Nov 16, 2023

Biochar is a charcoal-like substance produced by burning organic material from agricultural and forestry wastes (like wood chips, crop residues, or manure) under low-oxygen conditions.

This process, known as pyrolysis, cooks the organic matter at high temperatures which transforms it into a stable, carbon-rich solid.

The end product is a fine-grained, highly porous biochar that is similar to naturally occurring charcoal.

Just like charcoal, biochar is rich in carbon content but remains stable against decomposition for hundreds or even thousands of years.

This makes biochar an incredibly effective means of sequestering carbon long-term and removing CO2 from the atmosphere.
