What is Biochar?

Biochar is activated charcoal which can be used to lift the productivity of agriculture and as long-lived carbon stores in soils. It can be used to enhance water quality and as a bioremediation tool for contaminated soils. The production of biochar can also deliver bioenergy and deal with many types of ‘liability’ biomass that offset carbon emissions.¬†
