Compost and Biochar Production Facility

The compost and biochar production facility is designed to study waste decomposition, produce compost and biochar and determine their characteristics. The compost system is comprised of a waste shredder, automatic sprinklers to moisturize compost and a leachate collection system. The biochar system consists of two fixed and one mobile pyrolysis units.

Biochar production is a technology which helps to combat climate change through soil carbon sequestration. Biochar acts as a conditioner for sandy soil and improves its ability to retain water and nutrients.
