Welcome to Australian Hardwood Charcoal Products

Biochar is another name for activated charcoal but exclusively using plant matter as the raw material. Uses for
Biochar are many.
Examples of turning ‘waste’ into a resource are also many. Elimination of waste from agricultural sources such
as sugarcane, hemp, cotton trash, nut seed waste, sawdust and discarded clothing are just some. Once
biochar is produced from the waste it can be incorporated into poor soils to improve that soils characteristics.
Activated charcoal has a water holding capacity. This can be taken advantage of by soaking it prior to
application to soil. In times of heavy rain it can retain some of that water and easily give it up for the plant
roots as the soil dries out.
