About Biochar

What is Biochar?

Biochar is a charcoal-like product made by heating any form of organic matter (biomass) in a controlled process with limited oxygen, called pyrolysis. This product is called biochar when it is used as a soil amendment, or for other uses that store the carbon in a durable form.

Through the use of these technologies, we can capture, utilise and store carbon (CCUS) for the long term (centuries to millennia), reduce waste, produce clean and renewable bioenergy, and remove CO² from the atmosphere.

How is Biochar Produced and What does it Produce?

Sustainable biochar production is a powerful and simple tool that can:

1) Produce products that allows carbon capture and storage 

2) Reduces agricultural waste

3) Produces clean renewable energy

4) Removes CO² from the atmosphere

Biochar has proven to improve the quality of soil and yield in agricultural and horticultural farming. It is widely used as a feed additive for animal health, can be used in construction materials such as concrete or asphalt,  as well as cleansing of air and water, it helps to regulate humidity, absorb toxins and fosters beneficial microbial life.

It is a highly valuable resource thats broad application can make negative emissions possible and sequester carbon for generations to come.

Biochar is an essential part of the next industrial revolution, creating a more sustainable future and posting for greater economic prosperity, increase job opportunities and continued quality of life for humanity.
