BETTER SOIL FOR
Building Drought Resistent and Fertile Humus for Humanity and the Climate.
With yield-increasing fertilizer made from plant charcoal, we regenerate soils in areas where people are first affected by the consequences of the climate crisis and where the yield gap is the largest.
CREATING OPPORTUNITIES WITH TERRA PRETA
We promote and advance technologies to produce Terra Preta, which is an ecological humus that contains biochar, which improves the soil structure. It has been scientifically proven to sequester CO2.
Through incentivizing local communities to participate in a profitable agricultural enterprise and empowering them to generate income through Carbon Credits, we facilitate economic and environmental growth. Our innovative systems offer technical solutions that enable individuals to utilize crop residues as a valuable resource. Together, we strive to enhance the lives of local communities while actively combating climate change.
GREAT IMPACT IN A
BIOCHAR FOR BETTER SOIL
Terra Preta stands as a groundbreaking solution that brings about a remarkable enhancement in soil quality. Through the integration of our carefully crafted biochar, the core element of Terra Preta, into the soil, we witness a remarkable improvement in fertility, structure, and water retention capacity. The application of our biochar has led to a substantial increase in the fertility of the humus. By combining augmented nutrient availability for plants, heightened microbial activity, and reduced soil erosion, we have achieved up to four times greater yields compared to non-treated soil.
OPPORTUNITIES FOR LOCAL PEOPLE
We provide our local partners with more than just the technology and expertise to produce Terra Preta. We also offer them the opportunity to share in the profits of the CO2 certificates. This approach empowers them to be a part of a market that was previously inaccessible to them. By sharing the benefits of carbon credits, we foster a mutually beneficial partnership that not only helps combat climate change but also uplifts the livelihoods of our valued partners.
COMBATING CLIMATE CHANGE
Our process not only brings direct benefits to the local communities but also plays a vital role in the global fight against climate change. By utilizing biological waste to create our biochar, we prevent the release of greenhouse gases into the atmosphere that would have otherwise occurred through burning or natural decay. Through our innovative processes, carbon is transformed into a stable state and permanently sequestered in the soil. This carbon sequestration helps to offset carbon emissions, making a significant contribution to mitigating climate change and creating a more sustainable future for our planet.
TECHNOLOGY FOR BETTER AGRICULTURE
The Kontiki method is a time-honored technique originating from South America, built upon the concept of the Flame Curtain. This specialized pyrolytic process is skillfully employed to convert biomass into valuable biochar. Notably, the method stands out for its ingenious use of a flame barrier, contributing to a uniform burn and minimizing emissions.
SUNNA S is an affordable and user-friendly Pyrolysis system based on the Top-lit-up-draft Method. With remarkable efficiency, it can efficiently convert approximately 20 kg of harvest residue into 7 kg of premium biochar in just 60 minutes. The heart of our system is a modified standard steel barrel, carefully designed to thermally transform the raw material. Sunna S is a game-changer in the field of biochar production, offering an accessible and efficient solution for turning waste into a valuable resource.
In response to the rapidly increasing demand for biochar as a cooking fuel and recognizing the immense potential of Terra Preta, we developed SUNNA L. The closed batch process employed by Sunna L brings forth several benefits, starting with a wider range of input materials, enhancing the versatility of the system. In total up to 300kg of biomass can be created in one charge. Moreover, Sunna L goes the extra mile by recycling process gases, making it an even more efficient.
