tBJ:The use of biochar as building material

Biochar bricks and concrete. First tests to produce biochar bricks using cement, lime or mud as a binder are very promising. With wet bulk densities under 1.2 g/cm3 and partly under 1 g/cm3 and a compressive strengths around 20 N/mm2, it would seem that a very exciting, highly functional lightweight material will soon be making its appearance.

BIOCHAR USE IN BUILDING MATERIALS

The Ithaka Institute, known for its expertise in biochar, has been trialling the use of biochar in plaster. The building of the Ithaka Institute in Switzerland was the first to be restored using biochar plaster. They recommend a biochar-mud mixture to the ratio 50% biochar, 30% sand and 20% clay.

Biochar as a Building Material Natural Building Blog

May 24, 2019  Tests to produce biochar bricks using cement, lime or mud as a binder are very promising. Sand can be completely replaced by biochar reducing the weight of the material by factor 5, allowing the bricks to actually float in water. With al of these positive qualities I predict that biochar will find increasing uses as a building material.
