OUR PROJECT

Biochar is a simple product and the benefits of production and application of it can have a significant impact on carbon emissions, the health of our soil and the how we create materials in the future.

Known as a carbon negative production process - our team of engineers and specialists have been researching the technology, application, and markets for wood-based biochar.

Biochar is a unique method of carbon sequestration whereby the biochar process expedites the decomposition of biomass to stable carbon. This prevents carbon dioxide from entering the atmosphere as it would have been released slowly by the decaying plant life.

Carbon is essential for soil health and the method of creating biochar to mix into the soil speeds the natural process of a plant’s cycle, while reducing CO2 output.

Because biochar is a carbon rich product there are seemingly endless applications and uses for it.

WHAT IS BIOCHAR

Biochar is an organic, carbon rich material produced when biomass undergoes high temperature pyrolysis to produce a stable carbon product.

Biochar has been around for thousands of years, known as Terra Preta, a nutrient rich soil associated with the abundantly lush dark soils of the Amazon.

Biochar is commonly used in agriculture to enhance fertilizers, water and nutrient retention, increase root strength, as well as boost and promote the living microbiology in the soil.

The porous structure of biochar allows microbials to inhabit the biochar, creating a tiny metropolis of nutrient enhancing bacteria and fungi underground. These microbials are what feed the plant, cycling nutrients and water for plant health.

APPLICATION

In addition to supplementing soil, biochar can be integrated into a variety of everyday products and value enhancing uses - acting as a more sustainable and ecofriendly alternative. There are many applications for biochar, some more commonly known than others.

  • water filtration

  • animal application

  • building materials

  • adsorbents

  • fabrics

  • cosmetics

  • carbon black

  • graphene

Our goal at RDA is to explore the possible applications of biochar as a product enhancing component and promote the clean technology producing it.
