Enchar’s mission is clear: we want to help biochar achieve its full potential.


The need to employ large scale carbon dioxide removal technologies is now urgent, as highlighted in the Paris agreement and the latest IPCC report. Biochar – pyrolyzed biomass -  is a readily scalable, growing and affordable CRD technology. What makes biochar unique is the multitude of applications in which it can be efficiently employed without diminishing its carbon sequestration potential. As an additive in construction materials, biochar enables carbon negative cement. In batteries biochar substitutes rare elements, and soil applications increase ecosystem resilience and agricultural yields. This versatility of uses is key for reducing our global carbon footprint.  

Currently the biochar market is fragmented and lacks transparency. To enable network effects and accelerate market development, uncertainty must be reduced. To date, investments in pyrolysis plants face large upfront costs and uncertainty on revenues. For users, uncertainty on the right type of biochar and its effects are big obstacles. Additionally, the limited supply and demand on the market results in high prices for users and reduced sales for producers. Therefore, the market structure is currently the biggest obstacle for the industry to reach potential. 

Enchar’s mission is clear: we want to help biochar achieve its full potential as CDR technology. That means reducing uncertainty for market participants to facilitate rapid market growth and increased carbon removal. We do that by providing a streamlined, central sales and procurement platform to enable easy transactions between users and producers. Scientifically sound recommendations for users to buy the right biochar for their application, and for producers to find the best fitting market segment, will boost the market and enable investments at the scale required to fight our climate crisis.

Enchar is a team of three co-founders with matching areas of expertise, namely in biochar characterization, thermal energies, and the development of digital products.
