Biotox - toxicity and biodegradability of a representative bio-oil
PyNe The Biomass Pyrolysis Network, June 2005

The aim of this project was to comprehensively assess toxicity and biodegradability of a representative bio-oil after preliminary screening of a wide range of bio-oils from different processes and temperatures in order to:

* identify the best operating conditions avoiding or minimizing the formation of toxic products from the composition of the bio-oils

Partially burned material a boon to plants: Sandy (Oregon) resident sees biochar as a way to fertilize and capture carbon
By Garth Guibord, The Gresham Outlook, Mar 30, 2007

When most people see a pile of sticks and wood, all they see is sticks and wood. Sandy resident Paul Elmore, 39, sees possibilities. He sees biochar

Bio-char Projects

Currently (January 2007) we conduct experiments to evaluate the effects of bio-char on nutrient adsorption, nutrient leaching, water percolation, soil water availability and carbon cycling as well as the stability and mobility of bio-char itself with research in our Ithaca lab, in Colombia, Brazil, Zambia and Kenya.

Here is a set of images about our charcoal making project this weekend. It is a smothered pit method, first time for myself . We did open the lower end of the pit after 5 hours and take out about 40 gallons , then we put the unburned wood back in and recovered. We will be looking at it again in about 18 hours.
