Cedric BRIENS, Franco Berruti, Lorenzo Ferrante: Method for Separating Biochar from Wood Ash. Victoria Donnelly, February 24, 2011: US20110042277-A1

Wood ash residues are a complex ternary mixture of small stones, biochar particles and ash. The present application shows how a combination of physical separation processes can be applied to the efficient extraction of a biochar-rich fraction. Two different techniques were tested: segregation and el ...
