Biochar is carbon negative! Making biochar removes CO2 from the atmosphere.
Biochar has many agricultural benefits.
Biochar increases crop yields, sometimes substantially if the soil is in poor condition.
Biochar helps to prevent fertilizer runoff and leaching, allowing the use of less fertilizers and diminishing agricultural pollution to the surrounding environment.
Biochar retains moisture, helping plants through periods of drought more easily.
Biochar replenishes exhausted or marginal soils with organic carbon and fosters the growth of soil microbes essential for nutrient absorption, particularly mycorrhizal fungi.
Most importantly, Biochar technology can replace the practice of burning crops fields, eliminating the pollution while creating a product that will help farmers enrich their soils and increase their crop yields.

Their plans to use the biochar include placing pans of the charcoal underneath beds to help keep rooms smelling fresh and keep the moisture and mildew down. It will also be used in linen closets, and in the kitchen to absorb smoke and odor.
