What is Biochar?
Biochar is a charcoal-like substance that’s made by burning organic material from agricultural and forestry wastes (also called biomass) in a controlled process called pyrolysis. Biochar is by far more efficient at converting carbon into a stable form and is cleaner than other forms of charcoal. Biochar’s chemical composition varies depending on the feedstocks used to make it and methods used to heat it.
Integrating Biochar Logically
Rapid advances in technologies in power generation with carbon capture, biochar production, conversion of CO2 to renewable fuel, energy storage and renewable energy is creating a major opportunity for countries to reduce their carbon emissions and grow their economies at the same time.
