Biochar - Charcoal Soil Application
This dual action is due to the presence of a very stable carbonaceous fraction (which allow storing carbon in the soil), the high stability and the positive effects on the hydrological characteristics of soil, nutrients availability and biological component.
Gasification creates as a by-product a highly porous, fine-grained charcoal that varies in its chemical and physical properties depending on process typology and the originating feedstock.
A.G.T. is strongly involved with the world scientific community to promote the use of Biochar in agriculture through active research, demonstration and divulgation, which aims to better understand improvements to soil dynamics and crop yield improvements.
