The Future of Wood and Vegetative Debris Recycling

The mobile CARBONATOR is the most advanced, cost-effective and environment-friendly wood debris recycling systems ever built. The CARBONATOR 500 converts wood and other suitable biomass in to a high quality biochar at high throughput rates. Designed to accept trees, brush, stumps and other wood debris, as well as C&D, without grinding or chipping.
