Biochar Uses in Building and Water Treatment

Biochar, a charcoal made out of burning woodstock or other feed material (rather than coal) is a relatively low-cost material that has several uses. The main use of soil remediation is not as economically viable as is generally promoted. However, for water treatment, and as a use in biochar-clay plasters, it has very promising results.

Biochar Plasters

Biochar can effectively insulate from heat, noise, and electromagnetic radiation, as well as regulate/control humidity. Uses for the latter include uses in viniculture storage.
