Biochar Framework

About Biochar Framework

Biochar is an essential technology to help scale the engineered Carbon Dioxide Removal (CDR) market and meet the growing demand for carbon removal credits. The majority of delivered CDR credits are from biochar projects, meaning these credits are some of the only CDR credits companies can purchase and retire to compensate for their emissions.

Currently, there’s not sufficient data available for biochar projects to produce a full Sylvera rating. Therefore, we have published this paper to help biochar project developers and buyers understand how we would approach assessing biochar projects.
