High-quality biochar for long-term sustainability
Turn Agri-waste streams into valuable resources including carbon removal solution, increasing farmers ' revenue, and regenerating soil in the tropics
Approximately 780 million metric tons of agriculture residue is generated from crops
This waste, instead of turning into ashes, can be converted into biochar which can supplement farmers’ income.
WHAT IS BIOCHAR?
Biochar is a charcoal-like substance that is made by burning organic material from agricultural and forestry wastes such as wood, agricultural residues, and other biomasses.
It is made through a process called pyrolysis, which involves heating the biomass in a low-oxygen environment. This process converts the biomass into a solid, carbon-rich material with a high surface area.
HOW WE CREATE BIOCHAR
Kon tiki flame curtain kiln is a low-tech setup for charring organic matter instead of open-air burning. During operation, the fire is started with an initial layer of biomass. Gradually the biomass is stacked on the embers and the process is repeated as the ash appears in the previous layer.
High production volumes can be attained at low cost.
The Kon-Tiki kiln is known for its simplicity and low-tech design.
Our in-house experts willing to support and go with farmers step by step.
BENEFITS OF BIOCHAR
A sustainable approach
Biochar provides several benefits for agriculture and the environment
When Biochar is mixed with compost of bio-fertiliser it becomes a soil amendment that enhances both nutrient retention and soil structure.
Healthier plant growth
Increased water retention
Sustainable agricultural practices
Incorporated into soil, biochar acts as a long term carbon sink and an effective carbon removal solution. It is not easily decomposed, so it remain in the soil for hundreds of years.
Decrease wasted resources
Farmers can earn income from the sales of carbon removal credits, creating a profitable agricultural cycle, and create a positive impact on local communities.
Crop yield improved
Increase income resources
