Carbo Culture makes functional biocarbon from waste to keep CO2 out of the atmosphere.
The company is working with green and blue infrastructure and carbon-negative materials developers to start a new era of Carbon Culturing.
According to the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC), biochar is one of the most promising CO2 negative emissions technologies.
By turning biomass into biochar, we lock that carbon into a stable, solid form for over a thousand years. Taking advantage of carbon’s path from the atmosphere to plant matter to a stable storage form is what makes biochar a negative emissions technology.
Carbo Culture biochar encapsulates carbon into a stable, solid form that remains unchanged for over a thousand years. The stability of biochar is predicted by the oxygen to carbon (O:C) molar ratio. With a low O:C ratio of 0.03-0.08, the expected half-life of Carbo Culture biochar is up to 10 million years.
Long-term safety and predictability
High-purity biochar is fire derived carbon. Pyrogenic carbon PyC has been found in soils throughout the world, as nature has been making it for millions of years already, for the good of soils and ecosystems.
By making biochar, we’re making benefits for future generations and organisms on this planet, not leaving unknowns.
Biochar offers a low-risk path to large-scale carbon removal.
