  • We sustainably convert renewable forestry wood waste into soil amendments -Typically, wood waste is generated & burned during forestry operations -We’ve developed innovative way to convert this waste to a high-value soil amendment that sequesters carbon that would normally escape into the atmosphere.
  • We produce biochar w/ our highly mobile, engineered blanket. 1 st we drape the blanket over a pile and ignite it 2 nd the blanket controls the oxygen flow, therefore the temperature 3 rd the temperature ensures that carbon remains because it the temperature doesn’t reach a point where the carbon burns Finally, oxygen is cutoff and the biochar cools down before collection.

    8. Biochar Users Agriculture: What is the value of adding SOC? What is the value of reducing fertilizer runoff? Nitrification? How much per acre is spent on inputs? What are biochar benefits worth? Retail: What kind of soil amendments do your customers look for? What benefit do you see from adding biochar to your product line? What price range do you anticipate to sell biochar? Advocates: Describe what holds this market back? Who are the early adopters? What defines biochar quality? Market Makers: What is the supply availability and pricing trends? Getting out of the Building Landowner What are they paying now? What is the value of risk mitigation? (fire) What is improved air quality worth? Can our technology lengthen the burn season? (policy change) What is the annual burden of waste removal?
