Horticultural use

Biochar as peat substitute

Modern horticulture requires dependable, quality-assured growing media. Sphagnum peat has been the most important constituent of growing media for several decades. However, the ecological value of peat bogs is increasingly recognized and peat is not considered to be a renewable resource.

Our biochar is produced from renewable resources and can be used as a growing media.
