Global Biochar Market Report 2024-2034: With Growing Adoption, Biochar can Play an Instrumental Role in Climate Change Abatement at Scale in the Coming Decades

Dublin, Feb. 29, 2024 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- The "Global Market for Biochar 2024-2034" report has been added to's offering.

Biochar is a sustainable form of charcoal produced by heating organic waste materials in a low-oxygen environment. Various agricultural residues, forestry scraps, manure, and other biomass feedstocks can be converted into biochar using pyrolysis reactors ranging from small-scale batch containers to large-scale continuous industrial plants. The porous carbon-rich material generated, resembling charcoal, can then be incorporated into soil as a means of long-term carbon sequestration. Unlike normal charcoal that readily decomposes, biochar can persist in soil for hundreds to thousands of years. This makes it a uniquely stable conduit for capturing carbon dioxide emitted from biomass that would otherwise return back to the atmosphere.

Beyond its climate change mitigation potential, biochar as a soil amendment also provides agronomic co-benefits. Its highly porous structure helps retain moisture and nutrients increasing soil fertility. The porous carbon matrix also supports beneficial microbiota growth and acts as a refuge for microbes. Biochar additions have shown increased yields for various crops. It thus serves as a valuable tool for enhancing soil health while also permanently locking up carbon that would otherwise be released back into the air.

The pyrolysis production process also generates bio-oil and syngas byproducts that can displace fossil fuels. Thus biochar systems present win-win scenarios allowing sustainable waste management and soil enhancement, while also generating clean energy. With growing adoption, biochar can play an instrumental role in climate change abatement at scale in the coming decades.
