Biochar is known as a fine-grained product that is designed by organic wastes. Its manufacturing is a great way to sequester carbon that is long term capture of carbon. Greenhouse gases are leading cause to global warming. The property of biochar to sequester carbon is a great way to deal with this crisis.
Biochar Market Dynamics
This section deals with understanding the market drivers, advantages, opportunities, restraints and challenges. All of this is discussed in detail as below:
- Burgeoning Usage for various Applications
Its growing popularity primarily drives biochar sales as a charcoal substitute and expanding utility in power generation. Biochar sales continue to be boosted by non-energy applications. Biochar's carbon sequestration and water retention properties are driving demand in agriculture. Biochar's industrial applications are likely to grow as government agencies continue to research in this area. The market is growing due to rising demand for biochar in electricity generation, rising adoption of gasification systems, and rising biochar sales in agriculture.
- Growing Demand for Environment-Friendly Products
The burning of fossil fuels and the decomposition of biomass release an excessive amount of carbon dioxide into the atmosphere, rising carbon levels in the atmosphere. However, applying biochar to these soils can help reduce carbon dioxide emissions because biochar can store up to 50% of carbon from its feedstock. Biochar is a very stable material. This significantly reduces carbon dioxide emissions from organic decomposition. It's also important for regulating methane and nitrogen dioxide emissions from the soil. The use of biochar on the soil can help to reduce pollution offsite. It improves the soil's retention of nutrients like phosphorus and nitrogen. This reduces soil nutrient leaching into groundwater and helps to protect nutrients from erosion due to surface water flow.
Furthermore, the rising environmental awareness and lower raw material costs will further propel the growth rate of biochar market. Additionally, the expansion of the various end-use industries is projected to bolster the market's growth.
- Development of Biochar
Furthermore, growing interest in developing biochar into novel products based on its unique chemical properties by the market players extend profitable opportunities to the market players. For instance, it can be used to replace activated carbon, which is commonly used in wastewater treatment facilities to absorb contaminants and reduce odors.
- Advancements in Gasification Biochar Systems
Additionally, the recent advancements in gasification biochar systems will further expand the biochar market's future growth and is estimated to generate various market opportunities over the forecast period of 2022 to 2029.
- High Costs of Biochar
On the other hand, biochar production is an expensive process that necessitates a variety of sophisticated and expensive pyrolysis equipment. Furthermore, because it requires an oxygen-free atmosphere maintained at a specific temperature, the pyrolysis gas obtained during biochar production is costly to store and transport. This makes it difficult for manufacturers with limited investment capital to enter the biochar market.
- Technological Barriers
Also, the technological barriers across the distant regions will prove to be a demerit for the biochar market. Consequently, this factor will challenge the biochar market growth rate.
Moreover, the absence of knowledge concerning the advantages of the product is estimated to restrict the market growth.
