KTV Organic Biochar is only produced from biomass such as wood waste, crop residue and tree prunings. KTV SmartChar has been developed specifically for environmental use and offers the following benefits:
- A highly effective chemical and oil adsorber that reduces the impact of oil and chemical spills that can occur in industrial, agricultural and domestic settings.
- A highly powerful carbon capture storage system, preventing CO2 from entering the atmosphere by capturing approximately 50% of the carbon from biomass pyrolisis.
KTV's SmartChar is an ideal treatment for waste water in agriculture or industry. Once waste water has been passed through KTV's SmartChar, it can be recycled or discharged. Smartchar accelerates, prolongs and enhances the Biological Oxygen Demand activity from salts through to raw sewage and also improves Chemical Oxygen Demand and removes phenols.
Chemical and Oil Cleanup
The adsorbent properties of KTV's SmartChar break down high hydrocarbon sheen to make it less "sticky" and enable easier removal from oil booms. Our SmartChar is applied or dropped from a height over the slick and the booms are then able to easily pull in the oil. According to the EU funded Kill Spill project biochar technologies are more effective than the current enzyme based technologies used in oil cleanup.
