Our Innovative Biochar
SJE’s chemical-free biochar fertilizer is a byproduct of our patented biofuel creation and H2S removal processes. Biochar serves as a growth catalyst by minimizing crop production time and increasing output. Discover why the grass is always greener on our side.
biochar, the better alternative
There are an assortment of chemicals in most fertilizer. Are these additives the only way to achieve a high yield and high-quality product? We don’t think so.
A component of the gas purification and biofuel creation processes is pyrogenic carbon capture and storage (PyCCS) which creates biochar. Biochar has been shown effective for both soil carbon sequestration and soil health benefits.
Quick Facts About SJE’s Biochar
What Exactly is Biochar?
Biochar is created when organic matter is heated with minimal or no oxygen present through a process called pyrolysis. After it is heated, the organic material becomes a stable solid rich in carbon that takes thousands of years to break down. In addition to not breaking down, when biochar is used as a fertilizer additive, it continues to absorb and hold carbon to promote plant growth rather than leaching carbon into water sources or the atmosphere.
With the adoption of the Paris Climate Accord, biochar has become recognized as one of the most viable and accessible methods for reducing a nation’s carbon footprint and meeting future emission reduction obligations. Through its unique properties, our biochar not only captures 50% of carbon from biomass which limits emissions created by oil and gas companies, it also absorbs and sequesters carbon from the ground so it is not turned into CO2.
