Biochar is a variant of charcoal with high carbon content produced by the process of pyrolysis. Biochar enhances the soil fertility, quality and nutrient retention, resulting in increased productivity along with high crop yield. Biochar reduces the carbon emissions from both natural and industrial purposes through carbon sequestrations. This in turn, influences the conservation of climate. Biochar is comparatively reliable to the environment than the forest char which is produced by forest fire causing environment pollution, greenhouse gasses and deforestation. Biochar enriches the quality of water as it is capable of absorbing in the soil nutrients and the agrochemicals which otherwise get mixed with the utilizable water.

The global initiatives to promote the activities that allow sustainable use of resources are providing new avenues for the investment in the biochar market. Biochar is ancient concept to convert agricultural waste to useful soil supplement. The commercialization of biochar have taken place recently. A significant amount of market capitalization is held by medium and large manufacturers. In developing companies the unorganized sector have contributed to the manufacturing and consumption of biochar. Further, the gas and liquid produced during the conversion of biomass to biochar draws special attention of investors to generate business from the power production. Moreover, the utilization of biochar for water treatment is being developed and is expected to be commercialized on a large scale in near future. Wide spread applications of biochar have drawn the attention of the investors and is expected to scale up the investments from the organized sector in the near future.

Regional Insight

The development of North American biochar market is governed by rise in significant number of medium and large scale manufacturers.  The governing bodies in the region lobby the use of biochar as a way to enhance soil fertility, productiveness and climate change. The agriculture and the gardening sector in North America now prefers the use of biochar to other soil supplements.

Asia-Pacific is fast capitalizing on the biochar market. The government in the region is framing policies to include biochar in the carbon offset initiatives. The Australian government has taken the lead in providing financial benefits to the farmers that incorporate biochar in their farming practices. Further, the Australian government is planning to link its carbon farming initiative to the European Union Trading Scheme so that emitters in Europe can offset their emission by sequestering carbon emission in the Australian agriculture sector. Similar initiatives to promote the utilization of biochar are being developed globally. A number of organizations are scaling up promoting the use of biochar, the most prominent being international biochar initiative. The organizations have taken up the task to include biochar in the carbon offset programs among the member countries.
