Biochar carbon credits

What are biochar carbon credits?

A carbon credit (also known as a carbon offset, carbon certificate, etc.) is an intangible product that represents the avoidance, reduction or sequestration of a CO2 equivalent (CO2e) from the atmosphere.

Biochar carbon credits are credits representing a permanent sequestration of carbon. This permanent sequestration, also called removal or drawdown, differs from avoidance or reduction credits since it physically traps carbon in a stable form for long periods. In fact, biochars commonly have a half-life of thousands of years in soils.

GECA works with industry-recognized organizations, for example Puro.Earth, to ensure the carbon removal is quantified, verified and of high-quality. We believe that each project has its particularities, therefore we adapt our strategy based on your needs and goals.

Why should I consider buying biochar carbon credits instead of other types of carbon credits?

There are many reasons why you should offset your emissions via biochar credits. Here are a few:

1
Biochar is the only large-scale commercial solution that allows CO2 sequestration at a reasonable price, unlike DAC.
2
Carbon removal via biochar is a permanent event which lasts at least hundreds of year, sometimes even thousands.
3
Each biochar has multiple environmental and social co-benefits in addition to removing CO2 from the atmosphere directly.
4
Biochar carbon credits increase the accessibility of biochar for buyers that could not until now use it due to the price of biochar.
