The answer to growing need for soil fertility

EcoChar is the end-product of an innovative gasification technology, which converts organic by-products such as manure, into green energy and high valuable EcoChar.

EcoChar is a powerful soil improver that still contains the mineral ash and fixed carbon which offers great environmental advantages and economic value. The main uses of EcoChar:

EcoChar is valuable for improving stability in soil. EcoChar deposits the carbon and nutrients from the source material back into the ground. Due to the absorbent nature of the char, EcoChar will enrich the soil, but in a form that is not susceptible to nutrient leeching/run-off. 

EcoChar can hold more than its own weight of moisture. EcoChar is highly effective at moisture and ammonia reduction, leading to a more pleasant environment and healthier animals. In poultry houses, weight gain consistently increased due to reduced ammonia and moisture content. An ammonia reduction of 30% was observed when using char in horse stalls. 

EcoChar has a high content of P, K, Ca en Mg.

The ability of EcoChar to filter and absorb fine particulate makes it perfect for use in removing unwanted contaminants from water sources.

Research shows that the amount of different metals captured by EcoChar is higher than by an activated carbon product.

Activated carbon is an essential part of most odor filtration devices. EcoChar has been proven to be effective in odor reduction, and is viable as a filter medium. For example, EcoChar proves to be effective in the cleaning out of small pet cages such as guinea pig and rabbit. After the addition of EcoChar to their litter, the need for cleaning was reduced from every two days, to every two weeks.
