Opportunities in the Biochar Value Chain

Conventional farm practices have damaged our soils, crippling the farmers ability to produce healthy crops in large quantities. Their current state is further worsened by the unpredictable weather patterns caused by climate change.  Farmers lack access to organic fertilizers such as biochar to help heal their degraded soils, presenting an urgent problem that we can solve.

Akili is already involved in the production and experimentation of biochar, with its effectiveness in enriching degraded soil already proven. Other than creating valuable organic fertilizers for our farmers, biochar is a valuable commodity in earning carbon credits. Additionally, it creates opportunities through setting up biochar production centers and training programs, production of biochar research papers and manuals, biochar- based water filters, etc
