Creating Solutions to Decrease Global Warming
LUCRAT has developed particularly efficient and user-friendly biochar as a result of numerous scientific tests and real-life applications. Even though biochar looks very similar at first glance, it is capable of achieving a wide variety of functions, depending on its manufacturing process and the organic input material used. Biochar is fertilizer and a medium used for the storage of essential nutrients. Furthermore, it provides long-term habitats for beneficial microorganisms. Most of all, biochar binds carbon, which cannot be transformed into carbon dioxide anymore. This entity makes biochar one of the critical components to help solve the climate challenges.
Biochar is as diverse as the material it can be produced from. For thousands of years, biochar has been used for cooking and heating and improving soil quality, as an additive in animal feeding, to improve biological processes, or as an efficacious remedy. Those applications require a specifically designed biochar to reach the maximum of performance. We at LUCRAT researched with our academic partners the complexity biochar has. Based on this knowledge, we at LUCRAT provide the best biochar for any use case.
Biochar is created through pyrolysis, a thermal decomposition of organic input material in an inert atmosphere. Pyrolysis of organic substances produces volatile products and leaves biochar, a carbon-rich, solid residue. Extreme pyrolysis, which leaves mostly carbon as the residue, is called carbonization. As LUCRAT, we are collaborating with the leading pyrolysis companies. Based on specific briefings on the input material, methods of pyrolysis, and activation, we produce a biochar tailormade for your applications.
Biochar is an effective component to improve and stabilize processes in various fields across industries. The usage will be economically meaningful and ecologically valuable based on choosing suitable biochar. For your application, we will strive to find the best fitting biochar, and we genuinely believe that the usage of biochar is lucrative. The ecological impact is as a surplus generated in the process.
Biochar sequesters carbon dioxide, a lot, permanently, stable. Based on the origin of the input material, the energetic costs of the pyrolysis, and the logistics combined with a cascading usage until the biochar finally reaches the soil, and 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 harmful substances, and creating constitutional effects. With the insertion of biochar into the ground, we will generate certificates helping you or your firm achieve the goal of Carbon Neutrality or Carbon Negativity.
Thriving Into the Future
Research and Development, Ecology and Economy
LUCRAT will always move forward. Tightening legal requirements and decreasing subsidies for biogas production demands an increasing effort from operators of biogas plants. Therefore, the development of useful supplemental products will be even more important, helping to meet the stricter regulations for environmentally friendly and sustainable plant operations, while ensuring economically successful plant operations simultaneously. That is our comprehension of purposeful research.
