The Promise of Biochar

VenEarth is a major supporter of the International Biochar Initiative. This video was produced by IBI for the Poznan round of climate discussions, during which biochar was placed on the agenda for Copenhagen.

Soil Carbon, Science, Policy and Politics

We are focused on two complementary strategies.

First: to drive down the cost of collecting surplus solar energy over farmland (particularly in areas subject to desertification).

Second: to enhance carbon sequestration in soil biosystems — by driving down the cost of converting excess agricultural biomass into carbon-rich soil amendments.

Our goal: to transform the net impact of farming (especially in third-world nations) to withdraw tons per hectare of CO2 from the atmosphere each year, while enhancing the energy, economy, and health of farming communities.
