working on methods to produce char cleanly and efficiently. Most use energy
from biomass itself to drive the process and many propose to co-produce fuel
from excess flammable gas . This process from Danny Day and the Eprida
Foundation in Georgia adds other nutrients to the biochar based fertilizer
product as well.
|As a mechanical engineer, I can imagine there are many ways to conserve
energy and reduce pollution. As a mechanical engineer with nuclear
experience, I contemplate that the needed energy might even come from nuclear
generated electricity. The production of biochar and fuels could thus be
increased to conserve organic material and provide more fuel for
transportation and other uses.
