Reduc­ing CO2-emis­sions with biochar

About 10 percent of EU CO2 emis­sions could be offset by more pro­duc­tive use of biomass and plant residues through pyrol­y­sis. This is the con­clu­sion of Prof. Bruno Glaser from the Uni­ver­si­ty of Halle and author of the article “Biochar use…

Why biochar does not decom­pose

Why biochar does not decom­pose

There is great research inter­est in carbon © bound by pyrol­y­sis (car­bon­i­sa­tion), due pri­mar­i­ly to the poten­tial role of biochar (charred biomass) as a long-term carbon sink in soils and sed­i­ments. This is because biochar resists micro­bial…
