04 why biochar?
Biochar is a stable form of carbon for over a thousand years, created by pyrolysis of biomass. Through this process, biochar has gained a big internal surface area. Therefore, biochar stores nutrients and water really well, besides providing a habitat for microorganisms. Because of these characteristics, Dutch Carboneers uses biochar as soil enhancer for arid and depleted soils. The combination of being a permanent carbon sink and a soil enhancer makes biochar an absolute winner in climate change mitigation.
