     Climate change is one of the biggest challenges facing humanity today. The burning of fossil fuels, deforestation, and other human activities have led to an increase in carbon dioxide levels in the atmosphere, causing global temperatures to rise. To combat this problem, Locoal plans to sink over 30 million tons of carbon as biochar, annually by 2028.

     Our mission to sink over 30 million annual tons of carbon is an ambitious and innovative approach to carbon sequestration. By using our intelligent, modular pyrolysis machine and carbon credits, we aim to provide a sustainable solution to organic waste management while mitigating climate change. The benefits of this mission are numerous, including improved soil health, economic opportunities, and a reduction in greenhouse gas emissions.

     We at Locoal are proud to share our vision of a greener and cleaner future for all. Our innovative technology harnesses the power of renewable energy sources to reduce carbon emissions and combat climate change. We believe that together, we can make a difference and create a more sustainable world for ourselves and generations to come. Thank you for your support and interest in our mission.

What is Biochar?

Biochar is a type of charcoal that is produced through the process of pyrolysis. Pyrolysis is a process that involves heating organic materials in the absence of oxygen. This process produces a solid substance that can be used as a soil amendment. Biochar has a high carbon content, making it an ideal material for carbon sequestration.

How Does Locoal Plan to Sink Carbon as Biochar?

Locoal is building an intelligent, modular pyrolysis machine that will produce biochar from organic waste materials. The machine will send data on machine operations and emissions to the cloud, allowing Locoal to monitor and optimize the process in real-time. The biochar produced by the machine will be sold as a soil amendment to farmers, gardeners, and other agricultural users.

What is a Carbon Credit?

A carbon credit is a tradable certificate that represents the sequestration of one tonne of carbon dioxide or an equivalent greenhouse gas. Carbon credits are used as a market-based mechanism to reduce the global emissions of greenhouse gases and to incentivize low-carbon development. Carbon credits can be generated by projects that either avoid, reduce or sequester emissions, such as renewable energy, energy efficiency, or forest conservation. Carbon credits can be sold or traded in various markets, such as voluntary, compliance, or sectoral markets, depending on the type and quality of the credits.
