ECOERA is proud to announce the collaboration in a world-unique project on carbon negative district heating from agricultural residues. The project is supported by the Swedish Government through their financing system Klimatklivet (The Climate Step). This will allow ECOERA to market biochar in larger quantities and gain industrial capacity for our carbon sequestration service BIOSFAIR(TM). The carbon sink capacity available to customers will be in tens of thousands of tonnes over the coming ten years. We are standing by to provide biochar products and climate compensation for organisations and private individuals that want to erase their carbon footprint.
The Visual Water Hydroponics installation is using ECOERA Biochar for nutrient capture. The installation is demonstrated at Frihamnen in Gothenburg Sweden. Read more on their website and check out more of their nice pictures of the system.
The competition Wheat Master (Vetemästaren) is underway – ECOERA and Skånefrö adds biochar to the table in a bold move to help the wheat cope with any coming summer drought. It is actually too late to try the biochar, but we chose to take this chance says Sven-Olof Bernhoff at Skånefrö AB. Next time we are the competition will have biochar already loaded into the soil prior to sowing. This will be an exciting trial anyways.
ECOERA and swedish seed company Skånefrö have since long been partnering in conducting the biochar trials and more news about these will come during this spring.

The Green Roof Institute has presented their report on how to use the Ecoera biochar in green roof installations. Their work was concluded to be an innovative solution for green roof installations, by using biochar as a green roof substrate. Ecoera is proud to have been the biochar and Water Testing supplier and knowledge partner for their biochar green roof installation.
“Biochar is a very interesting product of us at Green Roof Institute – both for planting at ground level and as substrate for a green roof!” says Jonathan Malmberg, director at the Green Roof Institute.

Through a PhD research project run at the Swedish University of Agricultural Sciences (SLU), by researcher Masud Parvage, eleven soils were amended with biochar provided from EcoEra based upon bioagropellets from the BIOAGRO system in Sweden. When the 11 soils were amended with wheat residue biochar, the water-soluble P concentrations increased in most soils from 11% to 253 %. The water-soluble P added through the biochar was retained (33–100 %) showing a possible way of using biochar to prevent leakage of valuable phosphorus from the soil.

EcoEra CEO David Andersson is part of the International Biochar Initiative panel for development of a Biochar Carbon Stability Test for Carbon Market Protocol Development. This panel will form a protocol for a more uniform way of measuring biochar carbon stability. EcoEra will provide with our knowledge of practical voluntary carbon offsets using biochar as well as the current audit system in the Biosfair(TM) platform.
We are very proud and happy to have the honor to be in one of the leading aluminium guttering companies in the UK with Artister för Miljön (Artists for the Environment) – where we are one of the CO2 sequestration providers for this fine bunch of people.
