Growing interest in Carbon Removal & Reduced Smoke

Biochar added to retain water for coffee plants
Biochar added to retain water for coffee plants

The Coffee and Agroforestry projects in Thailand continue to make steady progress. The coffee cooperative has been plowing the baren hillsides to prepare the soil.  Our manager, Aom, set up tests with larger, deeper trenches to pyrolyze the volume of biomass.  After several tries, the system worked and the team made 10 tons of biochar using corn cob and husk waste. They are adding biochar to the soil to absorb water and prevent the flooding that has started in the villages from the bare mountainsides.

As the Carbon Removal Markets evolve we have daily queries from near and far.  Warm Heart continues to work with farmers' network organizations around the world to test new feedstocks for carbon content and review ways to make biochar from different feedstocks. In Indonesia, we've looked at coconut husks, in Malaysia Palm waste, and in Thailand macadamia nut shells. Each presents different issues with paralysis and carbon content.

The European Carbon Certificate standard for Tropical Farmers is still evolving and Warm Heart continues to provide input from our farmers in the field as well as our network partners leading the farmers. As part of the standard, the smallholder farmers commit to stop open-field burning in their fields.  As more farmers reap the benefits in their farms, we gain in our air.

You make this all possible. Please continue to support our training and the extension of biochar adoption for carbon removal and smoke reduction. 

Thank you!

Dana, Evelind, Michael, and the Warm Heart Biochar Team.
