“1 tonne biochar can trap 2.0-2.6 tonnes of CO2

It is well-established that the concrete industry and use of cement is one of the most emission-intensive industrial processes on Earth. Concrete is the most widely used human-made material on the planet shaping most of the built environment; however, it also has an immense carbon footprint.

As excessive anthropogenic carbon (CO2) emissions threaten ecosystems as the main driver of the current climate crisis, many nations have set ambitious goals to reduce greenhouse gas emissions by at least 55% by 2030.

In order to meet carbon neutrality targets, carbon capture, utilization, and storage technologies should be developed. According to the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change, biochar is both a safe and promising solution to facilitate carbon neutrality.
