Biochar is a great technology that we're all re-discovering.
Biochar is a great balancing additive for many applications, and it’s great for the environment. Here at Oxford Biochar, we are experts in manufacturing Biochar for compost, soil enhancements, water filtration, animal feed and other food-related and cosmetic applications.
Biochar is the carbon rich product obtained by the pyrolysis of biomass (heating under oxygen-deprived conditions).
Our Biochar is created from pure biomass, and its source is certified by Grown In Britain (GiB). It is not mixed or enhanced with foreign materials, because of this you can be confident it’s safe to use as animal feed and to grow food too.
Biochar (agrichar) may well be the ‘magic bullet’ to mitigate climate change, enhance soil fertility and promote biodiversity. It is scientifically proven that when it is reintroduced into our food chain, it can have incredibly positive effects on;
- Carbon offsetting, through use in farming, aids plant growth and locks the carbon into the ground
- Reduction of CO2 into the atmosphere, use in animal feedstock as a supplement helps reduce methane emissions and promotes better digestive activity.
- Regeneration of new biochar stock, use of old biomass to create more Biochar and re-use to grow new trees and plants.
Having access to the most abundant supply of Biochar in the UK, Oxford Biochar has supplied Biochar to all verticals such as; Farming, Horticulture, Animal Feed, Water Filtration and Medical Applications.
Biochar can be made from a much broader range of materials than charcoal can. Crop residues, manures, and wood are all potential feedstocks. Oxford Biochar is only composed of 100% wood sourced from sustainable British woodlands.
