Biochar is a solid, carbon-rich product of biomass pyrolisis.
Due to the high levels of stable carbon, biochar is a porous soil enhancer that can supply minerals, prevent nutrients leaching and water contamination, and retain soil moisture. As a result, a portion of the carbon removed from the atmosphere by plants via photosynthesis is locked in the biochar and stored in soil.
Extensive studies of biochar-rich dark earths in the Amazonia region (terra preta) have led to a wider appreciation for biochar’s soil enhancement and carbon storage properties.
