What is Biochar?
Recognized as a potential climate stabilizing tool for decades, biochar has been used by humans as a resource for millennia. The potential leverage this unique material can create is only beginning to be fully understood.
Biochar is listed directly as one of the top 100 climate stabilizing strategies In Paul Hawkin’s internationally recognized book Drawdown. If integrated into a number of the other 100 strategies (regenerative agriculture; conservation agriculture; clean cookstoves; composting) biochar could contribute to as much as 75 gigatons of carbon sequestration by 2050—a combined impact making it one of the urgent drawdown strategies most powerful tools.
