Food Production

Pyrocal CCT systems have applications in both plant and animal production systems. Plant and animal residues can be carbonised yielding thermal energy and biocarbon (biochar).

The resultant biocarbon has applications back into the production system. Depending on the biocarbon quality, which is affected by the feedstock source and further treatment, potential uses include:

  • Stockfeed additive
  • Soil additive
  • Seed raising mixtures
  • Transplant mixtures
  • Water filtration

Examples of system application include:

  • Carbonising a process residue (such as cotton gin trash and nutshells) to supply process heat.
  • Carbonising rice hulls

The benefits include energy conservation, reduction in disposable waste streams and production of a valuable input.
