In a groundbreaking initiative to enhance sustainability and combat climate change, residents and community leaders in the City of Logan are embracing the production of biochar, a carbon-rich material derived from sludge.

Biochar's incorporation into soil enhances its fertility and water retention capabilities. Furthermore, biochar acts as a carbon sink, sequestering carbon from the atmosphere and mitigating the city's carbon footprint. Residents are encouraged to use biochar in their gardens, promoting sustainable urban agriculture practices.

We furnished conveyor systems to facilitate the feeding of material into the biochar pyrolysis machine and to transport the output from the machine to the stockpiles. Given the high temperature of the material exiting the pyrolysis machine, specialized equipment such as high-temperature liners and explosion-proof conveyors were essential. The success of the initial project phase prompted Logan to enlist SPIRAC's services for additional equipment in the subsequent stage, aimed at scaling up biochar production.

As the City of Logan embraces biochar production, it sets an inspiring example for urban communities seeking sustainable solutions to waste management and environmental conservation. The biochar revolution demonstrates the power of community engagement and innovation in creating a greener, more sustainable future.
