Our TerraPreta Biochar Prototype Reactor is ready to be operated, and our first task after have assembled it is to do a Temperature Behavior to understand how the flows of heat are present in the system and what are the range of temperature we are able to get in order to ensure that the pyrolysis reaction will be completed satisfactorily. Below you can see two 3D models printed in PLA filament (the white and gray models at the right of the first picture) and the prototype (at the left of the first picture and in the second picture), ready to be turned on.
