Biochar making a social impact in Central America

Biochar Bob Goes to Costa Rica

On the beach, in the jungle, and tucked in between mountains, biochar-producing cookstoves are making an impact in homes and soils across Costa Rica. These low-emission, high efficiency cookstoves can burn alternative fuels like farm waste or bamboo while simultaneously producing a biochar end-product. When biochar is applied to soils, it enhances its ability to hold water and nutrients longer and naturally enhance disease resistance–not to mention that it lasts for centuries!

Join Biochar Bob as he crisscrosses Costa Rica to learn how biochar adoption is creating a wave of social impact.
