LuciaStove Biochar Spectrographs

Luciastove Biochar Spectrographs

Feed stocks, as seen in the these spectrographs, are the single most important variable for determining biochar quality. Feed stocks determine structure and base nutrient level (pre inoculation). Feedstocks also determine gas production rates so critical for reliable/consistent cooking…and they are only one of over 40 variables we tune our stoves for to meet local needs. These spectrographs and SEM images are all of biochars produced with a standard LuciaStove with baseline tuning
