The Geoecology Energy Organisation is now promoting the production of biochar, a pure carbon charcoal obtained by burning plant and agricultural waste in confined spaces. It is an extremely potent fertilizer that enriches soil, enhances microorganism growth, and promotes oxygen circulation around plants. The process also sequesters carbon, mitigating global warming.
