Biochar production from agricultural biomass such as rushes can yield monetary benefits for farmers and has the potential to reduce emissions from slurry management.
As companies creep closer to their net zero target years, many have already begun purchasing carbon credits. The market for carbon credits is projected to grow 50-fold within a decade, from nearly $2 billion in 2022 to nearly $100 billion by 2030, and as much as $250 billion by 2050, according to Morgan Stanley.
Carbonfuture has signed an offtake agreement with Microsoft to supply biochar carbon removal (“BCR”) credits from the Exomad Green Concepción project, which transforms forestry waste into biochar.
A new study is assessing the permanence of biochar carbon removal in terms of locking away the CO2 from going back to the atmosphere.
Emissions from global food loss and waste is so large, that if its emissions were represented as a country, it would fall in third place behind China and the United States, according to the UN Environment program.
Reducing emissions remains the primary, most effective, and preferred response to climate change. But decarbonization alone could prove insufficient to reduce the residual “hard to abate” emissions that may persist in the medium term. Once decarbonization options have been expended, CDR could play a vital role in neutralizing residual emissions.
