Mark Cohen presented his experiences creating and deploying biochar. Biochar is created by pyrolysis (burning biomass at high temperature in the absence of air). The carbon transformed into biochar is recalcitrant, meaning held out of the atmosphere. Used in compost and soils, biochar’s tiny pores hold water, micronutrients and microorganisms that supports plant photosynthesis, sequestering carbon from the atmosphere.
