ECOCHAR - is a revolutionary Bio-Char made from a wide range of sustainable recycled Farm Waste Materials, such as Manures of all types, Forages. It is also derived from other sources such as Distiller Grains and By-Products from Animal Processing, Municipal Waste, Mushroom Growers, Nut Shells and Rice Hulls, etc. One big advantage of our ECOCHAR over other types of Bio-Char, like that made of wood is the inherent high nutrient content. ECOCHAR is applied where needed for specific applications, mainly based on soil samples and plant analyses.

Soil Energizer - Contains not only the nutrients and minerals required for healthy soil, but also a high microbial content to increase biological activity. In addition, Soil Energizer is used to encapsulate containment metals from the soil. With the most plant growth ingredients, Soil Energizer is is the best way to give your plants an advantage from the start. Ingredients are designed to improve and promote the biological activity of any soil to a level that optimizes the function and fertility of the soil, which in turn helps insure that plants grown in the soil have the best opportunity for lush, vibrant, healthy growth and for optional yields and best quality. Designed to work with whatever soil situation you may encounter, which is why we say, “Ours makes them better”.

Roots 'N' Shoots & More - For use during initial planting, providing what plants require for rapid growth of stems and roots, resulting in bigger, healthier plants. Provides a baseline of specialized nutrients required by plants during the early growth phase prior to the initiation of flowering. This is also for plants that do not produce flowers and/or fruits, such as leafy greens and root vegetables. This grade can continue to be used up to harvest.

Flowers - Fruits & More - For use when plants are nearing the flowering/fruiting stage, this provides what is needed to produce large, healthy blooms and fruits.

Vital Force / Ecochar Soil Boosters

earth icon ECOCHAR


Gasification is a thermal process, reacting carbon-based fuels in an oxygen starved environment at typical temperature ranges from 1000 to 1500 degrees F.

The syngas produced in the gasifier is then combusted in a thermal oxidizer converting CO to CO2.

The products of gasification is heat, steam, and/or electricity and biochar. A variety of biomass and other fuels may be used.

  • EARTHCARE offers a Gasification Processing System to produce ECOCHAR. Our Gasifier System processes all types of manures, by-products from animal and food processing plants and all types of vegetation such as wood, switch grass, cord fodder, etc. to produce various grades of Biochar (from wood & vegetation by-products) and ECOCHAR (from manure & food by-products). ECOCHAR is the carbon-rich product obtained when biomass is heated in a closed container, in either an oxygen-starved or oxygen-free environment.
  • Gasification produces a material that contains the mineral ash from the feedstock as well as the fixed carbon - which will be in the form of a carbon char. The carbon in this char is transformed into a very absorbent material that has charged particles which attract nutrients and moisture.
  • We include a BIO-FILTER in our Gas Exhaust System that greatly reduces the emissions to a very low PPM and eliminates the odor of any exhaust from the gases.
  • Available on request are Steam Turbine Generator Systems & ORC Hot Water Generator Systems.
  • Biomass materials contain carbon in two forms - fixed carbon and volatile matter. The carbon in the volatile matte is reacted in the process, while the fixed carbon is left behind in the ECOCHAR. Due to the high temperatures and retention time, ECOCHAR is free from pathogens, E-coli, growth hormones, and residues from medications.
  • The resulting product has a multitude of applications due to the characteristics of the carbon along with the nutrients in the char - possible uses include soil amendment, heavy metal remediation, animal feed supplement, water purification, eliminate odor, reduce ammonia & moisture in poultry houses and many others.
  • Purified water and a healthier soil produce healthier plants and healthier nutrition for human consumption. This enhances the health of all human beings as well as all animals and birds.
  • Gasification Produces Heat, Steam, and/or Electricity from a Variety of Biomass and Other Fuels

    Gasifier Layout Earthcare, LLC. addresses waste disposal and facility energy needs, allowing business owners to concentrate on their core business expertise. Earthcare's gasification systems can produce heat, steam and/or electricity as desired, as well as EcoChar (Earthcare's trademarked biochar product), and are designed to fit the host site's needs. Depending on the application, a portion of the thermal energy may also be used to dry moisture-laden products (waste grain vegetable residue, high-moisture manures, etc.), making them easier and less costly to transport or use for fuel. Our gasifiers are extremely versatile, able to operate using a variety of different fuels, while remaining a carbon negative solution for your business.

    Earthcare Projects:
    Georgia Ethanol Plant, MSW Organic Waste
    Cow Manure Management, Ohio
    Swine Manure Project, Netherlands
    Swine & Poultry Manure Project, Indiana

    Earthcare's gasification system is well suited to the following fuels:

  • Forest Management Wastes and Urban Green Waste
  • Crops and Crop Residues - corn stover
  • Wastewater Treatment Plant Biosolids
  • Municipal Waste, Sorted and Unsorted
  • Wood and Construction Waste
  • Food Processing By-Products
  • Wet and Dried Distiller Grain
  • Poultry, dairy, and hog manure
  • EcoChar's characteristics vary with different fuels. Benefits of EcoChar include:

  • Increased nutrient infiltration, moisture retention, and microbial activity
  • Absorption of nutrients, heavy metals and hydrocarbons using the enormous surface area of EcoChar
  • Absorption of moisture, ammonia, and odors in livestock applications
  • Increased short-term soil organic carbon (1-5 years), as well as long-term soil organic carbon (100s of years)
