GLOBAL WARMING

We, as Planet one, “have the purpose of restoring the balance between people and planet”.

If humanity continues with the actual level of emissions to the atmosphere, the Global average temperature could increase 6°C by the year 2100. By capturing and sequestering carbon through the production of biochar, we can restore the balance and avoid further damage to our planet and lead with example to the future generations.

WE HAVE 20 YEARS INSPIRING THE PLANET

We have been working
on this “crazy” idea
for more than 20 years
in 4 continents,
Building Eco-innovative
companies, based on
sustainable innovations
to craft impactful products
and services applying
“first principles” to embody
the transformative power
of nature to inspire

CARBON CYCLE

Our method to address global warming uses one of the most important processes for life on our planet: photosynthesis. Every day, billions of plants use sunlight, water, and carbon dioxide from the air to grow and produce biomass. This means we don’t have to worry about capturing carbon from the air; plants already do that more efficiently than we ever could and at a massive scale. By collecting and stabilizing the biomass produced by plants, we sequester the carbon dioxide they captured and avoid the reemissions of the carbon into the atmosphere. In the end, this leads to a net reduction of carbon dioxide in the earth’s atmosphere, slowing down global warming

Biochar is not only a carbon sink, but is also highly efficient as a soil amendment and can be used in agriculture to achieve:

  • A 20% reduction in water use by increasing the water holding capacity of soils,

 

  • A 20% reduction in fertilizer use by increasing nutrient uptake by plants,

 

  • A 20% increase in crop yields per hectare.

Biochar can also be used to remediate heavy metal contamination in soils. 

BIOCHAR JOURNEY

Source biomass which would have no other use (and is likely to decay or be burned). This includes forestry-based residues, crop residues, waste biomass and manure.

This biomass is transported to a biochar production site and processed by drying and shredding to prepare it for the next step.
Thermodynamical conversion of biomass in an oxygen limiting environment (pyrolysis or gasification).
The primary end-use of biochar is soil application. Other uses may incluide construction materials. We use non-biochar outputs of the process to fuel the production unit

OUR CORE BUSINESS
IS TO RESTORE
THE BALANCE
BETWEEN
PEOPLE AND
PLANET.

SULLANA PROJECT

The Planet One project in Sullana is where we bring our vision to life. In the North of Peru, the agricultural production of sugar, rice, corn, and other crops leads to waste streams consisting of crop residues. By using that biomass as a feedstock to produce biochar, we provide a solution for agricultural waste streams. In addition, we produce a soil amendment with the potential to boost crop yields, improve air quality by avoiding the burning of crop residues, and create employment in the area.

LET’S TRANSFORM
CARBON INTO A SOLUTION
FOR A HEALTHY,
PROSPEROUS
AND GREEN WORLD.

That´s why, we belong to

THREE THINGS TO KNOW ABOUT

OUR PROJECT IN SULLANA:

We have access to large quantities of agricultural waste biomass (bagasse and leaves) that are currently burned as fuel or left on the field to decompose. By turning this waste stream into valuble biochar, we capture and stabilize the carbon present in the biomass and avoid its re emission into the atmosphere.

The pyrolysis technology is a mature technology that allows us to minimize greenhouse gas emissions during the process of biochar production, to use excess heat from the process efficiently and to produce electricity from the syngas that is produced in the process.

In addition, biochar is a key strategy for the remediation of heavy metal contamination in agricultural soils in many parts of Peru. Today, many farmers of cacao, banana and other export crops are facing cadmium concentrations in their soils and crops that put their harvests in danger. Making biochar available for the large scale application and mitigation of this problem can make a crucial difference in keeping farmers in business and protecting this important economic sector for Peru.

THE EARTH IS WHERE WE MAKE OUR STAND.
