Biochar protects the climate sustainably
Biochar converts CO2 absorbed by plants into carbon and preserves it. For example, branches or other biomass can no longer rot and release their CO2 into the atmosphere. This process represents one of the few CO2 sinks, because 1 kg of biochar permanently removes approx. 2.5 kg of CO2 from the atmosphere – after deduction of all emissions for production, transport, etc.
ÜThrough our products, CO2 in the form of carbon is brought into the soil – there it performs a regenerative function. The increased nutrient efficiency provided by the biochar also means that less fertilizer needs to be used. This also has a positive effect on the CO2 footprint.
Biochar creates healthy and living soils
Incorporated into the soil, biochar is also a catalyst for healthy soils and remains there for many hundreds to thousands of years. It has a large inner and outer surface area and can thus absorb large amounts of water and nutrients, which it releases to plants as needed. This storage capacity reduces the leaching of fertilizer into the groundwater. Adding nutrients to the biochar prior to putting it into the soil, there is even no leaching.
In addition, microorganisms accumulate, which leads to higher soil activity and therefore to higher plant vitality.
We work in partnership
Our team consists of farmers, biochemists and entrepreneurs who all believe in biochar as a means to a more regenerative agriculture.
