Avoid, Sequester and Drawdown
Myno’s DCC facilities produce carbon negative electricity and biochar.
Myno sequesters carbon by producing biochar; a stable form of carbon that can endure in soil for millennia. We reduce wildfire risk by using forest biomass residuals such as slash piles, as a pyrolysis feedstock. GHG emissions caused by the natural decomposition of this material are thus avoided. Clean electricity is generated in the process.
Biochar facilitates accelerated drawdown by improving soil health. It improves yields, water retention in the soils, and drought resilience. Biochar is also an excellent water filtration medium, ideally suited to green infrastructure projects. Widespread introduction of biochar into the agribusiness sector would create a material reduction in GHG emissions.
