Carbon Removal Facilities

Decarbonization Benefits

Using readily available waste biomass feedstock from across the US, Myno’s Carbon Removal Facilities can provide the following decarbonization benefits:

  • Remove 1.2 billion metric tons of CO2e per year by converting waste timber and agricultural residues into biochar.
  • Generate 120 gigawatts of carbon-negative, renewable, baseload electricity.
  • Significantly reduce wildfire risk across the country by producing 140 million tons of biochar per year from forest and agricultural waste. The biochar can be used to:
    • Increase agricultural crop yields and improve drought resilience
    • Reduce the need for carbon-intensive chemical fertilizers
    • Filter stormwater pollution to protect fish and aquatic resources
    • Replace petroleum-based carbon black in tires and plastics
    • Increase efficiency and yield of anaerobic digesters at large dairies
    • Reduce the greenhouse gas emissions of livestock feed
  • Create several hundred thousand good-paying green jobs at our facilities and in adjacent industries.
Myno’s Carbon Removal Facility Highlights

Myno’s carbon removal facilities are carbon-negative, meaning the process of producing biochar and generating renewable, baseload electricity removes and sequesters more carbon than it releases into the atmosphere.

Current practices to reduce waste biomass from timber harvesting, forest thinning, and agricultural production involve traditional slash pile burning, sending unfiltered particulate matter (PM2.5) and other toxic pollution directly into the atmosphere.

Our waste biomass feedstock comes from sustainably sourced wood and agricultural waste, reducing overall climate emissions and wildfire risk in our forests and agricultural sectors.

Carbon removal facilities create a large market for the dried and decaying waste biomass “fuel” that is driving an increase in wildfire risk. Beneficial and economical reuse and harvesting of this material protects carbon stored in the world’s forests.

During the process of producing biochar, the carbon contained in the woody biomass fuel is converted into a stable and solid form of carbon that will not re-enter the atmosphere as carbon dioxide for centuries.

When biochar is applied to soils, it increases water retention and improves drought resilience. Biochar also reduces the need for chemical fertilizers, which improves microbiome health and lowers the greenhouse gas emissions from agricultural production.

Biochar as a carbon removal solution is recognized and supported by the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change.
