Solutions to environmental challenges using biochar

SoilCare provides biochar, its production technology and innovative concepts with positive impacts to economy and environment.

Biochar acts as a water and nutrient reservoir in the soil and growing media. In this way, the plants get both water and nutrients better. Water stays longer where it is most needed – in the plant’s root system. In addition, nitrogen and other nutrients bind to the soil along with biochar, and plants can use it more efficiently when needed. In this case, the transport of nutrients into the water bodies decreases, as does eutrophication and the growth of algae.  

The use of biochar increases in bio-processes such as composting and biogas production because it enhances the activity of bacteria. When added to animal feed, biochar prevents diseases and improves animal well-being. 

Using biochar also saves the climate, because biochar creates a permanent carbon sink. The use of biochar in gas and water filtration and in many high-tech applications such as batteries and fuel cells is increasing.
