Cascadic usage of biochar

150 € / CORC

Description info

We are application professionals when it comes to biochar. Based on our extensive research with partners like the University of Dresden, the Robert Boyle Institute and Fraunhofer UMSICHT we have gained a deep understanding of the performance properties biochar can bring to several industrial applications. Our core area of business has been the application of biochar in the biogas industry. Factors like a higher methane yield, a stable process biology and a decreased need to use core elements are achieved in using biochar in the process. For this we have developed a specific biochar providing and excellent set of physical and biologic properties to ensure the effectiveness of the product. 

Based on this highly complex and sensitive business we are now building bespoke biochar solutions to be used in various industries ranging from animal feeding to decarbonization of industrial products.  

Further impacts:  

The incorporation of the material into industrial value chains allows for compensating CO2 emissions by insetting  Our manufacturing partners work at the highest technological level and are able to secure a carbon negative production. As we are application driven we act independently from producers and can always source the best and best-fitting biochar.  

Using LUCRAT biochar users can decrease or even neutralize the CO2 balances of their products. 

We are a premium partner of the European Biochar Consortium (EBC) and accept and use only the highest product quality, as our capillary carbon CarboFerm® proves in its performance to our customers in their application every day. 

Once stored in the ground biochar provided by us reduces nitrous oxide emissions, nitrate, and phosphorus leakage, helps reducing the utilization of mineral fertilizers and therefore protects groundwater, soil, and promotes the biodiversity of bacteria in the microcosm that is so important to us humans and animals.  

Biochar is an effective component to improve and stabilize processes in various fields across industries. Based on choosing the right biochar, the usage will be economically meaningful and ecologically worthwhile. We at LUCRAT strive to find the best fitting biochar for your application, we truly believe that the usage of biochar is lucrative in itself and the ecological impact can be seen as a surplus.

Examples of usage info

Biochar sequesters carbon dioxide, a lot, permanently, and in a stable way. Based on the origin of the input material, the energetic costs of the pyrolysis, the logistic and combined with a cascadic usage until the biochar finally reaches a soil the sequestration potential goes up to 3.6 tons per ton of biochar. Additionally, intelligent use cases for biochar are further reducing CO2 emissions, replacing poisonous substances, filtering noxious substances and create constitutional effects. With the insertion of the biochar into the ground certificates can be generated helping you or your firm to achieve the goal of CO2neutrality or negativity.

Co-benefits info

Through the different application steps biochar helps to replace poisonous material, it prevents other climate-damaging gases to be emitted and it acts like a storage for nutrients which help plants to grow in the soil. After reaching the soil the carbon is captured for more than a thousand years and with this one of the very few ways of decreasing CO2 is put into action.

Explanation of avoided emissions

With the use of biochar in the biogas industry we only made the first step. We strictly monitored that the biochar used in the fermentation process must be put into the soil by the application partner. With that we can secure that the carbon is stored permanently and the carbon dioxide reduction has effectively happened.

Economic acceleration impact info

The extra income from allows us to further research and develop the key performance factors of several types of biochar which as a result helps to create new applications. With that we pursue the way to permanently reduce the carbon dioxide emissions in various industries.

Audit Information

Compliance to methodology requirements is done by an independent assessor. Their auditor visits the production facility, validates the accuracy of data, including the carbon net-negativity evidence presented in a Lifecycle Assessment (LCA) or Environmental Product Declaration (EPD) report, and issues an audit statement.
