Traditional Carbon Cycle

Carbon surrounds us everywhere: in nature, it remains in continuous circulation. Carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions are often discussed in a negative tone, but it should be remembered that carbon itself is not the problem.

The carbon cycle becomes problematic when its balance in nature is disturbed. This happens, for example, when carbon from the soil is released into the atmosphere by human activities.

Benefits of Biochar

Biochar can reduce CO2 emissions that are released into the atmosphere. Biochar is produced in a process called pyrolysis. During the process, biomass is heated to a temperature higher than 350°C. The process is anoxic, which means that the carbon does not burn or turn into CO2. Instead, the carbon remains in the biochar and is not released into the atmosphere.

Biochar has an extremely porous structure. This means that the material has a large surface area per each mass unit, like a sponge. The unique characteristics and benefits of biochar are based on this spongy, porous structure. Biochar can be produced from various biomass materials. The characteristics of biochar can be adjusted and refined according to its target application.
