im working on trying to make biochar from mahogany wood, i am working in a company that has just started to harvest around 5000 cubic meter of mahogany and would like to make good use of the left over branches which is a waste here in most cases.

please if you know any best practice or better use of these valuable timber.

Andrew,

I did a quick google search and found a paper that may help, as attached. I didn't read it, just scanned and saw mahogany biochar was made and researched. 

Kind regards,

Nando

Nando (who it is good to hear from again; and thanks for the forwarding),  cc List and Andrew

I also have only skimmed the article.  The most interesting part to me was a statement (I think) of favorable economics - which is covered only in the Supplemental.  Going to the publisher’s site seems to say I can get to that supplemental by clicking a button in the article itself.  But I can’t find such a button.  Can you  Nando (or anyone) also forward the supplemental information for the paper (which incidentally looks well done - as there are not so many with half a dozen different source materials being compared.
If anyone can recommend other papers with biochar cost analyses/comparisons,  I would love to know about them also.

Ron
