Leading the Charge
The State of Carbon Dioxide Removal report states that we need to remove between 3.5 and 5.4 gigatons of carbon dioxide each year by 2030 to keep global warming well below 2°C. Biochar, the frontrunning greenhouse gas removal technology, is ready to be deployed at scale and meet this challenge.
Harvesting Carbon
Biochar is a carbon-rich product produced by stabilising the carbon captured in biomass, typically wood, which has been removed from the air by plants. Black Bull Biochar makes tailored biochar products that integrate seamlessly with existing farm management systems, empowering farmers to optimise crop productivity while reducing on-farm emissions.
Scaling Greenhouse Gas Removal
BBB is scaling greenhouse gas removal by bringing together industry and agriculture on a pioneering platform that uses biochar to restore our environment, remove carbon and enrich our industrial and agricultural systems.
Harnessing Photosynthesis
Trees and other plants spend their lifetime absorbing carbon dioxide in the atmosphere, keeping the planet in balance. At the end of their life - through either decomposition or burning - this carbon is returned back to the atmosphere.
Breaking the Carbon Cycle
When trees are harvested to produce timber, multiple product streams are created. Low-value co-products, such as sawdust and woodchip are typically decomposed or burned at the end of their life. These co-products are diverted to become biochar feedstock.
Pyrolysis to the Rescue
Biochar is produced by heating biomass in a low-oxygen environment, a process known as pyrolysis. This securely locks the carbon in biomass, preventing it from returning to the atmosphere for thousands of years. The pyrolysis process generates renewable heat which can be utilised in industry.
Enriching Farms
Biochar is a nutrient and carbon-rich soil additive made from plants. Using biochar in your manure management can supercharge your organic fertiliser and improve your farm’s carbon storage, productivity and soil health.
Improve Bedding Conditions
Reducing bacteria in bedding to keep your livestock happy and clean
Enhanced Organic Fertiliser
More composting and nutrient retention; and less ammonia and greenhouse gasses
Healthier Soils
Improved water and nutrient availability for more productive crops
Diversify Energy Supply
Reduce your dependence on fossil-fuel based heat, for a more sustainable and resilient energy supply
Reduce On-Site Emissions
Power your site using renewable heat without contributing to greenhouse gas emissions
Support Carbon Removal
Working with BBB supports carbon removal and helps to restore the planet’s health
Heat that keeps the planet cool
Hosting biochar production can help decarbonise heat-hungry industrial sites. The renewable energy generated through pyrolysis serves as an alternative to heat derived from fossil fuels.
