Thank you.

We deeply appreciate your interest in biochar.

Many scientists say that regenerative agricultural practices can turn back the carbon clock, reducing atmospheric CO2 while also boosting soil productivity and increasing its resilience to floods, pests and drought. According to Yale:8

“The importance of soil carbon — how it is leached from the earth and how that process can be reversed — is the subject of intensifying scientific investigation, with important implications for the effort to slow the rapid rise of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere.

Scientists say that more carbon resides in soil than in the atmosphere and all plant life combined; there are 2,500 billion tons of carbon in soil, compared with 800 billion tons in the atmosphere and 560 billion tons in plant and animal life. And compared to many proposed geoengineering fixes, storing carbon in soil is simple: It’s a matter of returning carbon where it belongs.”

Rattan Lal, director of Ohio State University’s Carbon Management and Sequestration Center, has also commented on this issue, saying:9

“The top priorities are restoring degraded and eroded lands, as well as avoiding deforestation and the farming of peatlands, which are a major reservoir of carbon and are easily decomposed upon drainage and cultivation …

Bringing carbon back into soils has to be done not only to offset fossil fuels, but also to feed our growing global population. We cannot feed people if soil is degraded.”

From Dr. Mercola’s recent article on biochar…

  • An estimated 80 percent of soil carbon in heavily farmed areas has been lost due to destructive plowing, overgrazing and the use of carbon-depleting chemical fertilizers and pesticides
  • By adding more carbon back into the soil and preventing carbon losses, we can address many of today’s most pressing problems, including dwindling water reserves, soil degeneration and poor nutrition
  • Carbon sequestration can reduce the carbon dioxide load in the atmosphere, and once sequestered in the soil, the carbon actively nourishes soil health and improves water retention
  • Organic carbon is stored in soil by exclusively binding to certain soil structures, and the soil’s capacity to absorb carbon dioxide is directly related to its health
  • One way to increase carbon in your soil is to add biochar, which is created by slowly heating a biomass in a low-oxygen environment (such as a kiln) until everything but the carbon is burned off
