Carbon sequestration in the agricultural industry.

Carbon sequestration involves capturing carbon dioxide (CO₂) from the atmosphere and storing it in the soil. This is a crucial method to reduce the amount of CO₂ in the atmosphere and combat global climate change.

Benefits for the soil and agriculture.

Carbon improves soil quality, increases crop yields and reduces the need for insecticide use.

Better soil quality maintains the fertility of agricultural land.

Biochar, a form of carbon sequestration, is used as a soil conditioner and can even be incorporated into building materials such as cement and asphalt.

Impact on water and air purification.

Activated carbon, a product of carbon sequestration, is used in a wide range of applications, such as drinking water purification, food and beverage processing, odor removal, and industrial pollution control.

Stricter rules, growing demand.

The demand for technologies that use activated carbon is increasing worldwide. This is partly due to stricter environmental regulations, such as regulations on per- and polyfluoroalkyl substances (PFAS), which are rapidly tightening in Europe and starting to increase in other regions such as Japan.

Sustainable management and restoration of ecosystems.

Restoring organic soils and preserving existing forests are essential for carbon storage. Effective agricultural practices, including minimizing soil erosion and efficient use of fertilizers, help reduce CO₂ emissions and improve the overall ecosystem.
