For thousands of years charcoal has been used for a variety of purposes including as a fuel source and as a metallurgical feedstock. Recently, however, there has been significant research and interest in using sustainably produced biochar for multiple industrial purposes.
Industrial users of carbon are continually seeking ways to reduce their carbon footprint and many are desirous of reducing their footprint if not achieving carbon neutral production. Biochar applications include:
⦁ Metallurgical high-carbon reductants
⦁ Concrete additive
⦁ Bitumen and asphalt filler
⦁ Activated carbon

Depending on the application, variations in product specs, such as; chemical components, size, density, ash and moisture content, surface area and reactivity become increasingly important. GCS leverages its expertise in pyrolysis and char production to produce biochar products that meet the needs of its customers in a wide variety of industrial markets.
