Aries GREEN® is a high carbon content biochar for use as an all-natural soil conditioner and agricultural soil amendment, fuel, a filtering agent, and a base material for the production of fabric, carpet, rubber, plastic, and carbon black.
When biochar is added to plants and crops, it returns carbon to the soil. It also improves plant life by retaining water due to the carbon content of the product. Biochar varies depending on what it is made from and how it is made. Not all biochar is created equal. Certification processes like these keep the public and the planet safe.
Biochar used as a soil conditioner has the potential to:
- Capture excess nitrogen and toxins – protecting waterways and groundwater quality;
- In making biochar via gasification, create an alternative energy source for generating heat and power, and valuable by-products of syngas and bio-fuels, thereby reducing CO2 emissions;
- Divert waste wood from local landfills and fees associated with its disposal;
- Reduce the need for (and use of) fossil-fuels and conventional fertilizers;
- Turn biomass and biowaste into value-added products while creating jobs, and
- Safely sequester CO2 for thousands of years, which slows climate change.
Third-party verification for a product’s biobased content is administered through the USDA BioPreferred Program, an initiative created by the 2002 Farm Bill (and most recently expanded by the 2014 Farm Bill). One of the goals of the program is to increase the development, purchase, and use of biobased products.
