Soil Restoration

Biochar produced from clean biomass residues is used to restore depleted soils and make them fit for agriculture or reforestation.

Biochar can be an important tool to increase food security and cropland diversity in areas with severely depleted soils, scarce organic resources, and inadequate water and fertilizer supplies. In fact, biochar improves water quality and quantity by increasing soil retention of nutrients and agrochemicals for plant and crop utilization. More nutrients stay in the soil instead of leaching into groundwater and causing pollution.
