摘要
(US20170040083) An end-to-end system/process for producing advantageous end products from a raw biomass feedstock is provided.  The process includes steps for enhancing biomaterial feedstock, biochar generation and end-product fabrication.  The method steps may be employed in selecting, treating and handling biomass materials and their additive inputs to tailor their end performance.  Each operative step in the process may be employed to enhance the overall effectiveness of biochar generation and use.  Charring furnace design and operational parameters are provided that generate desirable biochar material for various applications, including specifically fabrication of ultra-capacitor electrodes and electric battery components.

主权利要求
(US20170040083) 1. A method for generating biochar material, comprising: a. selecting plant material for use in generating biochar based on predetermined criteria;   b. mechanical conversion of the selected plant material to a pre-shaped condition;   c. charring the mechanically converted plant material in a furnace to generate biochar material; and   d. fabricating at least one end-product from the biochar material. 2. The method according to claim 1, wherein the plant material is selected at least in part based on at least one of plant species, soil characteristics and mineral content. 3. The method according to claim 1, further comprising processing steps related to selection of the plant material that include: a. harvesting of plants;   b. washing of the harvested plants to remove soluble minerals therefrom. 4. The method according to claim 3, wherein the washing of the harvested plants includes at least one of allowing the harvested to lay fallow so as to be exposed to rain conditions, and manual washing of the harvested plants. 5. The method according to claim 1, wherein the mechanical conversion is undertaken in an extruder or pelletizer. 6. The method according to claim 1, wherein conditions associated with the mechanical conversion are sufficient to allow constituent components associated with the selected plant material to melt, reform and react to form the pre-shaped condition. 7. The method according to claim 1, wherein charring of the selected plant material is undertaken in a charring furnace that includes a heat source. 8. The method according to claim 5, wherein the heat source is selected from the group consisting of electrical heating, microwave heating, induction heating, hydrocarbon fuel heating, heating from furnace-resident biomaterial-generated off-gas, and combinations thereof. 9. The method according to claim 1, wherein the fabrication of at least one end-product includes a pre-shaping step. 10. The method according to claim 1, wherein the end-product is selected from an ultra-high capacitor and a battery component. 11. The method according to claim 1, wherein fabrication of the end-product is net-shaped to facilitate subsequent use or assembly.
