French Carbon

About French Carbon

French Carbon is a climate venture specializing in long-term removal of carbon from the atmosphere.

We convert agricultural waste into biochar, a durable form of carbon, through the following process: plants absorb carbon during photosynthesis; we extract and stabilize this carbon through pyrolysis; the resulting biochar is buried in soil, securely storing carbon away from the atmosphere for hundreds of years.

This allows us to produce high-quality carbon credits that also include additional benefits such as improved crop yields from using biochar in soil and the production of renewable energy from the surplus heat generated in the pyrolysis process.

French Carbon's goal is to bring biochar at a large scale in tropical areas for the benefit of both the climate and people.

French Carbon addresses 3 critical challenges simultaneously.

Fighting climate change

  • Long-term, measurable and certified carbon removal
  • Avoided greenhouse gas emissions

Promoting sustainable agriculture

  • Long-term, measurable and certified carbon removal
  • Avoided greenhouse gas emissions

Enhancing access to energy

  • Enhancing soil quality
  • Boosting crop output and farmer income
  • Lessening reliance on synthetic fertilizers

French pollution standards

Low NOx

Low NOx refers to reduced nitrogen oxides emissions from combustion processes, aimed at improving air quality and protecting public health.

Low SOx

Low SOx means reduced levels of sulfur oxides emissions from combustion processes, such as power plants or boilers. The goal is to minimize their negative impact on air quality and public health.

Low ppm

Low ppm means a low concentration of a substance in a mixture, often used in industries like water treatment, air quality monitoring, and food testing to indicate a low level of impurities or contaminants. The lower the ppm, the less of the substance is present.
