Carbon Consulting LLC is committed to sustainable development and is at the forefront of developing innovative strategies to address the challenges of climate change.
Carbon Consulting LLC supports activities that will deliver a billion tons of CO2 offset. We are doing this both through our high quality research and consulting activities as well as through investing strategically in opportunities that enable the emerging biochar industry to commoditize the carbon assets it creates and to aggregate and trade these on the carbon markets.
What is Biochar?
Created through a process called pyrolysis, biochar locks in and stabilizes carbon that decomposing plant biomass would otherwise release back into the atmosphere as CO2.
In pyrolysis, biomass is heated in an oxygen-deprived environment, causing a thermal decomposition of the plant matter. Beyond the benefits of capturing carbon, pyrolysis itself can be used to deliver energy products like heat and electricity while producing biochar.
This stabilized form of carbon can be returned to the earth, where it continues to store carbon while improving soil productivity. Biochar can be used in a range of situations, from potting soil to turf grass applications. By using biochar in their fields, farmers can increase agricultural production without increasing cropland.
Carbon Consulting LLC's founder, John Gaunt, is a recognized innovator and leader in biochar research, soil science and carbon markets.
Based in New York, Carbon Consulting LLC's professional network encompasses environmental scientists, venture capital investors, project developers, attorneys, economists, social scientists, and business and policy strategists, most with advanced degrees and significant industry and consulting experience.
