What's in our Biochar?

Our biochar is uniquely crafted from distinct feedstocks: green waste, poultry litter, and woody waste. Each source is used to produce its own type of biochar, tailored for specific applications and benefits, ensuring that we harness the full potential of each material. This approach allows us to provide a range of biochar products, each with its unique properties and advantages for soil health and plant growth. Here's a closer look at what makes each type of our biochar special.

Green Waste Biochar

We specifically target the components that are unsuitable for composting so as not to negatively impact those operations. In practice, this mainly consists compost oversize - the larger woodier fractions that are filtered out before, or after the composting process.

This material is typically low value, while delivering many of the benefits of more expensive wood chip derived biochar.

This type of biochar significantly improves soil structure, enhancing moisture retention and nutrient availability. It’s a prime example of how we're turning everyday waste into something that not only benefits the garden but also the planet by capturing carbon and promoting sustainable soil management.

Poultry Litter Biochar

Our poultry litter biochar is derived from broiler litter, a combination of chicken manure and bedding materials.

This process creates a nutrient-rich biochar, high in nitrogen, phosphorus, and potassium, essential elements for plant growth. By transforming poultry litter into biochar, we reduce potential environmental pollution by minimizing nutrient runoff and lock these nutrients in a form that is more accessible to plants over time.

This type of biochar is especially beneficial for enriching nutrient-depleted soils and boosting crop yields in an eco-friendly manner.

Woody Waste Biochar

Sourced from woody waste such as branches, bark, and sawdust, this biochar adds a carbon-rich component to soils, enhancing their aeration, water holding capacity, and overall fertility.

Utilizing woody waste not only aids in managing forest and landscaping biproducts but also contributes to the promotion of a circular economy.

Woody waste biochar is ideal for improving soil structure and water efficiency, making it a valuable asset for any agricultural or gardening practice focused on sustainability and long-term soil health.
