Biochar Carbon Removal Offsets

Carbon emissions reduction and removal

Many organisations and businesses are taking steps to reduce their carbon emissions footprint. The first step is to focus on reducing carbon emissions from their source. This means reducing emissions from cars, factories, energy and other sources before turning to carbon removal offsets. There are a variety of ways to achieve this, from investing in renewable energy sources like wind and solar to switching to electric vehicles.

Once steps have been taken to reduce carbon emissions from the source, carbon removal offsets can be used to further mitigate the impact of any remaining emissions. It is important to note that carbon removal offsets should not be viewed as a substitute for reducing emissions, but seen as a complementary tool in our efforts to combat climate change.

Carbon removal offsets come in various forms, such as tree planting, soil sequestration, and direct air capture technologies. The idea is that these projects remove carbon from the atmosphere, either by storing it in natural resources or by capturing it and storing it in underground geological formations.

Purchasing carbon removal offsets, helps fund projects that remove carbon dioxide from the atmosphere. In exchange for their contribution, organisations and businesses can claim to have offset a portion of their emissions, effectively neutralising some of their impact on the environment.

While purchasing carbon removal offsets is not a silver bullet solution to the climate crisis, it can be a powerful tool when used in conjunction with other sustainable emissions reduction practices.

Carbon removal offsets are not made equal

Buying carbon offsets is not a new concept, but it has gained popularity post COVID, as the collective consciousness becomes more aware of the urgent need to address climate change. However, it is important to note that not all carbon offsets are created equal and have been created by industries in their infancy. Therefore, it is crucial to do your research and understand what you are purchasing.

Our focus: UK biochar carbon removal

The UK, like many other nations, has a great need for biochar as part of a regeneration of the living soil systems, leading to more sustainable fertiliser use and natural productivity gains. The process of producing biochar and sequestering it in soil, locks up carbon, which is the basis for it being used as a digital carbon removal offset asset.

At CapChar, our focus is solely on biochar carbon removal, as we believe this to be the best scientifically measurable method to remove carbon dioxide from our atmosphere today. The key attributes to our high quality carbon removal offsets are:

Robust scientific methodology

Data transparency and reporting

3rd party verification
