To limit the impact of climate change, companies can use carbon credits to encourage carbon negative processes that reduce the emissions of greenhouse gases. Wakefield BioChar is a leading supplier of carbon credits through the production of biochar from wood wastes. There is an immediate sequestration of carbon during the processing of wood waste to biochar. Without the conversion of the wood waste to biochar the wood will decompose and release greenhouse gases into the atmosphere.
Wakefield BioChar has recently entered the carbon marketplace thanks to our pairing with Puro.earth, a leading platform for the trade of CO2 Removal Certificates (CORCs). We’re honored to be a supplier of CORCs, as Puro.earth uses a meticulous vetting and assessment process to ensure suppliers are carbon net-negative (meaning they sequester more carbon than they produce). Through this partnership, we can provide a variety of benefits to businesses and individuals who may use biochar products for home landscaping or on hobby farms.
Biochar Carbon Credits for Businesses
The companies that Wakefield BioChar currently sells CORCs to can access a variety of advantages when choosing to support biochar carbon credit programs. For instance, CORCs allow us to lower our prices to a more competitive level, which businesses can take advantage of to reduce their spending. It also means that more industries will be able to use biochar for agricultural purposes or make better use of waste materials resulting from their industrial and manufacturing methods.
Part of this process entails identifying mills with large volumes of untreated waste wood. This wood is ideal for pyrolysis, which is the heating at high temperatures in an oxygen-deprived environment to convert biomass into biochar. This highlights Wakefield BioChar’s overarching goal: to turn waste products into something useful.
Biochar Carbon Credits for Individuals
In addition to the numerous benefits we offer the buyers of our CORCs, we can also benefit individual consumers thanks to our presence in the carbon marketplace. In this case, we’re encouraging homeowners and owners of small hobby farms to use our biochar products on their property to reduce their carbon footprint and positively impact their environment.
It can be daunting to think about how an individual can make a difference in climate change. After all, your actions can appear infinitesimal when compared to massive corporations. It can also be frustrating to know that you’re doing your part when the companies that contribute most to climate change fail to act as needed to make a real difference.
We want you to know that we’re hard at work partnering with the manufacturing sector to create beneficial reuse programs and find incentives for our partners to improve their sustainability operations. In addition to partnering with the manufacturing sector, we also want to emphasize that your actions do matter. Consider that there is more backyard surface area in the U.S. than cornfields. If every homeowner and hobby farm used biochar instead of hazardous chemicals, it would significantly impact climate change. In addition, our products sequester carbon, meaning they’re converted into a stable state and stored for many years.
The use of biochar also benefits you on a personal level. These products are not only beneficial to the environment, but they can also help your lawn and garden thrive. Biochar can create healthy plants and grass without the potential environmental hazards of chemical fertilizers. The result is beautiful landscapes and thriving gardens that do not negatively impact the surrounding environment.
