Integrating with Puro.earth: Easily Access High-Quality Carbon Credits

Oct 31, 2023

We’re excited to announce the release of a two-way bridge to carbon removal standard Puro.earth.

By creating the first bridge that integrates with the Puro Connect API, Toucan has enabled the instant settlement of engineered carbon removal credits on-chain, which accelerates the speed for carbon retirements. Project developers can access new demand sources, while market participants can move beyond over-the-counter trades.

Why Biochar?

Biochar is emerging as an important, multi-benefit solution for removing carbon dioxide from the atmosphere. In addition to increasing crop yields and mitigating climate change, biochar is a net-negative product that removes more carbon than its production emits.

Biochar is obtained from heating biomass (wood, leaves, straw, or other biosolids) at high temperatures without oxygen. This process, known as pyrolysis, concentrates carbon in a form that is very resistant to biological decomposition.

The market for biochar is growing robustly, and its versatility makes it an increasingly desirable option for carbon removal. Partnering with Puro.earth enables us to offer these high-value biochar credits in the form of TCO2s, opening the door for buyers that are looking for impactful and versatile carbon credit options.
