Concept proven since 7'000 years: The Terra Preta discovery shows mankind, that it is possible to increase fertility and yield, carbon-content, fertlizer efficiency and water storage capacity of agricultural soils by the help of biochar made from harvest residues. Now we can even create energy out of it. Through the combination of our leanest gas burner technology (and special micro turbines), it is now possible to create clean energy (power and heat) additionally to the biochar production and even wet biomass can be used directly. Per kWh of useful energy, the PPP has a carbon foodprint of minus 500 g CO2. Let's go carbon negative or climate positive!
