What is Biochar?

Biochar is elemental carbon refined from biomass and made cleanly using today's technology. When done responsibly and sustainably, production and use of biochar has been shown to boost crop yields, build long lasting soil fertility, and conserve water.

Who thought of Biochar?

The ancient civilizations of the Amazon used biochar for their waste streams and, today, their soils retain fertility. Thousands of years later this process has been re-discovered by, primarily, Cornell University. Today, biochar is elemental carbon refined from biomass and made cleanly using today's technology.
