Carbo Culture Biocarbons - Hacking the carbon cycle with biochar manufacturing

By amplifying nature’s time-tested strategy for regeneration, the carbon cycle, Carbo Culture projects to sequester a gigaton of carbon dioxide annually within a decade.

Every year, $100B worth of soil is lost to erosion and degradation and it is expected to reach the trillions by mid-century. In addition, there is a trillion ton debt of carbon in the atmosphere, already severely impacting our ecosystem’s resilience. To tackle this challenge, Carbo Culture developed functional biocarbon from waste. With its innovative and patented manufacturing process, Carbo Culture produces high-quality biochar for better agricultural performance and soil remediation. Carbo Culture system is circular and uses less than 4% start-up energy for production. At scale, one full-sized facility is projected to sequester almost 20.000 tons of CO2 annually. Biochar is amongst the most affordable, technologically ready, carbon sequestration methods with the largest potential for CO2 utilization.
