Using our patented process, we transform waste biomass into a pure carbon substance known as biochar.
This diverse material has many uses across a number of applications, and thanks to our unique production process, we offer some of the most reliable biochar on the market.
We produce high-quality biochar for agriculture, construction, and urban landscaping applications.
High surface area
Due to its high surface area, our biochar can adsorb and retain water and nutrients.
High carbon content
Biochar’s unique properties make it a powerful soil enhancer in a number of ways.
The porous structure, negative charge and large surface area of biochar give it unique properties that make it a powerful soil enhancer. Biochar prevents nutrients from leaching away in soils, while at the same time helping to adsorb and retain water. This improves the soil structure, increases crop yields, and returns carbon back to the soil.
Biochar is a sustainable alternative to peat, providing a similar CEC and water-holding capacity whilst being significantly better for the environment.
Reduce soil emissions
Our in-house experts provide guidance to quantify and validate the benefits of biochar to our customers.
Climate change poses new challenges to the urban environment. Using biochar in tree planting and plant beds allows green spaces to retain stormwater and become more drought resilient. In addition, Carbo Culture’s biochar has a high water retention rate and suitable particle size to be used in structural soils for urban applications and green infrastructure.
Keep trees alive
As cities get warmer and droughts become more prevalent, biochar offers a natural and sustainable way to keep city greenspaces thriving.
Reduce toxins in water
We are available to support trials and experimental designs to establish biochar use for your city in Europe and the US.
Given cement is the source of 8% of all global CO2 emissions, decarbonisation efforts are urgently needed. Carbo Culture’s biochar is built to scale and allows for a secure and consistent supply of highly stable biochar. This makes Carbo Culture the ideal partner to supply biochar for the construction industry. Using our biochar in construction applications can address two pressing needs at once, sequestering carbon and reducing the carbon footprint of materials, such as cement, for climate-friendly concrete.
Biochar can be used as a direct replacement of up to 10% of cement while maintaining the required compression and flexural strength.
