ATB operates its own technical laboratories in the lab and pilot plant scale for producing biochar using different mechanisms such as pyrolysis and hydrothermal carbonization (HTC). The biochar laboratory has adequate facilities for characterizing physical, chemical, and biological properties of biochar.
The primary focus of biochar laboratory is to produce biochar from various organic wastes and to process them accordingly prior to the application in the soil. As a soil conditioner, the biochar increases the sorption capacity of nutrients and water in the soil. The biochar should also lead to a long-term removal of CO2 from the atmosphere and thus establish a carbon sink in the agricultural production chain.
