So, what is biochar?
According to the International Biochar Initiative,
Biochar is a solid material obtained from the carbonisation of biomass.
Biochar has appreciable carbon sequestration value [thereby decreasing the acceleration of climate change/chaos].
Biochar can be used in a cascade of uses eg. beginning with water filtration or coupled with molasses for livestock food, however much attention has been given to the improvement of soil functions and fertility, which includes:
In fact, there are many more benefits to soil - more and more new research is being released every year about this ranging from small pot trials to large-scale agricultural trials
It is expected that biochar and other Carbon-based technologies like graphene and biocomposites will eventually substitute many out-of-date and polluting technologies in the economy of the future. My hope is that eventually we will see closed-loop or circular economies emerging in industrialised countries with less industrialised countries leap-frogging the unsustainable technologies of the past and present.
