Berlin, Germany – March 27, 2024 – As the urgency of climate challenges mounts, investments in carbon dioxide (CO2) reduction strategies, particularly biochar projects, are becoming critical to corporate sustainability efforts. Biochar, produced through the thermal decomposition of organic material, offers a promising solution by not only sequestering carbon for centuries and potentially decreasing atmospheric CO2, but also enhancing soil health and agricultural productivity. Senken and Exomad Green are thrilled to announce their offtake agreement for the supply of 81,600 tonnes of biochar carbon removal credits between 2025 and 2028. One of the largest biochar deals in the world. 

This collaboration demonstrates the viability and potential of biochar technology as an effective approach for corporations to achieve their sustainability objectives, showcasing how investments in carbon removal technologies can yield significant environmental and social benefits. With the operation based in Concepción, Bolivia, Exomad Green's project highlights the multifaceted advantages of biochar, from reducing health and fire risks associated with open burning to enriching agricultural practices in local indigenous communities. 

Each biochar batch at the Green Concepción facility is uniquely identified and meticulously tracked from production to application, ensuring additional transparency related to Carbon Removal delivery. The project will follow compliance with the Puro Standard, a leading carbon removal standard that provides science-based quantification methodologies for durable carbon removal technologies. Additionally, Senken’s robust due diligence process assisted in reducing risk.
