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.
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.
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
Our tech can reach millions of landowners in the tropics to reach gigatonne scale of carbon removal.
The income from carbon credits finances biochar production and carbon removal that would otherwise not have taken place.
We are putting carbon finance directly into regions worst affected by climate change.
Biochar when applied to soils removes carbon from the atmosphere permanently (1000+ years).
