By May of 2009, the EternaGreen BioRefinery will be in full production, and by June it will be producing 7,000 pounds of biochar per hour. By December, we'll be producing 20,000 pounds per hour. Through the expanded production of biochar, we are bringing new life to the farming industry and the planet.
Denver, CO (PRWEB) March 30, 2009
At a time when the world's climate crisis is becoming ever-more apparent, BioChar Brokers, Inc. now offers the world's first online and retail pre-sales of EternaGreen™ BioChar, a soil amendment that promises to help significantly combat global warming with its numerous benefits to the environment.
Biochar is a fine-grained charcoal high in organic carbon and largely resistant to decomposition. According to the International Biochar Initiative, when used as a soil amendment, biochar reduces the acidity of the soil, increases water retention, and captures carbon dioxide (CO2), making the soil fertile for potentially hundreds to thousands of years.
In addition, EternaGreen™ BioChar can help sequester CO2 and nitrous oxide, absorbing it into the soil and acting as what is called a "carbon sink." This natural process pulls harmful greenhouse gas emissions out of the air and into the ground, safely fertilizing the soil and reducing the need for traditional fertilizer. As a result, biochar has been proven to help increase crop yields by as much as 80-400 percent.
"For the first time, farmers and everyday consumers have access to this unique product that not only enhances crop yields and soil fertility, but also drastically helps the environment," said Taylor Romero, president and co-founder of BioChar Brokers. "Research on biochar as a soil amendment has been going on for more than 30 years, and we are really excited to be able to finally meet the demand of the market."
According to a February 2009 United Nations Environmental Program (UNEP) report on global warming, the world is quickly approaching tipping points for abrupt climate changes, possibly within a few years. The U.N. agency warns that urgent action is needed to avoid catastrophic climate events such as major food and water shortages and shifts in weather patterns.
As one immediate solution to these issues, UNEP suggests focusing on the reduction of black carbon in the atmosphere, which is emitted from incomplete combustion when burning fossil fuels and biomass. Reduction of black carbon emissions will slow atmospheric warming and help avoid abrupt climate changes. According to Durwood Zaelke, president of the Institute for Governance & Sustainable Development, one drastic way of reducing black carbon emissions is by expanding the production of biochar.
EternaGreen™ BioChar plans to do just that, according to Romero. "By May of 2009, the EternaGreen BioRefinery will be in full production, and by June it will be producing 7,000 pounds of biochar per hour. By December, we'll be producing 20,000 pounds per hour. Through the expanded production of biochar, we are bringing new life to the farming industry and the planet."
As a further benefit to the environment, EternaGreen™ BioChar is created by a patented process called CDI Carbonization™ which takes agricultural and municipal waste and converts it into clean energy. The byproduct of this process is biochar. Due to this groundbreaking new energy method, it is expected that the use of the biochar creation process itself will reduce the waste going to landfills by up to 30 percent.
EternaGreen™ BioChar is available for pre-orders at $0.25 per pound by calling 1-877-ETERNA2 or at http://www.BioCharBrokers.com.
