Lock Carbon Forever In Soil Through Biochar
BioChar - The Future of Carbon Sequestration
Taking the vision of the GNG Group further – Genesis of a New Generation which is not only ecologically sustainable but also nature and earth friendly. Our Tag Line says everything, “Get Green, Get Growing”. The whole concept is about creating environment friendly conditions where all of us can grow in sync with the nature. The philosophy behind our work - “A family and society grow great when old men plant trees, whose shade they know, they shall never sit in.”
Disposal of a billion tonnes of recyclable waste which if not managed can be a climate calamity.
There is a growing demand for clean energy to mitigate carbon emission. Huge volume of waste can be recycled and can be converted into the source of green and clean energy and soil nutrition. This will not only dispose waste and put carbon back in the soil but will be a huge revenue generating and in turn employment creating activity. This can be the turning point in India’s fight for a better climate.
BioChar as the name suggests is biologically made charcoal made using biomass through Pyrolytic process in the absence of oxygen.
Biochar is a stable solid, rich in carbon, and can endure in soil for thousands of years. Biochar thus has the potential to help mitigate climate change via carbon sequestration. Biochar is an organic soil enhancer which is used for amendment of the soil. It is prepared by burning organic wastes from agriculture into charcoal like substances.
Negative Carbon Cycle
The biomass takes CO2 from the atmosphere during its growth via photosynthesis. This biomass is subsequently collected and pyrolyzed, with a part of the CO2 contained in the biomass being trapped in the ground after being reduced to carbon and viscous molecules (charcoal).
The flammable gas mixture, is collected and utilised as fuel; the CO2 generated when combusting it is usually caught, locked and reduced from emission making it carbon negative
