Burying charcoal to improve crop yield and offset CO2
I am involved in work to develop biochar technologies. Biochar involves the burial of charcoal in agricultural soils to improve crop yield and offset CO2. By converting decomposing, agricultural waste into biochar, we can sequester up to 2 billion tonnes of CO2 each year according to the journal Nature. This represents around 12% of global CO2 emissions. I am interested to hear the thoughts of the TED community on the potential of biochar, particularly in the developing world.
