Carbo+ is a mobile system for decentralized production of biochar. An approach for the regeneration of degraded soils and for climate-positive agriculture. The small system Carbo+ carbonizes biomass such as green waste, wood or branches into high-quality biochar. The charcoal is an aid for allotment gardeners, community or private gardens. The central property is the ability to bind and hold CO2.

Carbo+ complements the horticultural industry with a valuable tool. With Carbo+, biochar can be used in a decentralized, cost-effective, effective and future-oriented manner. The coal is produced with low emissions, binds harmful greenhouse gases such as CO2 and nitrous oxide and, when used in the soil, helps to upgrade it. The smart construction of the system allows a low-effort handling and could make the use of self-sufficient biochar a standard in soil and compost management.
