Biochar is charcoal which is largely deployed in agricultural amendments and is produced by heating biomass in a low oxygen environment. Sustainable biochar implementation can reduce approximately 12% of greenhouse gas emission on annual basis. According to International Biochar Initiative, biochar can help to reduce 106 metric tons of greenhouse gas emission over the course of 100 years. Thus, biochars are largely viewed as a potential source to facilitate additional revenue benefits in carbon trading market. The global biochar market is estimated to have a CAGR of 13.2% during the forecast years 2016-2023.
Biochar has many agricultural benefits, it increases crop production, it retains moisture and helps plants during drought and it replenishes exhausted or marginal soil. It also increases water quality by increasing soil retention of nutrients. Biochar is gaining grip in the market due to its properties. Besides being a soil amendment material, biochar is also an easy and sustainable way to handle agricultural waste. Biochar is the most efficient solution for the management of the manure from birds and farm animals. In addition, biochar is being effectively used as an important material for climate conservation as biochar has properties to reduce GHG (Greenhouse Gas) emissions.
Surging consumption of organic food, rising demand for soil productivity enhancement products, increasing adoption of environment friendly agricultural practicesare drivers for the global biochar market. Increasing consumption of organic food, growing awareness related to advantage of biochar as soil amendment are the key factors boosting the market. Increasing importance of biochar in livestock farming is increasing the market globally. Biochar is primarily used in agriculture to enhance fertility of the soil, improve plant growth and provide crop nutrition. Therefore, it has gained popularity in livestock farming as an animal feed. Strict government regulations, increase in governments initiative areanother factors driving the market. Increasing environmental pollution and rise in global warming has increased the demand of market globally. In crop processing facility the residue of crop is treated to develop the Biochar. The residue of rice crop is the most effective residue among all crops. It contains all the essential bacteria which helps in creating biochar. It helps in faster decomposition of raw material and in process of biochar. Due to high conversion rate the biochar provide high strength to the soil and provide high yield power. As per the research conducted by biochar-international organization, when biochar was mixed with locally sourced nutrients and the mixture was applied to the soil around mature and semi mature trees, under the leaf latter and around the drip line for twelve better products and healthier trees were obtained. Composting and manure management is one of the most beneficial feature provided through biochar. Many of the sources such as plant and agriculture based residues help in producing manure and also help in upgrading quality of land, enhances food security and avoids the cost of disposal.
Some factors restraining the market growth globally are the risks involved with heavy metal and VOC contamination, stringent government policy and regulations, risk of respiratory diseases during deployment of biochar.
