"Biochar Now has commissioned comprehensive third-party testing for its Biochar product. Due to its cation exchange capability, Biochar removal results are often exceptional."

Metals


Biochar Now has commissioned comprehensive third-party tests for our product. Below is a table of some heavy metals including some that are highly toxic. Due to its cation exchange ability, the results of removing the heavy metals are exceptional.

It is important to note that toxic substances are attracted and bind to the walls of the BioChar, and are locked in a molecular capsule  And will not be released  By themselves  so  That the roots of the plants will not absorb the toxins associated with the capsule.

Nutrients


Nutrients are an important adsorption category for Biochar Now. Sometimes, the data are important for the availability of nutrients (e.g. for plants) and sometimes they are important for the removal of nutrients (e.g. water  Cloudy in the field,  And water reservoirs). In both cases Biochar Now Biochar  The product is excellent. As a note:  By the way, you should know that you can recover the  "The socks with  The patented "pores"  of  BioChar Now when they  Loaded with nutrients, and can be restored and used  In gardens, and in agricultural fields, to improve plant growth.

Solids


When loading  Bio-char  In a unique sock with  Pores and laid in a lake, pond, or polluted river, with nutrients, the natural currents will flow the water through the Biochar sock. Solids will be physically filtered due to its external molecular shape  Of Biochar. (See Figure 3). The physical removal of algae blooms (turbidity) and solids is very effective.


It is important to know that toxic substances are attracted and bind to the walls of the Biochar, they are considered as additives  Are fixed in a capsule and will not be released that way,  Plant roots will not absorb the associated toxins.

Water Adsorption 


Water adsorption is a very important feature of Biochar due to the drought conditions caused due to climate change. Our BioChar holds 5.6 times his weight in water and the water is always available to the roots. Evaporation is negligible due to the long and narrow pores with very small openings at the edges as can be seen in Figure 3 above.


Water holding capacity = 5.6 x the weight of the BioChar
