We modify biomass power plants for biochar production, thus leveraging existing infrastructure, trained staff, and hard earned utility and procurement contracts. This lets us get to significant production volume fast and with low cap ex. We’re initially focused on utilization of forest biomass from high fire hazard areas in California, thus helping mitigate catastrophic wildfire in our feedstock sourcing. The high quality biochar we make is then distributed primarily in ag, and commonly in collaboration with compost yards. This gets us efficiency in shared equipment, trucking, and additional co-benefits; when biochar is used in composting it not only makes a great combined product but ends up dropping GHG emissions from compost significantly. After years in the field, we’ve gained fruitful relations with some of California’s largest ag companies, such as outlined in a recent field trial report.
After more than a decade in the making, the carbon removal credits we’re registering now are fueling significant growth and helping us realize a long time goal – to put massive amounts of carbon back in the ground and leave a legacy of fertile soil – and it’s exciting.
