So hair is plentiful, and filled with nutrients.
Takes a long time to break down, is often contaminated with chemicals.
A retort filled with air will allow gasses to circulate pretty ready,and the char should be very finely textured,without any need to grind it.
So my question is, will the process of pyrolysis burn off the impurities introduced by hair care products?
