As trees grow, they absorb carbon dioxide

Trees absorb carbon dioxide (CO₂) and convert it into hydrocarbon structures via photosynthesis. The carbon is stored in trunks and branches as the grow. On average, a tree will absorb about 30 kg of CO₂ a year (about 50% of a tree's dry mass is carbon!)

When trees die, carbon is released

After a tree dies, it will either: decompose or burn (naturally or specifically for energy). In both cases, almost all their stored CO₂ is released back into the atmosphere.

Biochar production prevents carbon release

Pyrolysis, the main process in biochar production, converts a large fraction of the organic carbon, that would have otherwise been released into the air, into hydrocarbon structures that will never decompose.

Carbon gets stored in charcoal form

Now in stable solid form, the biochar (hydrocarbons) can be permanently stored in our soil while improving the quality of their soil and the health of plants.

Biochar keeps carbon out of the atmosphere

Biochar resists organic decomposition so when stored in soil, it'll stay out of our atmosphere for thousands of years.

Scaled globally, this can have a huge positive impact

It's estimated that biochar production, scaled globally, has a potential to sequester up to 29 billion tons of carbon dioxide. It has been recognized by the IPCC as one of only six technologies with the potential to draw carbon dioxide down from the atmosphere at large scale.
