Carbon Removal & Beyond

Tracking biochar production in the tropics to scale carbon removal and direct carbon finance to people and places who need it most.

Towards carbon removal and beyond

Scaling carbon removal while improving soils and agricultural practices, finding solutions that can lead to more resilient systems beyond carbon removal

Globally equitable solution

Our biochar projects in the tropics direct carbon finance to the parts of the planet where solis and people have been most affected by climate change.

Meaningful path to net-zero

Your company's carbon credit investment and path to net-zero finances meaningful climate action in the way that suits your company's value chain.

Scaling biochar in the tropics

We track biochar production in the tropics to unlock billions of carbon removal credits. Plants and trees sequester more CO2 in the tropics than anywhere else, thanks to its sunny, warm and humid climate. Accessing these large amounts of unutilised waste and fast-growing woody biomass is vital to scale biochar carbon removal, we transparently track the whole process with our digital MRV. Our technology is kiln and biomass agnostic, meaning we are able to scale projects at many different places in the tropics simultaneously. 

The tropics is also the part of the world affected most by climate change and the droughts, flooding and storms that follow. On top of that, soils here have largely degraded due to intense agriculture and high temperatures, leaving them with poor resilience to the current and future effects of climate change.

Carbon finance and biochar carbon removal practices can have the most positive impact here…

According to the IPPCs latest report, biochar is a proven carbon removal solution that will have significant impact in removing billions of tonnes of CO2 from the atmosphere.

Closing the loop through biochar carbon removal

Biochar is a nature based carbon removal technology, utilising nature’s own ability to sequester carbon through photosynthesis. Tropical forests and agriculture sequester the largest amounts of CO2 in the world thanks to its sunny, warm and humid climate. Tropical agriculture produces large amounts of ‘waste’ biomass and fast-growing crops like bamboo can be planted and harvested over and over – promoting healthy ecosystems and providing large amounts of biomass. When the waste or harvested biomass is turned into biochar, the sequestered carbon can be stored in the soil for 100-1,000 years

It's
Net-Negative

For every 1 tonne of biochar produced, we remove 2 tonnes of CO2 from the atmosphere.

It's
Scalable

Our tech can reach millions of landowners in the tropics to reach gigatonne scale of carbon removal.

It's
Additional

The income from carbon credits finances biochar production and carbon removal that would otherwise not have taken place.

It's
Equitable

We are putting carbon finance directly into regions worst affected by climate change.

It's
Permanent

Biochar when applied to soils removes carbon from the atmosphere permanently (1000+ years).

Planboo is creating EBC certified biochar

Carbon Removal

To keep the world within 1.5 degrees of global warming and to avoid global catastrophe – we now need to not only drastically reduce our emissions but also rapidly remove them too.

However, there is very little carbon removal today with less than 50,000 tonnes of CO2 removed in 2021. It’s estimated we need to remove 10% of Global GHG emissions by 2030, which is equal to 5 billion tonnes per year. Carbon removal needs to grow 100,000 times bigger. 

Planboo is a nature-based carbon removal company, using bamboo-the fastest growing plant in the world. Like all plants, through photosynthesis bamboo absorbs CO2 and releases oxygen into the atmosphere. Because it grows so fast, it’s carbon removal potential is huge. We develop projects in Sri Lanka with local partners and supply high quality and high integrity carbon removal credits for the carbon market.
