Biochar as key material for the future of civilisation

Biochar is much too valuable for it to be just tilled into soil without having used it at least once for more beneficial purposes giving this plant-based raw material the chance to make the most of its positive properties. Whether as storage for volatile nutrients, as an adsorber in functional clothing, as insulation in the building industry, as energy storage in batteries, as a filter in a sewage plant, as 3D-printer ink, as a silage agent or as a feed supplement, biochar can be used in various cascades.
