Biochar Production

About

Biochar is a carbon-rich material produced during pyrolysis process of biomass with a temperature between 400-650°C

Our Activities

  1. Farmers training and sensitization in groups- farmers are trained on what biochar is, how to make, and its application in the soil
  2. We collect biomass of different types from farmers Dry the biomass and produce biochar using the kon-tiki kilns
  3. We mix the biochar with manure for application in the farms
  4. Give farmers from whom we sourced the biomass so that they can apply back into their soils

Team Objectives

  1. Carbon sequestration- biochar acts as a carbon sink 
  2. Reduce waste in the environment by converting the waste it into a more useful product
  3. Improve smallholder farmer livelihoods through provision of biochar fertilizer which is cheap and more beneficial compared to inorganic fertilizers

  4. Provide employment opportunities for local people
