Carbon Capture, Utilization, and Removal for Good
About Thai Carbon
We are the first commercial producer in Asia to utilize a US patented slow pyrolysis process to produce high quality biochar. We can use a variety of Thailand abundant biomass feedstocks which have already done the hard work of absorbing carbon dioxide from the air during their growth. After utilization, the biochar will remain stable for over 1000 years, sequestering approximately 3 tons of carbon dioxide for every one ton of biochar applied.
What Is Biochar Used For?
Biochar is a truly remarkable and versatile technological material. Due to its high carbon content and porous microstructure which is literally a "carbon copy" of the feedstock's original organic structure. Our biochar can be utilized for agriculture yield improvement, water filtration, toxic metal absorption, structural material enhancement, as well as a graphene source in advanced energy applications and more.
Biochar Agriculture Applications
Biochar has cascading benefits in the area of agriculture. It can be applied to the soil as an amendment where it acts as a repository for nutrients, microorganisms, and water for the plant's root system. This has the effect of increasing yields significantly as well as lessening the demand for fertilizer and water.
Biochar can also be used to improve the soil quality, through remediation of harmful toxin is the soil. Biochar will absorb the toxins and lock them away in its structure making them no longer bio-available for plants to uptake.
Biochar can also be used as animal feed additive where it improves the animals digestive health, leads to higher weight gains and lower usage of antibiotics. The biochar residual in the manure is then suitable for cascade value as a fertilizer.
Biochar Materials Applications
Biiochar also has multiple applications for enhancing the properties of materials.
Small portions of biochar added to building materials such as concrete or plastics can substantially increase strength, with reducing weight. It can also reduce the carbon footprint of the manufacturing of these materials.
Biochar can be added to cardboard to make packaging materials carbon neutral, and better for composting.
Biochar can be made highly conductive by increasing the content of graphene, making it very attractive for 3D printing of conductive parts, fuel cell and super capacitor energy systems.
How Do We Generate Carbon Removal Credits?
By carefully documenting the carbon footprint of each step from sustainable production of feedstocks, environmentally friendly conversion to biochar, value-add utilization and final sequestration, a carbon removal credit can be issued on several established carbon trading platforms.
