Global Biochar Market Rising at $585.0 Mn in 2020


Deerfield Beach, FL -- (SBWIRE) -- 10/05/2017 -- According to the report, the global biochar market was valued at approximately USD 260.0 million in 2014 and is expected to reach approximately USD 585.0 million by 2020, growing at a CAGR of around 14.5% between 2015 and 2020. In terms of volume, global biochar market stood at 100-kilotons in 2014. Zion Market Research has published a new report titled "Biochar (Pyrolysis, Gasification, Hydrothermal and Others Technology) Market for Agriculture, Water & Waste Water Treatment, and Other Applications: Global Industry Perspective, Comprehensive Analysis, and Forecast, 2014 – 2020"

Biochar is a charred carbon charcoal-like product derived from biomass that can enhance soils quality, sequester carbon. Biochar has been produced under conditions that optimize properties useful in agriculture, such as low amounts of residual resins and high surface area per unit of volume. There are some thermochemical technologies such as pyrolysis, gasification and hydrothermal conversion to produce biochar. Biochar is mainly used to improve soil quality by increasing soil pH as well as its moisture holding capacity. Biochar also has a tendency to filter and retain nutrients from percolating soil water.
