Usage of biochar in bio-fillers has proven to reduce weight while offering a cost competitive solution across industries. Polymers utilizing biochar have shown to increase strength, additionally improving high temperature performance. Biochar utilization also stops the growth of molds or mildews. The odor control characteristics of biochar are not lost during the impregnation of polymers and can actually reduce odors long after the molding process has completed.
Because biochar is an organic based filler it’s now possible to add a large percentage of organic material to your polymers and decrease your environmental impact. Since biochar is a renewable resource you can effectively reduce your dependence on oil-based consumption. Biochar also reduces greenhouse gases and sequesters carbon.
