OBIO - Feedchar
  •  Improved digestion

Farm animals eat large volumes of feed every day, which often can lead to digestal problems and diarrhea. Biochar helps the animals regulate gut digestion and results in more solid manure. This again improves animal welfare and provide calmer animals.

  • Improved fertilizer

Biochar is not broken down as it passes through the animal's digestive system. The char increase value of the fertilizer, as it charges with nutrients and decrease loss through the digestion.

  • Methane reduction

There are several studies indicating that biochar may reduce the methane emissions from cows, sheep, and goats. This is not yet scientifically proven, but scientists are working thoroughly with the hypothesis. 

 

How to use OBIO Feedchar

  • Self-regulation. 
    Feedchar is applicable for all farm animals. Use an own feed tray for feedchar and animals will self-regulate their digestion through intake. This works especially well for calves, lambs and baby goats. 
  • Activity material.
    Feedchar is efficient as a activity- and investigation material for the animals. Add in bedding or spread a small amount daily. Especially pigs love the biochar and experiments show reducion of tail biting.
  • Bedding material.
    Add in bedding to decrease to improve the production environment and increase the value of the tallow. Use 5-10% feedchar of the material added in the pen. 
  • Use of biochar in animal feeding

Obio - urban

Biochar help cities improve planth growth in dense areas and reduce urban floods. In drought periods, biochar provide trees and green infrastructure with water stored in the structure of the biochar. Biochar helps cities reach their goals towards climate neutrality with its high content of carbon and storage stability. 

 

 

How to use OBIO Urban

  • Planting trees with biochar
City garderner Björn Embren has developed the "Stockholm method" for estbalishing trees with a mix of soil and biochar. The soil developed guarantees for root development in dense city streets with intense traffic. Increased growth and survival are some of the benefits, as well as the climate action proved by using biochar.
Planting urban trees with biochar

  • Climate positive concrete
Oplandske has developed the world's first climate positive concrete, Biocrete, together with ConForm AS, Snøhetta AS, Skanska AS, Betong Øst AS, NTNU, Norsk Biokullnettverk. Sidestreams of carbon from the building sites are pyrolised and the biochar is added to the concrete material.  Biocrete satisfy the standards of strenght and functionality similar to traditional concrete.
