Ash Handling and Utilization
- This page goes over the proper protocol for Ash handling, as well as various methods in which it can be used
- Need to determine composition of Biomass ash (and if it's fractions' differences are as significant as Coal Ash
Ash in General
- Agricultural Use (Assuming it is entirely extracted from the Charcoal in the Charcoal Washing process (as well as emissions capture) it should be nearly all of the non-(hydro)carbon elements/compounds from the plants/soil. THUS by returning it to the soil in the proper amounts you close this loop
