Certainly, depending on your pot size a mix of 30% biochar dug in around the roots of the plant is ideal. For hanging baskets use a 50% mix.
"THE TREES IN MY ORCHARD ARE OVER 30 YEARS OLD, CAN BIOCHAR HELP THEM?"
Yes it can, work in the biochar as deep as possible around the base of the tree. Depending on the tree 20L per square meter should be sufficient. Please remember most orchard trees have a short life span of only 35 years before they are replaced.
"HOW DOES BIOCHAR HELP SAVE WATER?"
In simple terms biochar acts like a hard shield around the root ball of the plant ensuring moisture is retained close to where it is needed by the plant. Even in the worst soil types, up to 50% of water can be saved.
"HOW OFTEN DO I NEED TO PUT BIOCHAR ON MY TREES?"
After initial treatment the biochar should be refreshed annually with approximately 50% more biochar. Again work in the biochar as deeply as possible.
"HOW CAN BIOCHAR HELP INCREASE MY YIELD?"
University studies and trials have clearly shown yields increasing by 140%. This is achieved by enabling the good nutrients required for growth to be kept within the root ball of the plant. Simply a healthy plant has more energy to produce more fruit.
"CAN I USE BIOCHAR ON MY TOMATOES OR OTHER HOMEGROWN VEGETABLES?"
Biochar is ideal for tomatoes with excellent results, but the benefits are equally good on all home grown vegetables.
"ARE THERE ANY NEGATIVE EFFECTS TO USING BIOCHAR?"
None that have been found in previous experiments or research.
"CAN I USE BIOCHAR ON ANY TYPE OF SOIL?"
Yes biochar is beneficial on all types of soils although results vary with individual crops much the way the gardening books advise.
"WHAT EMISSIONS DOES THE PLANT GIVE OFF?'
There are absolutely zero. The plant is totally emission free as per current EU requirements.
"IS THERE ANY RISK OF THE PLANT CATCHING FIRE USING SUCH HIGH TEMPERATURES?"
No. The plant is produced to HAZAP and ATTEX safety standards, in the event of fire or other technical issue the plant shuts down in about 30 seconds, with a secondary fail safe of Nitrogen flushing.
"HOW NOISY IS THE PLANT?"
Noise is limited to 75db at 1 meter distance from the plant.
"WHAT ARE THE ADVANTAGES OF HAVING A BIOMASS PLANT?"
There are many advantages, the primary is waste recycling in order to produce Green Energy 24hours a day, 7 days a week.
"ARE THERE ANY OTHER BIOMASS PLANTS IN CYPRUS?"
Of this type and advanced technology there is nothing in Cyprus.
"WHAT MAKES YOUR BIOMASS PLANT SO UNIQUE?"
The plant is designed with the environment in mind. The cleaning system enables us to produce gas that is cleaner than that of the oil industry for example. Additionally, the plant is designed specifically for the Cyprus environment and the operating areas.
