The importance of the circular economy

“We want to integrate biochar into the circular economy and see huge untapped potential for this.”

Peik Stenlund, Co-Founder

The importance of the circular economy

The circular economy approach reduces the amount of waste to the maximum and makes resources available for reuse.

The circular economy is a key feature of a net-zero economy that protects natural resources and reduces waste, emissions and energy loss. It also reduces the dependence on fossil fuels and spurs the development of a bioeconomy.

Soil fertility

Carbon makes up about half of the organic matter in soil and is an important characteristic of soil fertility.

This is particularly important in conventional agriculture that leads to the loss of fertile soil. Climate change is further accelerating soil loss.
Soil degradation is therefore a well-known issue in agriculture and forestry. Humus loss undermines the renewal of fertile soils. Biochar can improve soil fertility and helps with the conversion to sustainable agricultural production methods. Biochar black earth such as Terra Preta has been among the most fertile soils for over 2,000 years.

Counteracting climate change

The Paris Climate Agreement commits all Parties to limiting the increase of global average temperatures to 1.5˚C.

The EU committed to climate neutrality by 2050, Germany by 2045. Greenhouse gas neutrality means removing exactly as much CO2 from the atmosphere as we emit. Removing CO2 from the atmosphere (“negative emissions”) therefore plays a decisive role. Nature makes this possible primarily through photosynthesis. Circular Carbon biochar ensures that the carbon remains sequestered in the soil and does not escape back into the atmosphere as CO2. This turns agricultural land and forests into greenhouse gas emission sinks instead of sources of emissions.

Circular Carbon’s special approach

Our team of experienced experts is continuously refining our technology and analysing new feedstocks.

The unique approach of Circular Carbon combines the principles of a circular economy, CO2 reduction and sequestration, renewable energy production and the development of fertile soils. The pyrolysis plant can be used wherever organic waste can be returned to the raw material cycle.
