Genesis Biochar is Superior
1st Advantage: Pyrolysis vs Gasification
Genesis Industries utilizes a true pyrolysis process to make our biochar (see pic below). Using pyrolysis is preferable to gasification machines because burning the biomass using gasification deteriorates the honeycomb structure that is created during pyrolysis on biomass feedstocks. The reason to maintain the honeycomb structure at a microscopic level is that biochar acts as a “house” for symbiotic beneficial microbes, bacteria, and better storage of nutrients. If this house structure is weakened or destroyed during the gasification process, then it becomes less effective. Pyrolysis is also a cleaner, more efficient method of manufacturing biochar. Gasification is designed to make energy first and then sell the leftovers. Pyrolysis processes vary, but we’ve designed our machine to make the best biochar first and energy second.
2nd Advantage: Inoculated Biochar vs Biochar
Our biochar is a specially inoculated formula for rapid positive crop results. Our biochar is delivered inoculated with pro-biotic microbes, nutrients. However customers can purchase our biochar and inoculate it themselves. Biochar applied without this inoculation or without additional applications of nutrients will suck up nutrients from the soil for period of time and initially reduce crop yields. At some point, the house or structure of the char becomes saturated with nutrients and beneficial pro-biotic microbes that begin to thrive in this carbon-rich environment and work their magic to increase crop yields. This is why Genesis inoculates the biochar right out the gate to get the most beneficial results on the first crop to which it is applied. Our initial test results are superior when considering rapid crop growth rates, long-term soil fertility and cost effectiveness.
3rd Advantage: Non-Toxic vs Toxic Biochar
Genesis Biochar utilizes clean feedstocks that are not loaded with toxic materials. Several other suppliers are generating biochar from “biosolids” which is a fancy name for municipal waste from human sewage or worse. If you are ordering biochar from foreign countries it is possible that its source is toxic trash and made from an inferior process such as gasification and loaded with toxins. Although material like human sewage is high in nutrients, it also includes a vast array of toxic chemicals. Our machines run on a wide array of all natural feedstock.

4th Advantage: Made in the USA
This advantage not only cuts down on all the unknown variables of how the char was made, what it was made from and how much carbon was used to deliver that biochar to you, but we are in the act of rebuilding jobs in America. Our intent is to manufacture many smaller machines to produce locally made biochar, which would increase revenues locally and reduce the carbon footprint of this amazing soil amendment.
