Pacific Biochar x Georgia Renewable Power – Madison

Biochar Carbon Removal Project

Project Description:

Pacific Biochar Benefit Corporation partners with Georgia Renewable Power’s Madisonfacility located in Colbert, Georgia to harvest biochar from their bioenergy plant whichproduces 412,000 MWh of renewable energy annually. The plant is fueled by forestryresidues including logging debris, urban green waste, and mill residuals from nearbyoperations. The biochar is either applied on local farmland to improve climate resiliency ofthe soil or used as a binding agent for landfill solidification and stabilization at regionalwaste management facilities to prevent hazardous leachate.
