G2-Next Gen Technology
A responsive and intelligent design, The G2-Next Gen serves to advance the accessibility and availability of high quality biochar, meeting the demands of a variety of applications.
G2 Next Gen
With five years of operating experience with the last G1 Series models, the G2-Next Gen encompasses pioneering features and an advanced internal structure.
This enhanced technology can better eliminate the presence of heavy metals and contaminants in biochar, intake a wider variety of biomass feedstock (type and quality) and significantly increase porosity and surface area of the biochar in the production process.
Energy Self- Reliant
We recognize the importance for post-process gases to be used in the production of renewable energy. The continuous production capability of the G2 model unburdens energy reliance on fossil fuels for production. Using an energy efficient model, captured syngas is directed for further product treatment; increasing porosity and surface area. The remaining gasses are processed in an energy recovery boiler to generate steam that is then used for a variety of production purposes; ex. pre-dry biomass feedstock, power a small electrical turbine, and other end uses.
Advancements to the reactor’s processing capabilities allows for better control of the desired properties of the end-product. Control of temperature, dwell-time and greater internal management of feedstock moisture, permits a wider variety of feedstock type and quality. This new range of permissible feedstock is then processed to produce a high-quality biochar. In addition to traditional wood based and agricultural materials, feedstock can include municipal waste and residual sludge from sewage or milling activities.
Precision control of temperature and dwell time facilitates the additional release of light hydrocarbon gasses during pyrolysis. The added exposure to hot exhaust gasses during rapid heating in the activation phase further removes toxic elements like cadmium and mercury from the biochar, leading to a biochar product that is higher in carbon and contains less contaminants.
Designed with the ability to scale to the requirements of an operation, a typical G2-Next Gen reactor can typically process 35 tonnes of bio-feedstock daily, producing 250 kg of biochar per hour of operation. That is an annual production capability of 2000 tonnes of high carbon biochar.
