Charlotte O’Brien, Director of Bio Bamboo and CO2 Drawdown Solutions, explains how to significantly draw down carbon from the atmosphere and sequester it as a Biochar soil conditioner using bamboo to fuel pyrolysis.
Adding the Biochar to depleted soil fosters the spread of Mycorrhizal fungus in the soil, which in turn creates Glomalin (which sequesters even more Carbon). The enriched soil then produces more biomass which can be processed into more biochar…the result is an exponential carbon draw down! The process also generates a bevy of marketable bi-products.
