Become A Carbon Farmer
Improve your soil health, take climate action and get paid carbon finance. It’s a win for you and a win for the planet.
If you have agricultural plant waste such as tea pruning’s, cinnamon sticks, rubber wood or fast growing woody biomass like bamboo, we want to hear from you. We will provide you with the tools, technology & training for you to produce biochar and generate carbon credits.
As a farmer or landowner, you are a steward of the land and know how important soil health is.
As a human, you have an opportunity to be part of a solution that tackles climate change.
We have developed a methodology to audit the production and application of biochar to the soil. This generates scientifically approved carbon credits allowing you to become a carbon farmer, remove CO2 and get paid.
When producing and applying biochar to your soils, CO2 is permanently removed from the atmosphere. Check your eligibility to become a carbon famer by clicking the link and answering a few questions. It takes 2 minutes!
We are opening our EBC methodology to landowners, stewards and biochar producers who operate in the tropics. If you have agricultural plant waste such as cinnamon sticks, rubber wood or fast growing woody biomass like bamboo, we want to hear from you. We will provide you with the tools, technology and training for you to generate carbon credits.
Biochar is a carbon rich material similar to charcoal which is made by heating biomass with limited oxygen through a process called pyrolysis.
The carbon in biochar resists degradation and can remain in soils for thousands of years. It’s found in soils throughout the world as a result of forest fires or historic soil management practices. It is an indigenous practice which has been found in the Amazon dating back to over 2,000 years ago. Known as terra preta, or black earth in Portuguese.
Biochar’s unique properties, porous structure and alkaline pH means it is well suited as a soil supplement. The application of biochar has been proven in multiple cases to increase crop yields, improve the water holding capacity of soils thus increasing resistance to drought and heavy rainfalls. This promotes the growth of soil microorganisms and can reduce nitrate leaching.
You need a sustainable source of biomass and pyrolysis equipment. We recommend starting with the Kontiki kiln. It’s easy to build, straightforward to operate and doesn’t cost the Earth. We will send you the design, just get in touch!
- 250 tonnes of sustainably sourced biomass
- Pyrolysis Kiln
- Compost for mixing with the biochar
- Land for applying the biochar compost mix
- Willingness to be the change you want to see in the world
This depends on your local situation, but it ranges between 150-300 USD / tonne of biochar. In order to calculate it we need to understand the financial feasibility of your project with and without carbon finance. Additionality is a key factor in selling any carbon credit. This means that the carbon finance has to be necessary to make your project commercially viable.
We are a passionate, innovative, realists with a whole heap of global experience. Our business is founded on the principles of win-win relationships and we operate at the forefront of the growing carbon market.
