Using 'Biochar' to cut greenhouse gas emissions

Green (Living) Review

In addition to these benefits, researchers are now saying that biochar has potential to mitigate climate change as it can help sequester carbon and thus cut our greenhouse gas emissions. Results of the study show that by applying biochar before planting energy crops, soil greenhouse-gas emissions can be cut by around a third. The paper appeared in the journal Global Change Biology Bioenergy.
