Evergreen BioCarbon

This proprietary media has been proven to reduce metals in stormwater runoff by 90%. It is also our most cost effective biofiltration option for our Industrial facilities in CA. #filter #stormwater #reduce #pollutants #reduce #metals #biocarban #biochar #evergreenbiocarbon #absorptive #infiltration #California #IGP

Evergreen BioCarbon

Activated Biochar Filtration Media

Evergreen BioCarbon, also called Activated Biochar, is produced from clean, yellow pine biomass from the southeastern US and is composed of more than 80% fixed carbon. BioCarbon is very porous with abundant internal surface area and high adsorption capacity. BioCarbon has undetectable amounts of live microorganisms due to production temperatures of >800° C. Evergreen BioCarbon is also a USDA Certified Biobased Product, and it is derived from plant biomass that could otherwise be wasted in a landfill. BioCarbon also benefits the environment by reducing and sequestering greenhouse gasses.

Evergreen BioCarbon can be used as a sorbent for industrial contaminants or a soil amendment by municipalities, landscapers, and homeowners. As an agricultural amendment or remediation media, it can provide benefits to the soil for over 100 years as it resists decay. Since 2014, Evergreen BioCarbon has also been used as a biofiltration media and microbial substrate and sorbent in National Pollutant Discharge Elimination System (NPDES) permitted wastewater treatment facilities.

Potential Benefits of Evergreen BioCarbon:
  • High adsorption capacity
  • High carbon content
  • Long half-life (100s of years)
  • High water-holding capacity
  • High nutrient retention capacity
  • High pesticide retention capacity
  • Improvement of soil quality and water retention
  • Increased beneficial microbes by providing substrate and refugia
  • Increased Cation Exchange Capacity (CEC)
  • Can enhance crop growth with fewer agronomic inputs
Evergreen BioCarbon Takes Up and Adsorbs the Following Pollutants::
  • Nutrients (can be designed with denitrification in mind)
  • Heavy & Dissolved Metals
  • Oxygen Consuming Compounds (BOD/COD)
  • Hydrocarbons
  • Bacteria
  • High pesticide retention capacity
  • Organic Acids
  • Pesticides
  • Volatile Organics
  • Total Suspended Solids (TSS)
Biochar filters and breaks down even more with microbial (bacteria, fungi, algae, and protozoans) additives to the media in a balanced consortium based on pollutants of concern and site specifics.
