What we do

We bring artisan biochar carbon removal projects to life.

Our projects are structured into 4 phases.

Let's remove CO₂ together with Biochar!

Frequently asked questions

1. Why do we need Carbon Dioxide Removal (CDR)?

According to the IPCC Special Report on Global Warming of 1.5°C, "the deployment of CDR to counterbalance hard-to-abate emissions is unavoidable if net-zero CO₂ or greenhouse gases (GHG) emissions are to be achieved". In other words, we are out of budget and all efforts to reduce or avoid emissions will not be enough. We need to incorporate net-negative-emissions activities into our economy to remove, depending on the scenario we will face in the future, up to 21 gigatons of CO₂ per year by 2050. This poses an enormous challenge which can only be mastered collectively.

2. Are Carbon Offsets and Carbon Dioxide Removal the same?

As the emerging carbon market struggles to find uniformed definitions, the boundaries between the two concepts are often blurry and misunderstood. However, they are clearly to be distinguished. Offsets most commonly refer to emissions reductions or avoidance. Carbon Dioxide Removal (CDR) principles allow to only sell the net-negative emissions and generally undergo more strict quality measures to ensure the highest integrity:

Permanence: How long will the CO₂ be safely removed from the atmosphere?
Does the CDR activity cause new climate benefits, or would the carbon removal have happened anyway?
Carbon leakage:
Are emissions shifted elsewhere because of the CDR activity?
How emission-intensive is the CDR process relative to its carbon removal potential?
Verifiability: How is the CO₂ removal monitored and verified?
What are the consequences for ecosystems, biodiversity, food security, etc.?

3. Is it expensive to start a Biochar Carbon Removal (BCR) operation?

In our experience, capital expenditures are on average around 20,000 - 30,000 EUR, give or take, depending on the economic environment.

4. How long does it take to start a project?

From the first handshake until a fully audited project takes about 3 months if everything runs smoothly and everyone pushes forward. If this process has been done once, the next project can be onboarded a lot faster.
