Kon-Tiki Kiln

Finger Lakes Biochar

the official source for Kon-Tiki kilns in the USA

Advantages of the Kon-Tiki:

 Allows you to easily and cleanly carbonize unloved and/or unwieldy biomass including yard debris, vine & orchard prunings, pomace, etc.
  • Can be safely quenched from the bottom up with the ability to utilize the highly alkaline quench water for different purposes
  • Generates significant heat which can be used for cooking, boiling, distilling and more
  • Creates significant amounts of biochar quickly : 7 cubic feet in under 2 hours for most types of biomass
  • Quick payback period: many commercial biochars sell for $30 – $50 per cubic foot so the Kon-Tiki can pay for itself in less than a week!
  • Off-set your personal or farm carbon footprint !
