs transfer. An increase in dissolved biochar concentration weakened the ARGs transfer from humic acid-like substance. The inhibitory effects of small-molecule matters dominated, decreasing conjugative transfer frequency. At a concentration of 100 mg biochar/mL, the conjugative transfer efficiency of all treatments was lower than that of control. Compared with corn straw dissolved biochar, there were more transconjugants in pine sawdust dissolved biochar. Following treatment with 10 mg biochar/mL pine sawdust dissolved biochar, the number of transconjugants was at its maximum; approximately 7.3 folds higher than the control. We also explored mechanisms by which dissolved biochar impacts conjugative transfer. Due to the complex composition of dissolved biochar, its effects on the expression of conjugative transfer-related genes were also dynamic. This study investigates the ecological risk of biochar and guides its scientific application.

It is essential for the sustainable development of agriculture to enhance nitrogen use efficiency (NUE) of crop plants by increasing yield and reducing nitrogen (N) losses. Biochar-based fertilizer (BF) has received increasing attention because of its full play to the advantages of chemical compounds with sufficient N and less N loss risk with good adsorption characteristics, but this potential was seldom reported for open-field vegetable crops, NUE of which were significantly lower than cereal crops. A field trial was conducted to investigate the efficacy of BF on NUE in vegetable cropping system by comparison with chemical fertilizer (CF) and partial substitution of organic fertilizers to chemical fertilizers (COF). The yield, plant N uptake, residual soil mineral N, and N losses via leaching and ammonia volatilization from an open vegetable (water spinach, Ipomoea aquatica L.) field were analyzed. The results indicated that BF treatment had significantly higher yield, plant N uptake, and NUE (agronomic efficiency and recovery efficiency as the NUE indicators), compared with those of CF and COF treatments. N losses via leaching were respectively accounted for 53.30%, 37.74%, and 33.39%; and N losses via ammonia volatilization were respectively accounting to 1.13%, 0.78%, and 1.54% of N fertilizer applied (at a rate of 200 kg N/ha) in CF, COF, and BF treatments. Despite the increasing ammonia volatilization due to the alkalinity of biochar, BF treatment significantly enhance NUE by increasing N uptake by water spinach and minimizing N losses via leaching. This study suggested that BF could serve as a promising slow-release N fertilizer for sustainable N management in field vegetable production and provided critical information for the development and dissemination of BF management guidelines.

Made of Air, a Berlin based startup, has developed a new carbon negative thermoplastic. The material is developed using waste from forests and farms in the countryside surrounding Berlin.

The material, also called Made of Air, is 90% carbon and stores two tonnes of CO2 for every tonne of plastic. Made of Air is carbon negative, in that it stores more CO2 than it releases into the atmosphere. Architects Allison ​Dring and Daniel ​Schwaag founded the startup in 2016 — their previous project together was the pollutant-absorbing cladding called Prosolve370e.

The material is created from biochar, a form of charcoal created by heating biomass to extremely high temperatures in an oxygen-free furnace. This process, called pyrolysis, reduces the biomass to just carbon. Biochar is commonly used as a fertilizer, but it is becoming more and more popular as an efficient tool for removing carbon from the atmosphere and combating climate change. Biochar remains stable for centuries, and so will not release its carbon back into the atmosphere for a very long time, unlike the short lifespan of decaying biomass.

Made of Air is made from forestry offcuts and agricultural waste, plant material, and wood that is naturally full of carbon. After creating the biochar, the company infuses it with a binding material created from sugar cane, and the end result is thermoplastic granules that can be used in normal plastic molding and production.

The new thermoplastic has already begun to see some use — the company recently partnered with clothing retailer H&M to produce a pair of limited edition carbon-negative sunglasses. The material’s most impressive real life application to date is its use in the building of an Audi dealership in Munich. The dealership was clad in seven tonnes of Made of Air pressed into hexagonal panels, which the company claims stores fourteen tonnes of carbon.

According to the startup, there are five main areas where bioplastics can be realistically applied — urban infrastructure, building facades, interiors, transport, and furniture. The company is currently in talks with manufacturers about possibly producing carbon-negative parts for cars, and also the possibility of Made of Air furniture.

Made of Air hopes to see the practical applications of its material play a part in the rapid urban growth that can be observed across the planet, giving this rapid growth an active part to play in slowing down climate change.

Field aging alters biochar's effect on antibiotic resistome in manured soil – ScienceDirect

6 July, 2021
 

Fresh biochar amendment resulted in an enrichment of ARGs in unplanted soil.

Pakchoi cultivation increased the number and relative abundance of ARGs.

Aged biochar caused a reduction of ARGs in planted soil.

Biochar aging significantly affected ARG profile by altering soil microbiome.

Fresh biochar amendment resulted in an enrichment of ARGs in unplanted soil.

Pakchoi cultivation increased the number and relative abundance of ARGs.

Aged biochar caused a reduction of ARGs in planted soil.

Biochar aging significantly affected ARG profile by altering soil microbiome.

Current understanding of biochar's effect on antibiotic resistance genes (ARGs) in soil is limited, and whether the effect could change after long-term field aging remains largely unknown. In this study, we employed high-throughput quantitative PCR to assess the effect of biochar amendment on soil resistome as affected by three years of field aging. Application of fresh biochar significantly elevated the number and abundance of ARGs in the manured soil, but did not show such effect under pakchoi cultivation. The presence of aged biochar caused a marked reduction of ARGs only in the planted manured soil. Results of principal coordinate analysis and structural equation modeling indicate that biochar's effect on soil ARG profile was changed by field aging through altering soil microbial composition. These results highlight the necessity of considering aging effect of biochar during its on-farm application to mitigate soil antibiotic resistance.

Patriot Hydrogen’s P2H units are small and transportable, which the company intends to market as a premium advantage over existing hydrogen technologies, which require interlinkage with existing large-scale infrastructure.

Alongside its development and sales of the P2H units, Patriot will also establish a biomass-to-hydrogen plant in Port Anthony, Victoria. 

Patriot is enthused to be proponents within the Australian biochar industry, which the company believes will be a ‘megatrend.’ 

“The units produce one tonne per day of green hydrogen and up to four tonnes per day of biochar per unit … [the] P2H units are economically viable for businesses to enter the hydrogen and biochar production,” the company said. 

“Patriot… will produce liquid hydrogen for export and domestic markets and to fuel large vehicles, buses, boats, trains and cars, as well as biochar to supply domestic markets.”

Biomass feedstocks for the P2H units can be diverse, but sawmills are of particular interest, where forestry products are labelled as ‘renewable feedstock’. 

Sweetman Renewables Limited recently purchased a P2H unit for A$2.9M following their recent acquisition of a sawmill on the Australian east coast.

Sawmill waste, post-processing through a P2H unit, can effectively be marketed as Biochar, for which the global market is predicted to reach US$3.1B by 2025 under current CAGR forecasts. 

The company’s other division, Sweetman Biomass has won a lucrative long-term contract to supply Verdant Earth Technologies’ A$550 million 151-MW biomass power station, in the Hunter Valley.

Can biochar be a sustainable solution for wastes in the agricultural sector? – News and Events …

6 July, 2021
 

By Dr. Tan Yie Hua

Biomass can be defined as organic matter used as fuel to produce electricity or heat, and Malaysia generates millions of tons of biomass each year. This includes materials such as wood, rice husk, coconut shells, sawdust, straw, bamboo, palm kernel shells and sewage sludge, which have the potential to be used in a variety of industrial activities.

Oil palm is the major crop that generates the most biomass in Malaysia. In 2008, oil palm cultivation in Malaysia covered some 4.49 million hectares and this is expected to increase tremendously in the coming years. This high-gain industry is expected to produce almost 100 million dry tonnes of solid biomass by the year 2020. Currently the biomass produced is used for fertilisers, animal feed and bio-energy production, and they are formed into pellets for ease of transportation.

Other than oil palm, municipal solid waste follows closely as the second-highest contributor of biomass residues in Malaysia, followed by other types of biomass such as wood, rice and sugarcane.

Many types of solid waste materials can be utilised from the palm oil extraction process such as the empty fruit bunch, shell, fibre, palm kernel, fronds and trunks. Sugarcane bagasse is also produced in large amounts and is one of the major agricultural residues processed in Malaysia, especially in Perlis. Generally, one tonne of sugarcane generates 280 kilograms of bagasse, which is the fibrous by-product that remains after sugar extraction.

 

Another example is rice, which is one of the main crops widely produced in the world whereby almost 100 million tons of rice husks are produced yearly, 90 per cent of which are generated by emerging countries including Malaysia.

These agricultural residues are often used to feed farm animals in small quantities. However, most are being discarded or burnt on land. For that reason, it is beneficial for locals to make use of these resources for more valuable use.

The exploration of the potential utilisation of this renewable energy is also highlighted in the 10th Malaysia Plan where the government is encouraging efforts to explore higher prospects of different biomass usage in various industries.

Biochar, meanwhile, is a type of carbonaceous material obtained from the thermochemical conversion of biomass in an oxygen-limited environment. Compared with conventional carbon materials such as carbon black and activated carbon from coal coke, biochar has several merits.

Firstly, its feedstock is renewable, and its preparation process is simple. Biochar can be obtained as the main product of biomass carbonisation, or as a by-product of biomass gasification and fast pyrolysis. Emerging techniques such as microwave pyrolysis and hydrothermal carbonisation allow production of biochar with more superiorities.

Secondly, the physicochemical properties of biochar can be facilely tailored according to its specific application. A series of biochar modification strategies have been developed to functionalise biochar to be applied in different applications.

An organic compound is naturally enriched with carbon, oxygen and metal salts which encompasses calcium, sodium and magnesium. During the combustion process which occurs at elevated temperatures, the amount of carbon and oxygen initially present in the compound will instantaneously decrease. As a result, the major active component that remains in the ash will include a variety of alkali metal oxides such as magnesium oxide, potassium oxide and calcium oxide.

Consequently, the catalytic activity of the ash produced is significantly increased due to its high content of basic oxides. Because of these advantages, biochar has great potential to be used in the fields of heterogeneous catalysis, farm-based renewable energy, pollution control, etc., in a climate-friendly manner.

In conclusion, we should by all means reuse the waste from the agricultural sector by turning them into biochar and contribute to sustainable agriculture.

Patriot Hydrogen’s P2H units are small and transportable, which the company intends to market as a premium advantage over existing hydrogen technologies, which require interlinkage with existing large-scale infrastructure.

Alongside its development and sales of the P2H units, Patriot will also establish a biomass-to-hydrogen plant in Port Anthony, Victoria. 

Patriot is enthused to be proponents within the Australian biochar industry, which the company believes will be a ‘megatrend.’ 

“The units produce one tonne per day of green hydrogen and up to four tonnes per day of biochar per unit … [the] P2H units are economically viable for businesses to enter the hydrogen and biochar production,” the company said. 

“Patriot… will produce liquid hydrogen for export and domestic markets and to fuel large vehicles, buses, boats, trains and cars, as well as biochar to supply domestic markets.”

Biomass feedstocks for the P2H units can be diverse, but sawmills are of particular interest, where forestry products are labelled as ‘renewable feedstock’. 

Sweetman Renewables Limited recently purchased a P2H unit for A$2.9M following their recent acquisition of a sawmill on the Australian east coast.

Sawmill waste, post-processing through a P2H unit, can effectively be marketed as Biochar, for which the global market is predicted to reach US$3.1B by 2025 under current CAGR forecasts. 

The company’s other division, Sweetman Biomass has won a lucrative long-term contract to supply Verdant Earth Technologies’ A$550 million 151-MW biomass power station, in the Hunter Valley.

India has been facing a silent rural employment crisis for years. Farms are increasingly financially unlucrative, leading the rural youth to migrate in search of jobs. As a result, the average age of farmers has increased, threatening India’s food security. With declining yields, increased climate vulnerability and an aging farming population, India fears a food security crisis in future. 

Simultaneously, India is fighting to preserve its biodiversity, alongside its overall ecological and climate resilience. Under the Paris Agreement, India has committed to restoring 13 million hectares of degraded and deforested land by 2020. Yet, data from Global Forest Watch suggests an overall decline in forest cover. 

About 60% of Indian economy is dependent on nature, covering sectors ranging from natural resources to food, fisheries and tourism. Building a naturally positive economy, especially for rural communities, is one of the low-hanging fruits we must build on in the coming years. 

The articles talks in detail about composition milk and its nutritional and health value.…

Effective management of India’s farmlands, including the optimising land use through agroforestry models, is the first step. This includes allowing farmers to sow more crops in a single area while minimising overall inputs through the natural regeneration of soil through crop complementarity. Biochar and the introduction of higher-value low-input crops such as bamboo or mushrooms, are other solutions. Employment opportunities can be generated through heirloom seed preservation efforts. Similarly, restoring and regenerating the native bee species, critical to maintaining the farm’s natural support systems, will also create job opportunities.

Solar is another avenue for expansion. Existing schemes in states like Karnataka allow farmers to sell excess power from solar pumps back to the government. Through models like agro-voltaics, where solar panels are installed at a height over croplands, farmers get additional revenue by selling the power produced back to the grid, while powering their own farms and reducing their overheads. 

To restore and manage India’s forests, investment is crucial. A 2009 estimate suggested that investing in the forestry sector alone could create 10 million jobs and generate up to $4 billion (at that time) in value for the GDP. Since then, India’s forests have only degraded, making forest restoration, protection and management a highly underleveraged opportunity for green jobs. With over 250 million Indians dependent on forests for their livelihoods, a full- scale restoration plan for forests across the country can create jobs that counteract the pressures of migrating to urban centres for jobs. Full-scale forest restoration and agroforestry plans in the North East, for example, could generate up to at least 2 million jobs. 

Using the MGNREGS scheme for forest and green cover restoration can sequester up to 249 MT of carbon by 2030. An opportunity to build a rural carbon market by leveraging REDD and other payments for ecosystem services programs, this creates opportunities for rural communities to restore forests and become forest and carbon managers. India seeks to create an additional carbon sink of 2.5-3 billion tonnes through green cover under the Paris Agreement. 

India needs robust climate-smart agricultural policies tailored to local conditions, which crucially elevates indigenous and local crops. Farming that optimizes the land’s natural capital, such as agroforestry, must be supported. Effective crop insurance is vital, as is the need for market-based connectivity. 

Sikkim’s rollout of the Sikkim Organic Mission is a big lesson. Market connectivity was built at the local village level through village-based traders – enabling farmers to directly sell their produce with an immediate guarantee on earnings. Extensive workshops & training were provided to skilled farmers. Market linkage support has to extend beyond branding and selling to include collection points, immediate payment at local levels and clusters to enable effective scale. The past year has hammered home the need for business models and policies that invest in restoring nature. The quicker we can ramp up our efforts to deliver a sustainable, resilient economy and businesses, the better we will be to face the biodiversity and climate crisis. A nature-positive economy does not have to be a burden.

It is an opportunity to invest in creating sustainable jobs in rural India, enhance the economic and spending power of citizens and foster a robust, future-oriented economic recovery.

Using Crushed Rock to Tackle Climate Change

7 July, 2021
 

My last article focused on the need for large-scale carbon sequestration with a look at a project in northern British Columbia that shows promise for meeting this challenge. Its approach takes biodiverse seed packets enveloped in biochar for nutrients and moisture retention and uses drones to spread these casings over wide areas to regenerate forests. This method of reseeding forests works especially well in remote, inaccessible terrain where replanting by hand is impossible.

Forests, or more specifically, the growing of trees, have been scientifically proven to pull carbon dioxide from the atmosphere. The calculations of some scientists, however, suggest that this natural process cannot achieve the scale of carbon drawdown required to offset our ever-growing carbon emissions. They cite the availability of land for forest restoration being the limiting factor. Consequently, another natural process is being considered to enhance and accelerate the storing of carbon not only in forests but on farms as well. This process occurs when rain dissolves the carbon dioxide that is present in air, creating a weak carbonic acid. If this acid falls on basalt rock, it reacts to form a carbonic mineral (calcium carbonate) that locks up the dissolved carbon for hundreds of thousands of years.

Basalt is the most common rock found on Earth’s surface. It is formed primarily from volcanic eruptions. Various forms of basalt are widely used in construction as aggregate in asphalt and concrete mixes and as base layers for highways and railroads. Although dense, this igneous rock crushes easily. Once pulverized into dust, it can be spread relatively inexpensively on forest and farmland, making it readily available for rain to wash carbon out of the air and accelerate the process of sequestration. The understanding of this process, called “enhanced weathering,” is not new, but because it speeds up a natural process, it has only recently been explored for its potential to offset human-made emissions that are causing climate change.

The Future Forest Company, a recent start-up company, is conducting a trial of this sped-up weathering approach on a large birch and oak forest on the Isle of Mull in Scotland. Results of the trial will be known soon. If the data show the expected increase in carbon sequestering, then this accelerated weathering process could potentially capture gigatons of carbon dioxide when applied to forests and on farms around the world. Reseeding of forests is still needed, but enhanced weathering can supplement forest restoration and be applied to farmland as well.

A novel elemental composition based prediction model for biochar aromaticity derived from …

7 July, 2021
 

Basic elemental compositions are used to predict biochar aromaticity.

The exponential rule model outperforms existing polynomial models.

Basic elemental compositions are used to predict biochar aromaticity.

Predictive model of biochar aromaticity is developed by Genetic Programming.

Exponential rule between elemental compositions and C aromaticity is revealed.

The exponential rule model outperforms existing polynomial models.

The measurement of aromaticity in biochars is generally conducted using solid state 13C nuclear magnetic resonance spectroscopy, which is expensive, time-consuming, and only accessible in a small number of research-intensive universities. Mathematical modelling could be a viable alternative to predict biochar aromaticity from other much easier accessible parameters (e.g. elemental composition). In this research, Genetic Programming (GP), an advanced machine learning method, is used to develop new prediction models. In order to identify and evaluate the performance of prediction models, an experimental data set with 98 biochar samples collected from the literature was utilized. Due to the benefits of the intelligence iteration and learning of GP algorithm, a kind of underlying exponential relationship between the elemental compositions and the aromaticity of biochars is disclosed clearly. The exponential relationship is clearer and simpler than the polynomial mapping relationships implicated by Maroto-Valer, Mazumdar, and Mazumdar-Wang models. In this case, a novel exponential model is proposed for the prediction of biochar aromaticity. The proposed exponential model appears better prediction accuracy and generalization ability than existing polynomial models during the statistical parameter evaluation.

Winona's new compost site contract

7 July, 2021
 

Winona’s Twice-Weekly Newspaper Since 1971. Click here to Advertise in the Winona Post.

(7/7/2021)

From: Dick Gallien

Winona

 

The city of Winona may be the first in Minn. not adjacent to a power plant, that for the next two years will not be wasting its waste wood. Since 1993, this natural resource has been officially written off as “waste wood,” just $5 for a yearly burn permit.  

Few knew that on June 4, for the first time ever, bids were let to operate Winona’s compost site. At the June 21 City Council Meeting, the decision was finalized.

Today’s Tree Service of La Crosse had the low bid at $48,000. At Winona’s compost site, adjoining the sewage plant, they will chip and grind Winona’s waste wood, then truck it to power plants in La Crosse.

The Winona Farm at $49,500 offered to continue being open every day from dawn until dark, as it has been since 1990, with no charge for residential deposits of yard and wood waste and no charge for returning home with hand loaded manure-ized compost and wood chips. All of Winona’s “waste wood” would’ve been turned into biochar, lumber and firewood and these 175 acres would’ve moved toward becoming Winona’s Farm. (Read more about biochar at https://www.nrri.umn.edu/natural-resources-research-institute/news/biochar.)

Essential for The Winona Farm’s Community Service Compost Site’s survival during these next two years is a nonprofit to which this farm can be donated. For most, being a board member of a compost site rates only one step above being a board member of a sewage site. Hopefully a few of you have more vision for this farm than it becoming another wealthy family estate, in that it is protected from development by the Minnesota Land Trust.

Composite coatings based on a UV-LED curable epoxy-acrylate resin were formulated

Porcupine-like particles based on biochar and carbon nanofibers were used as fillers

UV-LED cured composite films show improved dynamic-mechanical properties

The thermo-oxidative stability of the cured films is not affected by PuP structures

Improved thermal and electrical conductivities were achieved for the composite films

Composite coatings based on a UV-LED curable epoxy-acrylate resin were formulated

Porcupine-like particles based on biochar and carbon nanofibers were used as fillers

UV-LED cured composite films show improved dynamic-mechanical properties

The thermo-oxidative stability of the cured films is not affected by PuP structures

Improved thermal and electrical conductivities were achieved for the composite films

In this work, multi-functional coatings based on a UV-LED curable epoxy-acrylate resin and different loadings (namely, 1, 2.5, 5 and 10 wt.%) of carbonaceous structures having a peculiar porcupine (PuP)-like morphology were formulated and thoroughly characterized through thermal, dynamic-mechanical and electrical analyses. More specifically, biochar-based particles derived from cellulose nanocrystals were modified through the growth of carbon nanofibers onto their outer surface, aiming at combining the effects of globular and high aspect ratio structures in a single filler. The preliminary characterization of the carbonaceous structures documented the achievement of a highly carbonized material involving spherical biochar particles having an average diameter ranging from 15 to 20 μm, covered by fibers displaying length up to 100 μm. As assessed by dynamic-mechanical characterization, the UV-LED cured composite films showed a progressive increase of the storage modulus values as a function of the amount of embedded PuP structures, indicating a strong level of interfacial interactions between the polymer network and the particles. Furthermore, the introduction of increasing amounts of PuPs induced a progressive increase of the material thermal conductivity (from 0.109 W/mK for unfilled cured resin, up to 0.161 W/mK, for the composite film containing 10 wt.% of filler) and a remarkable enhancement of the electrical conductivity (up to (3.1±0.2)⁎10-2 S/m, for the composite film containing 10 wt.% of filler), thus pointing out the effectiveness of the proposed approach of surface modifying biochar particles in obtaining composite coating films with superior properties.

Thermal Stabilization of HEWL by Adsorption on Biochar | Noritomi | Journal of Materials Science …

8 July, 2021
 

We have found that the heat stress tolerance of hen egg white lysozyme (HEWL) is markedly enhanced by the adsorption of HEWL on bamboo charcoal powder (BCP), which is a kind of biochar. HEWL was firmly adsorbed on BCP even at high temperatures. The secondary structure of HEWL was altered to some extent by the adsorption of HEWL on BCP. The remaining activity of BCP-adsorbed HEWL exhibited more than 20% after the incubation for 30 min at 900C although that of free one was hardly observed. Moreover, the half-life of BCP-adsorbed HEWL was 13 min at 900C while that of free one was 4 min.

A critical review of the possible adverse effects of biochar in the soil environment – ScienceDirect

8 July, 2021
 

The review summarises the possible adverse biochar effects considering 259 studies.

Adverse effects may arise due to changes in soil properties upon biochar addition.

Soil organisms, mostly earthworms, suffer from biological adverse effects of biochar.

Several unfavourable soil-biochar combinations were identified.

A holistic approach is needed to reveal all possible, long-term adverse effects.

Adverse effects may arise due to changes in soil properties upon biochar addition.

Soil organisms, mostly earthworms, suffer from biological adverse effects of biochar.

Several unfavourable soil-biochar combinations were identified.

A holistic approach is needed to reveal all possible, long-term adverse effects.

Biochar has received extensive attention because of its multi-functionality for agricultural and environmental applications. Despite its many benefits, there are concerns related to the long-term safety and implications of its application, mainly because the mechanisms affecting soil and organism health are poorly quantified and understood. This work reviews 259 sources and summarises existing knowledge on biochar's adverse effects on soil from a multiangle perspective, including the physicochemical changes in soil, reduced efficiency of agrochemicals, potentially toxic substances in biochar, and effects on soil biota. Suggestions are made for mitigation measures. Mixed findings are often reported; however, the results suggest that high doses of biochar in clay soils are likely to decrease available water content, and surface application of biochar to sandy soils likely increases erosion and particulate matter emissions. Furthermore, biochar may increase the likelihood of excessive soil salinity and decreased soil fertility because of an increase in the pH of alkaline soils causing nutrient precipitation. Regarding the impact of biochar on (agro)chemicals and the role of biochar-borne toxic substances, these factors cannot be neglected because of their apparent undesirable effects on target and non-target organisms, respectively. Concerning non-target biota, adverse effects on reproduction, growth, and DNA integrity of earthworms have been reported along with effects on soil microbiome such as a shift in the fungi-to-bacteria ratio. Given the diversity of effects that biochar may induce in soil, guidelines for future biochar use should adopt a structured and holistic approach that considers all positive and negative effects of biochar.


Here's Why Aspiring Green Thumbs Need Willow Organic Biochar

8 July, 2021
 

“Hearst Magazines and Verizon Media may earn commission or revenue on some items through the links below.”

There are a lot of cool things out there that make us wonder — do they really work? In our I Tried It series, we set out to use them in the real world and have determined that, in fact, they really do.

On Trial: Willow Biochar Soil Amendment

Tester: Bridget Clegg, concerned plant parent

The Brief: While I'm not a crazy plant lady, I'm not not a crazy plant lady either. I've managed to keep a hearty roster of houseplants alive over the years, but always seem to kill off thirsty basil plants after a few weeks. With my eyes set on maintaining an indoor herb planter for summer salads and cocktails, I decided to bring in some Willow Organic Biochar to boost my chance of success.

Biochar is a soil amendment — something you add to potting soil to change its texture, enrich it with different nutrients, change the pH or encourage the growth of healthy microbes. It's made through pyrolysis, a process where plant waste is burned to create small particles of charcoal that, in turn, makes for richer soil. Chad Massura, the CEO and

founder of Willow, explains: “Our organic biochar is made from Georgia soft pine wood and has not been mixed or blended with any other materials. We’ve partnered with lumber mills to help redirect their waste material from landfills and have converted it into a useful, carbon-negative amendment.”

Weight: 1 pound

Ideal soil ratio: 1 part Willow to 5 parts potting soil

Pounds of CO2 removed from carbon cycle: 3

Willow aerates soil and helps it to retain water so that you can water your plants half as often as you normally would. Massura adds, “Biochar improves the underlying soil structure, which allows it to do great things like retain more nutrients, improve beneficial microbial growth, develop healthier roots, and grow bigger, happier plants!”

Willow aerates soil and helps it to retain water so that you can water your plants half as often as you normally would.

Beyond the personal benefit of less-careful watering schedules, biochar also works to reverse climate change by absorbing carbon dioxide. Think of it as a CO2 storage unit that stays in operation for hundreds of years. "By redirecting organic materials from landfills and pyrolyzing them, we stabilize their carbon content, preventing those greenhouse gases from being released into the atmosphere," says Massura. Although it's not a new technology (the brilliance of biochar stems back to ancient farming techniques used in the Amazon basin), Willow packages it for today's green thumbs in 1-pound bags that sell for $19. According to the brand, that one pound of Willow means 3 pounds of CO2 are removed from the carbon cycle.

I put Willow to the test with my new herb planter by mixing it into regular potting soil at a ratio of 1:5. For the math-challenged, this means you'll empty an entire bag of Willow into a 5-pound bag of potting soil. I planted my herb starters, watered them, and set them on my windowsill in fairly direct sunlight. I buried the remaining biochar into some of my existing leafy potted plants to help them out, too.

Closing Argument: After a month of picking off basil and mint leaves for cold drinks and summer rolls, my planter is thriving! I check on the soil moisture, pay attention to any withering leaves, and drain about a cup of water into the planter every 4 days. I now have much less anxiety about keeping up with the watering schedule compared to my previous attempts at growing basil in terra cotta pots with only potting soil, especially during the extreme heat of high summer. Willow is a win for me!

β-cyclodextrin/Hydrothermal charcoal enhanced Pb and Cd adsorption capacity to 150%.

Removal efficiencies of Pb and Cd were above 86% by electrokinetic-permeable reactive barrier with β-cyclodextrin/Hydrothermal charcoal enhanced.

Over 80% of Pb and Cd removal were contributed by complexation and electromigration.

Heavy metals in the soil are major global environmental problems. Waste cotton was used to synthesize a novel β-CD/hydrothermal biochar (KCB), which is a low-cost and environment-friendly adsorbent for heavy metal soil remediation. KCB were used as reactive materials of electrokinetic-permeable reactive barrier (EK-PRB) to explore the removal characteristics of heavy metals. FTIR and XPS analysis revealed that KCB contained large numbers of surface functional groups. Adsorption of KCB for Pb2+ and Cd2+ reached 50.44 mg·g−1 and 33.77 mg·g−1, respectively. Metal ions in contaminated soil were removed by reactive barrier through electromigration, electrodialysis and electrophoresis, the removal efficiency of Pb2+ and Cd2+ in soil reached 92.87% and 86.19%. This finding proves that KCB/EK-PRB can be used as a cheap and green process to effectively remediate soils contaminated with heavy metals.

Pune Scientist designs a technique to convert garden waste into fuel for your Kitchen

8 July, 2021
 

Priyadarshini Karwe, an award-winning scientist from Pune has developed an innovative method that creates eco-friendly biochar fuel from agricultural and garden waste. The process reduces the carbon footprint released into the atmosphere by about 30%.

According to a report by ICAR, India generates about 350 million tonnes of agricultural waste every year. This waste is usually burnt, releasing toxic smoke into the air, and contributes to air pollution. Additionally, the increasing urbanisation is leading to excessive consumption. It eventually results in more waste and depletion of natural resources. Pune-based Dr Priyadarshini Karve came up with an innovative solution to manage waste sustainably. Through her enterprise, Samuchit Enviro-Tech (established in 2005), Karve provides feasible and accessible eco-friendly solutions using biochar for sustainable living practices.

The award-winning scientist Karve innovated the technology to convert agricultural waste into biochar briquettes in the late 1990s. It involves biomass gasification of Agri waste with a controlled air supply, also known as pyrolysis. “Making biochar is similar to any other method of decomposition,” comments Karve. The biochar making unit, Trashflasher kiln, is filled with agricultural or garden waste and covered with a lid. Under controlled combustion, volatile gas burns off, leaving behind near pure carbon – biochar. After following an extensive process of hammering, mixing, and compressing, we get the biochar briquettes. These briquettes serve as smokeless fuel and are used to make many products, including soap and deodoriser. 

Karve explains the modified design of the kiln for urban waste, “The kiln is essentially double-walled along with strategically placed holes on it.” The first layer consisting of dry organic waste is lit and covered by a lid. The air from the holes enters the chamber, initiating the gasification process. The heat from the first layer permeates the other layer and drives out the volatile gases that burn off. While the product obtained is 30 per cent of the total carbon in the biomass, the remaining releases into the atmosphere without causing pollution. The kiln costs Rs 7,000. The biochar locks 30 per cent of the carbon in the garden waste that would otherwise go into the atmosphere.

Karve has also designed a smokeless cooker stove that runs on high-performing biochar. One can easily prepare a simple meal for 2-5 people, including dal, rice, chapatis using 100 gms of char and a glass of water. Low-temperature cooking results in tasty and nutritious food. When she pitched the product in the rural areas, there were hardly any takers because of the cost and the novel technique. After a series of upgrades, she came up with a compact design made of stainless steel instead of mild steel. Karve shares, “Although the fuel used burns completely within 30 minutes, the food cooks in the steam and heat remaining from the burning.” Currently, the stove costs Rs 3,500 and has been doing good in the market.

Karve was always fascinated by the concept of physics that one form of energy gives way to another. Nothing goes to waste. She recalls, “While walking or cycling back to home from school, I’d come across lush green sugarcane fields.” She remembers how the farmers would burn the agricultural residue producing smoke that would cause discomfort to the villagers and animals. It turned out to be her motivation many years later when she got the opportunity of designing a solution for waste management during her PhD. Karve firmly believes that we need to change our ways early to prevent a disaster in the making. Her current focus remains on cutting down the carbon footprint in urban living.

 

Karve shares when she started working on sustainability, there were hardly any organisations working in this field. However, with time, more people have begun to explore developing eco-friendly solutions for waste management. It makes her happy, and she would love to continue training budding social entrepreneurs, organisations, and citizens to adopt sustainable practices and propagate them further.

Biochar Facility Yarra Ranges Council

9 July, 2021
 

We’re opening a Biochar Facility at Lysterfield Waste Transfer Site which we anticipate will be ready by October 2022.

The biochar produced will be available for sale to farmers, horticulturalists and home gardeners.

Biochar is a carbon-rich form of charcoal that can be added to soil providing many benefits including:

By creating biochar, we are effectively capturing carbon and locking it into the soil. This helps draw down carbon from the atmosphere which mitigates climate change.

Biochar is produced from woody materials such as prunings and fallen branches.

The process for turning woody materials into biochar is known as Pyrolysis. Pyrolysis involves heating the woody materials in an oxygen-limited environment. 

In the future we also hope to capture some of the excess heat and transform this to electrical energy to help run the facility and export to the grid.

How Do Geoengineering, Carbon Dioxide Removal Solutions Address Climate Change?

12 July, 2021
 

In the 2020 TV series Snowpiercer, scientists attempt to reverse catastrophic climate change by seeding the atmosphere with particulates. The experiment works a little too well, and the planet is plunged into a new ice age that wipes out almost all of humanity.

Geoengineering — also known as climate engineering — involves the counteraction of climate change through large-scale intervention in the planet’s climate system. While geoengineering solutions are theoretically sound, they may introduce an array of unknown or negative consequences that could be even worse than climate change.

Geoengineering solutions generally fall into two main categories:

The basis of climate change is an imbalance between the solar irradiance absorbed by the Earth and the amount of energy radiated back into space. Greenhouse gas concentrations in the atmosphere mean our planet is absorbing more energy than it lets out (known as radiative forcing), leading to higher temperatures.

Solar geoengineering involves addressing this imbalance by increasing the Earth’s albedo, or solar reflectivity. However, this approach only treats the symptom of climate change rather than the cause: reflecting more energy into space will lower the planet’s temperature, but will not remove any carbon dioxide from the atmosphere or do anything about its other effects such as ocean acidification.

Solar geoengineering is therefore seen by many as an emergency option if runaway climate change causes tipping points that will lead to abrupt or irreversible change. Increasing albedo could buy humanity time to reduce emissions and remove existing built-up CO2 from the atmosphere.    

There is also a risk of “termination shock” if aerosol injection is stopped for any reason, causing a rapid temperature change that would wipe out plant and animal life.

Unless further measures are taken, CO2 emissions will hang around the atmosphere for anywhere between 300 and 1,000 years. Tackling climate change therefore doesn’t only involve decarbonizing the global economy; it also means addressing the emissions that have been created since industrialization.

Carbon dioxide removal (CDR) involves capturing CO2 from the atmosphere and storing it underground for centuries. CDR shouldn’t be confused with carbon capture which involves capturing carbon directly from a smoke stack and sequestering it underground. 

CDR methods include:

A major concern among environmentalists is the creation of a moral hazard situation, where today’s governments and businesses reduce or delay mitigation and adaptation efforts (i.e. do nothing) because they believe a silver bullet will be deployed in the future.

ClimateCentral.org explains: “Nobody knows if atmospheric carbon removal… will work, and it could delay critical cuts to emissions while tacitly giving people license to pollute.”

Biochar Market Size, Key Factors, Major Players, Growth Strategies, Trends, Forecast Till 2027

12 July, 2021
 

Escalating demand for biochar as livestock feed is one of the significant factors influencing the market growth.

Biochar Market Size – USD 1.45 billion in 2019, Market Growth – CAGR of 12.3%, Market Trends – Surging demand in greenhouse remediation

The global Biochar Market is expected to reach USD 3.67 Billion by 2027, according to a new report by Reports and Data. It finds usage as a feed additive and is considered beneficial for the improvement of feed efficiency, animal health, and environment for livestock housing. Livestock rearing is providing better growth prospects for the use of biochar. Animals ranging from earthworms to chickens and cattle, among others, show great interest in food when biochar is added to it. In the European Union, around 90.0% of the biochar is used to feed livestock, and remaining is used in applications, including spreading on agricultural land with manure. A direct application of the product in poultry rearing is the reduction and elimination of odors produced from poultry litter, especially ammonia. The strong positive electric charge of ammonia makes it corrosive and harmful to breathe. This chocking gas is released by bird droppings, making the air toxic and unhealthy to living beings.

Growing demand for high crop yield is one of the significant factors influencing the market growth. The product allows farmers to increase their crop yield by boosting the productivity of the agricultural land, as well as can make an otherwise less productive land produce substantial yields. Biochar soil amendment improves crop productivity mainly by increasing nutrient use efficiency and water holding capacity.

Key participants include Diacarbon Energy Inc., Cool Planet Energy Systems Inc., Agri-Tech Producers LLC, Biochar Products Inc., Vega Biofuels Inc., Phoenix Energy, Pacific Pyrolysis, The Biochar Company, Clean Biofuels BV, and Biochar Supreme LLC, among others.

Evaluation of biochar derived from the slow pyrolysis of rice straw as a potential adsorbent …

13 July, 2021
 

The CO2 adsorption capacity of biochar derived from the slow pyrolysis of rice straw and the influence of surface modification via amine impregnation on the biochar were evaluated in this study. The biochar’s (BC) surface characteristics, selectivity, adsorption capacity, and regenerability were compared to that of a commercial activated carbon (CAC). It was observed that the surface chemistry of the biochar greatly affects its ability to adsorb CO2. Tetraethylenepentamine (TEPA) was used to functionalize the surface of the samples. Under the scanning electron microscope (SEM), the BC sample was porous; however, modifying it caused some blockage in the sample. On the other hand, the CAC sample exhibited very fine particles while its modification showed no obvious qualitative change under the SEM. All the samples, both pure and modified BC and CAC, were identified to be selective to CO2. CAC gained the highest CO2 adsorption capacity of 9 wt%, followed by TEPA-50/CAC (5.7 wt%), BC (2.6 wt%), and TEPA-50/BC (2.4 wt%), under pure CO2 gas condition. Interestingly, under CO2-N2 gas mixture, the adsorption capacity of rice straw biochar is comparable to that of the commercial activated carbon. The biochar from rice straw can be an economic solid adsorbent for CO2 with further improvements.

The project transforming biosolids into biochar

13 July, 2021
 

A new wastewater management strategy will recover biosolids headed for landfill and transform them into re-usable products for farmers.

The Biosolids to Biochar project is using technology developed by RMIT University — a process called pyrolysis, in which high temperatures destroy pathogens and microplastics in biosolids — to create biochar, a carbon-rich form of charcoal that farmers and the wider agriculture industry can use to improve soil health.

Currently around 30% of the world’s biosolids are stockpiled or sent to landfill. The project’s circular approach to wastewater management has the potential to address this issue and eliminate landfill waste across the water industry.

South East Water is helping to deliver the Biosolids to Biochar project in partnership with RMIT University, Intelligent Water Networks and Greater Western Water, with the technology currently in trial at the Melton Recycled Water Plant in Melbourne.

A comparison of biochar (left) and traditional biosolids (right).

Steve McGhie MP, Member for Melton representing Acting Minister for Water Richard Wynne, recently toured Greater Western Water’s Melton Recycled Water Plant for a first-hand demonstration of the new technology.

“This collaboration will enable the water industry to find alternative markets for biosolids, reducing waste going to landfill and allowing 100% of products to be re-used or recycled,” McGhie said.

“By creating a safe product with a steady supply stream, we’re also providing our farmers and the wider agriculture industry a product which is completely natural and can improve soil health and fertility. This project is incredibly exciting for both industries and I can’t wait to see the outcome of the trial.

“This project is an excellent example of like-minded organisations working together with a shared commitment to sustainable solutions. By re-using and adding value to biosolids, we recover local resources, reduce landfill and create renewable energy to reduce our greenhouse gas emissions.”

South East Water Managing Director Lara Olsen said that supporting these kinds of innovative emerging technologies is an important part of South East Water’s commitment towards reduced emissions and a circular economy approach towards wastewater.

“The disposal of biosolids is a challenge across the water industry. South East Water is continually looking for ways we can work with others to create innovative solutions to protect our environment and to help our customers and community.

“This technology is important as it can be scaled to any size, making it a possible solution for both urban and regional water utilities,” she added.

The pyrolysis plant, currently being trialled at the Melton Recycled Water Plant in Melbourne.

Associate Professor Kalpit Shah, Deputy Director (Academic) of the ARC Training Centre for Transformation of Australia’s Biosolids Resource at RMIT University, said that developing new ways to squeeze the full value from waste resources is critical in our transition to a circular economy.

“At the heart of RMIT research [is] our strong partnerships with industry, and we hope this collaborative trial will enable us to accelerate the translation of our innovation into new home-grown technologies that advance sustainability and make a real impact in water and agriculture,” Professor Shah said.

Greater Western Water Managing Director Maree Lang and Intelligent Water Networks Program Director Dean Barnett also expressed their excitement and being involved in the project.

The next stage of the trial will involve scaling up the technology, with a dedicated unit in place at a water recycling plant over a longer period of time.

The pros and cons of biochar in horticulture

17 July, 2021
 

Photo courtesy of Dr. Mike Parker

A tractor spreads biochar in a field.

The biggest handicap to growing crops in the Sandhills is the sandy soil. Acidic and low in organic matter, it does not hold water or nutrients. These ills can be modified by adding organic matter in the form of compost, cover crops or organic mulch, but the organic matter breaks down and needs to be reapplied every year. What if something could enhance the soil permanently? That is where biochar comes in. Biochar is a type of charcoal that is used as a permanent soil amendment to improve soil’s water and nutrient holding capacity.

To make biochar, organic materials such as timber waste or poultry litter are heated to a high temperature in the absence of oxygen. Such decomposition is called pyrolysis. The heating removes water and gases and leaves a stable, mostly-carbon substance. For use in farming, the char is ground into a powder that is applied to the soil. It provides many of the same advantages as compost, such as water and nutrient retention and a better microbial community. However, whereas compost breaks down within one year in a hot, humid climate, biochar can last for hundreds or even thousands of years. The most famous example is in the Amazon basin, where biochar added as far back as 6000 years ago still renders the soil darker and more fertile than the surrounding, nutrient poor soil.

To test the efficacy of biochar in a Sandhills peach orchard, NC State’s Tree Fruit Specialist Dr. Mike Parker is conducting a 10-year study at the Sandhills Research Station in Jackson Springs. Four different treatments include biochar applied annually to the soil surface, and biochar incorporated in the soil to make 5% or 10% by volume of the soil, to a depth of one foot in a 10-foot-wide strip. For comparison, another group of trees, the “control,” have no biochar in the soil. Four years into the study, the biochar trees have not shown significantly different growth, survival or fruit production compared to the control group. However, the CEC (Cation Exchange Capacity) and potash in the soil have increased. CEC is a measure of nutrients available to plant roots, so higher is better. Potash is a necessary nutrient that is low in our sandy soil because it leaches out easily. The biochar itself usually does not supply enough potash for the plant crop; it mostly helps the soil to retain the potash that is applied. In this fertilizer retention role, biochar acts like compost, but is more stable. Whereas compost breaks down within a year in our climate, biochar lasts for thousands of years even in the hotter, wetter climate of the Amazon basin.

In a study with common beans, biochar persisted longer and had a higher CEC than other forms of soil organic matter. It also increased bean yields and N fixation by beans.

Besides field studies, biochar is being tested to replace Perlite in the substrate for container plants. The porosity of biochar is similar to that of Perlite, but biochar has better water retention.

From an environmental perspective, the pyrolysis of organic matter produces heat and gases that can be used for energy production. Biochar reduces fertilizer runoff and potentially reduces fertilizer needs. Because biochar stores carbon for centuries, it has the potential as a tool in the fight against climate change.

With all these benefits, why isn’t everyone using biochar? On the down side, as seen in the peach study, biochar can take years to start improving plant crop production or the soil chemistry. Furthermore, biochar has not been standardized. Different feedstocks and processing temperatures and times lead to products with different properties. Research is ongoing to find the combinations that make the best biochar for specific applications, and the best percentage of biochar in the soil to maximize production. The biggest downside so far, though, is the cost. For garden-scale applications, prices start at about $4 per gallon, enough to add to 4 square feet of garden space. I could not find any biochar for sale in large quantities in our area.

Research on biochar and kiln design continues at universities like NC State and USDA. It also continues on a small, informal scale at Flow Farm in Moore County. The owner, Mark Epstein, has the goal of finding a design by which a kiln can be made for $50,000 – $100,000, and to have 5,000 kilns spread across the U.S. that can sell biochar for $10/ft3, rather than his current price of $35/ft3 (about $4.67/gallon). Time will tell whether all the research can make biochar economically viable and available for commercial growers.

In this study, the ionic cross-linking method was used to synchronize the granulation and magnetization of biochar powder. A precursor of Ca/Mg modified, tobacco stalk biochar combined with sodium alginate as the functional monomer, CaCl2 solution as the cross-linking agent, and a Fe3O4 magnetic fluid dopant were used to prepare magnetic biochar particles (EMCSB3), which were easy to separate and recover. The adsorption performance of phosphate by these EMCSB3 was explored. The Langmuir model fitted adsorption capacity of phosphate on the EMCSB3 was 8.93 mgP/g, which was comparable to other materials at the same concentration. The process of phosphate adsorption by magnetic particles followed a pseudo-second-order model, and the adsorption mechanism was chemisorption. EMCSB3 was suitable for use in environments with pH ≤ 8, the best dosage was 6.67 g/L, and its removal rate was maintained at about 85%. Phosphate adsorption was greatly affected by coexisting CO32-. This study provides a technical approach for the granulation and magnetization of powdered biochar and improves its feasibility of use.

Women in STEM award winners for 2021 announced

18 July, 2021
 

Five exceptional Queensland female STEM professionals were today recognised for their outstanding initiatives as part of the 2021 Queensland Women in STEM award ceremony.

Minister for Communities and Housing, Minister for Digital Economy and Minister for the Arts Leeanne Enoch said today we celebrate these inspiring Queensland women who make remarkable contributions in the fields of science, technology, engineering and maths (STEM).

“This is the sixth year the Palaszczuk Government, together with the Queensland Museum Network, has presented these prestigious prizes to amazing women conducting research that is making a real impact transforming our lives now and into the future,” Minister Enoch said.

“I applaud all of them for the enthusiasm they are fostering in STEM.

“Now more than ever, science education and literacy are an important part of our plan for economic recovery from COVID-19, creating jobs in science, and improving health and wellbeing outcomes for the Queensland community.”

“That’s why the Palaszczuk Government will also continue to support the Queensland Museum Network’s delivery of the World Science Festival Queensland and its regional programming with $9 million over three years from 2021-22.

Minister Enoch said the quality of applicants for 2021 has been making great impressions here in Queensland as well as on the international science stage, contributing to world-leading research, science education and knowledge.

“This year’s winner of the Judges’ Award is PhD candidate, medical student and Fulbright Scholar at The University of Queensland, Chloe Yap,” Minister Enoch said.

“Chloe is working towards identifying biological markers that can improve early autism diagnosis supporting both children with autism and their families.

“I am also pleased to announce Christabel Webber as the 2021 Inclusion Award winner.

“Christabel, who was born profoundly deaf, is undertaking research that explores how farming management practices can impact farming performance to improve soil health and produce higher grain yield.

Minister for Science and Youth Affairs Meaghan Scanlon congratulated all awardees and nominees, and said it demonstrated how Queensland’s women in STEM were leading the way in their fields of expertise and breaking barriers.

“It’s our women in STEM like the Chief Health Officer that have lead Queensland’s response and recovery from COVID-19,” Minister Scanlon said.

“These awards highlight just how important it is for the Palaszczuk Government to continue supporting the work they do, and I’m sure will inspire the next generation of young Queensland women to pursue a career in STEM.

“Three Highly Commended Awards are presented to Fiona Holmstrom, Kate Kingston and Sally McPhee who are all leaders in the STEM community.

Griffith Women in STEM Highly Commended

19 July, 2021
 

Two inspiring Griffith University trailblazers have been recognised at the 2021 Queensland Women in STEM Prize, receiving Highly Commended Awards.

STEM Outreach Manager and Program Leader in the office of the Pro Vice Chancellor (Sciences) Sally McPhee and Honours candidate in the School of Environment and Science Kate Kingston were among an elite group of five exceptional Queensland female STEM professionals to receive awards.

Kate was applauded for her work in investigating techniques for wine growers to improve their soil health by adding organic matter known as biochar and Sally for taking cutting-edge STEM out of the labs and onto the streets by providing STEM pathways, leadership and engagement opportunities for school students and improving teacher confidence and capability in science.

Sally said she was especially grateful for the award but insists it was a team effort.

“I am the current manager of two community-based STEM engagement programs operating across South East Qld: Science on the GO! (SoTG) and the Griffith Science Education Alliance.

“Since their inception in 2005 and 2006 respectively, these programs have engaged more than 545,000 Queenslanders, over 330,000 school students, over 16,000 participants in teacher professional learning and over 200,000 members of the public.

“At its core, my role is about fostering a scientifically literate community and inspiring school students to stay in STEM subjects.”

“This is especially important for young women who are under-represented in STEM, but we need to increase this representation to have equal access to the future STEM-centric workforce.”

Kate Kingston’s research investigates how using biochar to increase soil carbon content affects nitrogen transformation processes in vineyard soil from South East Queensland.

The wine industry is at the forefront of climate change impact due to the sensitivity of the grape vines to environmental change.

Her achievements make her a worthy role model for girls aspiring to work in STEM roles, not the least of which because she is hearing impaired.

“As a deaf woman my academic success is an achievement and testament to my drive for excellence (because) the reality is that deaf and hard of hearing students are disadvantaged regardless of the high level of assistance from disability inclusion programs within higher educational bodies,” she said.

“My STEM academic record includes graduating Bachelor of Environmental Science with Distinction with a GPA of 6.5 and Academic Excellence awards for every year of my enrolment in 2017, 2017-2018, 2018 and 2019. Currently my GPA is 7 and I am working towards achieving First Class Honours.”

Kate said new technology and discoveries made through STEM have changed her life and she wants to pay it forward.

“I am fortunate that due to technological progress from STEM, I can wear powerful and sophisticated hearing aids in both of my ears,” she explained.

“I can use blue-tooth technology to talk on the phone and conduct online meetings and access closed captioning whenever possible.

“STEM enables me to interact and travel widely in the hearing world.”

“Despite technological progress, listening and interacting with people is still a challenge that I and other hard of hearing and deaf people experience every day.

“With my academic and early career STEM achievements, my goal is to inspire deaf and hard of hearing children and mature age as well as single mothers to strive for a fulfilling life in STEM.”

Minister for Science and Youth Affairs Meaghan Scanlon congratulated all award winners and nominees for demonstrating how Queensland’s women in STEM were leading the way in their fields of expertise and breaking barriers.

“It’s our women in STEM like the Chief Health Officer that have lead Queensland’s response and recovery from COVID-19,” Minister Scanlon said.

“Kate Kingston has been a key part of improving soil health for wine growers by adding biochar, and Sally McPhee has played a fundamental role in providing STEM pathways, leadership and engagement opportunities for school students.”

The Queensland Women in STEM prize is presented by Queensland Museum Network in partnership with the Office of the Queensland Chief Scientist and Office for Women.

Biochar Effects on Nutrients Retention and Release of Hydroponics Growth Media | Haraz | Journal …

20 July, 2021
 

Applying biochar (BC) to broad acre crops is an effective way to sequester carbon while improving soil fertility and reducing nutrient leaching. Adopting a similar approach in a hydroponic environment, BC may enhance nutrient availability and reduce natural fluctuations in the nutrient solution. This study monitored the effect of BC addition to peatmoss growth media with ratios of 0%, 5%, 25% and 50% on pH, electrical conductivity (EC) and macronutrient retention, over 15 days using hydroponic nutrient solution controls. Deionised water was used to measure nutrient releases in the closed loop hydroponic system, showing that biochar increased pH level in both retention and release stages. As expected, the pH increased by a maximum of 1.5 units with the highest biochar to growth media ratio due to the natural liming nature of the BC. The EC was also affected, as BC increased in the media EC reduced. With regards to retention of nutrients, BC recovered nitrate, phosphate, calcium and sulphate but did not affect magnesium. Potassium levels increased in solution with increasing BC ratio. In terms of outcomes relevant to global agriculture, the results show that the same level of production can nominally be obtained with around half the nutrient requirements.

A rapid and sensitive approach for enriching and extracting triazines from brown sugar samples was developed by combining magnetic dispersive solid-phase extraction and HPLC/UV. In this work, a magnetic porous biochar (MPB) derived from low-cost bagasse was prepared and successfully employed as an adsorbent. A particular emphasis was placed on optimizing the extraction conditions, including the amount of MPB, extraction time, pH, type and volume of eluent, and salt concentration. Under optimized MSPE conditions, the method showed satisfactory linearity over concentration ranges of 2-200 μg L-1 for four triazines, with correlation coefficient values no less than 0.9981. Low limits of detection (0.27-0.33 μg L-1), good recoveries (81.7-100.7%), and satisfactory repeatability (RSDs ≤ 8.1%) were also demonstrated with respect to the analytical performance. The results demonstrated that the developed method was simple, rapid, sensitive, and efficient, indicating that it could extract and enrich trace triazines from real samples.

SciELO – Brasil – Migration of dissolved organic carbon in biochars and biochar-mineral complexes …

24 July, 2021
 

The objective of this work was to determine the contribution of dissolved organic carbon (DOC) from a biochar mineral complex (BMC), so as to better understand the interactions between DOC, biochar, clay, and minerals during thermal treatment, and the effects of BMC on amended soils. The BMC was prepared by heating a mixture of a H3PO4-treated saligna biochar from Acacia saligna, clays, other minerals, and chicken manure. The BMC was applied to a sandy loam soil in Western Australia, where wheat was grown. Liquid chromatography-organic carbon detection (LC-OCD) tests were carried out on water extracts from the untreated biochar, the BMC, the BMC-amended soil, and on a control soil to measure the DOC concentration. LC-OCD tests provide a fingerprint of the DOC, which allows the fractions of DOC to be determined. Thermal processing enhanced the reaction of the A. saligna biochar with manure, clays and minerals, and affected the distribution of the DOC fractions. Notably, the process leads to immobilization of hydrophobic DOC and to an increase in the concentration of low-molecular-weight neutrals in the BMC. The application of the BMC to soil increases the DOC in the amended soil, especially the biopolymer fraction.

Benefits of Biochar | Sonoma Ecology Center

25 July, 2021
 

One way Sonoma Ecology Center has become a leader in climate action is through a carbon-negative opportunity called biochar—a specialized form of charcoal that can be used as a soil amendment in commercial agriculture or one’s own garden, as a water filtration medium, or even as a sustainable replacement for many industrial fossil inputs.

Biochar is produced by heating woody wastes from forest thinning or agriculture in a low-oxygen environment. There are many different ways of making biochar create different characteristics suitable for different end uses. 

Biochar can be made from many different types of “waste” biomass. We strongly believe that biochar should be made ONLY from sustainably managed sources, which is critical

from both an environmental and business perspective, and that when sourcing biomass from forest environments great care must be taken to preserve and minimize damage to forest ecosystems. Most of the biochar made in California today is produced from unmerchantable materials created during fuels reduction work for fire safety, or from drought and beetle-damaged trees that are dying in record numbers from climate change.

Biochar has a unique physical structure, with thousands of tiny pores that hold the nutrients and water for the plants’ roots to access and enjoy. In many ways it’s akin to a coral reef in the ocean, acting as a natural attractant, sanctuary, and incubator for microbial life and fungi by creating infrastructure for billions of organisms to thrive.

Bags of biochar are available at our Saturday morning Harvest Markets at Sonoma Garden Park

EnviroLeaders assisting our Restoration staff with pot trials at the Sonoma Garden Park nursery with native trees using a biochar/compost blend compared to a control blend using compost and soil only.

For these reasons, Sonoma Ecology Center co-founded The Sonoma Biochar Initiative (SBI), a project dedicated to promoting biochar education and its sustainable production and use throughout California. We collaborate with our strategic partners (such as the Redwood Forest Foundation, Goldridge, Napa, and Mendocino RCD’s, and Sonoma Water) to educate local farmers, foresters, vineyard managers, government officials, businesses, and other stakeholders on the advantages of producing biochar to better utilize surplus materials coming out of our forests to reduce fire hazards and improve community resiliency, and then using the biochar to enhance agricultural productivity while reducing GHG emissions.

We recently received a Cal Fire Urban Forestry grant to purchase a biochar production system. In partnership with a Bay Area tree service (A Plus Tree Company) which will operate our machine, we will start producing our own high-quality biochar later this year from wood chips that, up to now, have been sent to landfills where they degrade over time into greenhouse gases like methane. Much of the biochar made in our machine will be distributed to community gardens in disadvantaged areas of the East Bay and North Bay areas to help build food security and reduce water use.

We invite you to learn more about this program’s recent activities.

Preponderant adsorption for chlorpyrifos over atrazine by wheat straw-derived biochar

25 July, 2021
 

Experimental and theoretical studies have been performed for the first time to investigate the sorption of atrazine as well as the competitive sorption of the coexisting atrazine and chlorpyrifos in solution by wheat straw-derived biochar synthesized at 750 °C through oxygen-limited method (WS750). The sorption of atrazine by WS750 follows pseudo-second-order and Langmuir models. In separate sorption, WS750 has higher sorption quantity (12.0 mg g−1, 0.0556 mmol g−1) for atrazine than that (18.8 mg g−1, 0.0537 mmol g−1) for chlorpyrifos, being due to that the molecular volume (268.8 Å3) of atrazine is smaller than that (350.8 Å3) of chlorpyrifos. In competitive sorption, the sorption quantity of chlorpyrifos by WS750 is 16.5 mg g−1 (0.0470 mmol g−1), which is larger than that (7.3 mg g−1, 0.034 mmol g−1) of atrazine. This is from that chlorpyrifos has stronger pi–pi interaction with WS750 (23.68 kcal mol−1) and larger lipophilicity (log P = 4.7) than that (22.70 kcal mol−1, log P = 2.7) of atrazine. The competitive isotherm sorption of the coexisting atrazine and chlorpyrifos by WS750 can be described well by Sheindorf–Rebuhn–Sheintuch equation. This work is helpful to deep understand the sorption of bi-pollutants in water.

Minister Wilkinson and German State Secretary Jochen Flasbarth will lead the development of a plan in the lead-up to COP26 UN climate summit in collaboration with the COP Presidency.

AMERICAS

Vehicle values – President Joe Biden’s administration will as soon as next week propose rules increasing federal tailpipe GHG standards by ramping up annual targets through model year 2026, the AP reports, citing auto industry and government officials. (Politico) Specifically, the AP said the joint EPA-NHTSA rules will apply the standard adopted in California’s 2019 deal, around 3.7%, starting with 2023 vehicles. That will ramp up through 2025 to roughly Obama-era 5% improvements, and in 2026 go even higher, potentially up to 7%. The EPA also seems poised to revive extra credit granted for electric vehicle sales, the AP said, which automakers say will boost EV adoption but that environmentalists argue waters down the programme and obscures emissions from gas guzzler sales. (Politico)

Closer on disclosure – The top US financial regulator said on Wednesday it may require publicly traded companies to report on GHG emissions by suppliers and partners, as part of an expected climate risk disclosure rule. US Securities and Exchange Commission Chair Gary Gensler said the rule would likely be influenced by existing international standards but would be “appropriate” for American markets. Gensler said he expects to propose the new rule by year end. (Reuters)

What a waste – Mexico’s methane leak rate from oil and gas operations is twice as high as that of the world’s top oil producer, the United States, a group of researchers found in a report due to be released this week. To blame for Mexico’s poor record are mostly high emissions at midstream facilities that gather, compress, and process the gas, Environmental Defense Fund (EDF) said. Another culprit is venting, the practice of releasing gas from oil wells without capturing it. A third source is flaring, or burning gas at the wells. Roughly 4.7% of gas produced in the country is released into the atmosphere – by global standards a very high leak rate. The Mexican results compare with a rate of 2.3% for all of the US and 3.7% in the Permian basin. Reuters was unable to determine whether the problem has improved or worsened under Mexican President Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador, who took office at the end of 2018. But the study estimates 1.3 Mt of methane is wasted in Mexico per year, about one third of the nation’s natural gas imports and equivalent to $200 mln.

Brookfield bucks – Toronto-based Brookfield Asset Management on Tuesday closed $7 bln for its Global Transition Fund that aims to scale clean energy and help carbon-intensive industries cut emissions. The fund, with founding partners Ontario Teachers’ Pension Plan Board and Singapore-based investment heavyweight Temasek, has a cap of $12.5 bln. (Axios)

Canary in the canola mine – The Alberta government is supporting Canary Biofuels, an Alberta-based biofuel producer, with a C$4.7 mln grant through the province’s Technology Innovation and Emissions Reductions (TIER) fund. In total, the facility in Lethbridge County will cost C$28.6 mln and will be capable of producing roughly 70 mln L of renewable fuel each year while cutting more than 220,000 tonnes of emissions. The plant plans to purchase more than C$375 mln worth of feedstock from Alberta farmers over the next five years. (CTV News)

EMEA

Help for H  – The UK government is considering adding a new levy to household gas bills as a subsidy to hydrogen producers in a bid to boost the fledgling industry. The government is set to publish its long-awaited hydrogen strategy next week, which will set out ways to increase the use of the gas as a part of the UK’s plan to reach its 2050 net zero emissions target. Part of the plan will be a consultation on a new mechanism, similar to contracts for difference used in the energy sector, to ensure that hydrogen companies can receive a predictable price for future sales. (FT)

Mandate moves – A cross-party group of UK MPs has joined a growing chorus of calls from think-tanks, former ministers, and climate advisers for the British government to introduce a zero-emission vehicle (ZEV) mandate. The transport select committee say to boost supply and demand of electric cars there should be regulatory requirements for carmakers to sell a minimum proportion of these vehicles which increases over time, or to purchase credits from other manufacturers if they cannot reach the targets. The government’s transport decarbonisation plan published earlier this month included plans to hold a consultation over potentially introducing a ZEV mandate. (BusinessGreen)

Dismantling justice – The British High Court has agreed to hear a case by environmental campaigners claiming that the UK government’s support of North Sea oil and gas companies conflicted with its net zero plans. The legal challenge revolves around tax breaks oil and gas producers receive in order to help cover decommissioning costs. The UK Oil and Gas Authority said in a statement its strategy “which includes net zero requirements on industry, is its primary tool” to hold industry to account on emission reductions. Shell and BP paid no paid no UK taxes in 2019 due to decommissioning tax relief. (Reuters)

Guinea NDC – The Republic of Guinea is the latest country to submit an updated NDC under the Paris Agreement. The West African nation has pledged to unconditionally cut its GHG emissions by 9.7% below BAU levels by 2030. The government added that with international assistance estimated at $13.8 billion, the country could achieve a 17% cut in that timeframe. The NDC forecasts that national emissions will rise under a BAU scenario from 11.8 Mt in 2018 to 12.9 Mt in 2020, to 17 Mt in 2025, and then to 23.2 Mt in 2030.  The unconditional and conditional goals translate into 2030 targets of 21.1 Mt and 19.2 Mt respectively.  Guinea also reiterated its interest in tapping international carbon markets to help achieve its objectives. The LDC previously pledged to cut its emissions by 13% below BAU by 2030 at an international aid cost of $8.2 bln just for funding adaptation and the decarbonisation of the energy sector.

ASIA PACIFIC

Canberra call-up – European, British, and American diplomats have met up to three times in Canberra over recent months to discuss how to encourage Australia to consider stronger cuts to its GHG emissions ahead of November’s COP26 summit, The Guardian reported, citing unnamed diplomatic sources. In addition to pursuing engagement with the Australian government, possible options include outreach to business associations and farming groups.

VOLUNTARY

Biochar offsets – The Climate Action Reserve is launching the development process for a biochar offset protocol. Biochar production provides an opportunity for the productive use of a variety of feedstocks that are otherwise considered waste biomass, including non-merchantable residues from timber harvests and fuel thinnings. Funding support for the protocol development is provided by a Wood Innovations Grant from the USDA Forest Service and a Forest Health Grant from CAL FIRE as part of the California Climate Investments Program. The development of the protocol will be accompanied by a market analysis evaluating the potential scale and anticipated demand for biochar credits and several pilot projects to test viability of offset project requirements. Protocol development is expected to be completed in the summer of 2022. CAR is hosting a biochar protocol V1.0 kickoff webinar on Thursday, Aug. 12. Register here

SCIENCE & TECH

For its game-changing solution to extract CO2 from seawater and sequester it in carbonates, cleantech firm SeaChange won over judges at The Liveability Challenge 2021 to clinch the top place at the global sustainability innovation competition. Emerging out of 450 applications from over 60 countries this year, SeaChange won project grant funding of SGD $1 mln ($737,000) from the Temasek Foundation to develop their project in Singapore. The Liveability Challenge is a global platform that hunts for and accelerates the adoption of innovative solutions to some of the greatest sustainability challenges facing cities in the tropics.

AND FINALLY…

By royal request – Lawyers for the UK’s Queen Elizabeth secretly lobbied Scottish ministers to change a draft law to exempt her private land from a major initiative to cut carbon emissions, The Guardian reported, citing documents obtained by a Scottish lawmaker that suggest the interventions occurred as recently as February. The exemption means the Queen, one of the largest landowners in Scotland, is the only person in the country not required to facilitate the construction of pipelines to heat buildings using renewable energy. The move appears at odds with the royal family’s public commitment to tackling the climate crisis, with Prince William recently joining his father Charles in campaigning to cut emissions and protect the planet. The documents also suggest Nicola Sturgeon’s government failed to disclose the monarch’s lobbying this year when a Scottish politician used a parliamentary debate to query why the Queen was securing an exemption from the green energy bill.

The U.S. Department of Agriculture announced on July 20 that it will be giving up to $200 million to timber harvesting and timber hauling businesses that have experienced losses due to COVID-19 as part of its Pandemic Assistance for Producers initiative.

According to the press release, any company that wants to apply for the financial relief must be a timber harvesting or timber hauling business where 50% or more of its gross revenue is derived from “cutting timber, transporting timber or processing of wood on-site on the forest land (chipping, grinding, converting to biochar, cutting to smaller lengths, etc.).”

Those most encouraged to apply are businesses that lost at least 10% of their gross revenue between Jan. 1 and Dec. 1 of 2020.

“Like many facets of the agriculture industry, the logging industry has experienced its share of financial hardships throughout the pandemic,” said Farm Service Agency Administrator Zach Ducheneaux.

Any business looking to apply must do so through the FSA. They can apply any time before Oct. 15, 2021.

The money received will be based on the difference between the applying company’s gross revenue from Jan. 1, 2019 to Dec. 1, 2019 and Jan. 1, 2020 through Dec. 1, 2020, multiplied by 80%. The maximum amount that any individual or company can receive is $125,000.

'B' is for Biochar | Labrador Institute | Memorial University of Newfoundland

31 July, 2021
 

Now you might ask me, “What’s the big thing about biochar, and as a soil scientist what do you do with this worthless simple thing?” Since I started my job with the Labrador Institute in 2012, my area of research has been centred on this material. I have tested biochar in collaboration with Desmond Sellars and some other local farmers to see whether applying biochar to soil can improve fertility and crop productivity in the sandy agricultural soil of Happy Valley-Goose Bay. But I have not invented this strange idea, nor am I the first person applying charcoal to the unfertile sandy soil to make it productive.

Let’s look at the history of biochar. Archaeological evidence suggests that some 2500 years ago there was a civilization in the Amazon Basin of South America who burned biomass and other organic wastes to create char. They incorporated huge amounts of char into the soil, resulting in an extensive region of highly fertile dark-coloured soil locally known as “terra preta,” Portuguese for ‘black earth’. For centuries terra preta remained fertile and supported the food production of the ancient Amazonians. These terra preta soils are still fertile compared to the adjacent non-terra preta soils developed from the same parent materials but untreated with char.

Over the centuries, biochar was produced using different indigenous methods, but the principle of all these methods was simply to pile and cover the biomass, allowing it to burn slowly under limited air. All the methods used in the past were involved in creating substantial amounts of smoke, but there was no use for the excess amount of heat energy generated during the process. In recent decades there have been improvements in char production techniques, and scientists have developed environmentally friendly technologies that allow the production of specific quality char to be used for specific purposes, such as improving soil fertility, producing bio-energy, reducing greenhouse gas generation, and decontaminating soil and water.

Our local experiments with beets in test plots have shown that adding biochar to the soil greatly increases productivity, when combined with fish meal or chemical fertilizers. We are also experimenting with biochar to treat mine tailings and organic solid waste. Who knew that this ancient technique would make its way to the Labrador Institute!
