Production of biochar in lower income countries

Production of biochar in lower income countries

All over the world and for more than two thousand years, charcoal and biochar have been produced for heating, cooking or fertilizing the soil. Use the Global Artisan C-Sink Standard for the production, processing and application of biochar in agriculture in Low, Lower Middle and Higher Middle Income countries. 

The Global Artisan C-Sink guarantees that the biomass feedstock in low, lower middle and higher middle income countries (see classification of countries here) is sustainably produced in an artisan way with Kon-Tiki type pyrolysis, thus reducing emissions in the production process of biochar. All aspects of the biochar’s quality are monitored and documented. Beside this, C-sink credits can be generated by using the biochar for agricultural purposes. This offers the possibility to sell CO2 certificates via existing trading platforms and contribute to the income of farmers.
