  • Cities who are already using biochar
  • Creating carbon sinks in your city
  • The climate impact of biochar

New biochar market analysis released in Danish-Swedish Interreg-funded project GreaterBio

The first publication from the Danish-Swedish interreg-funded project GreaterBio has now been released. It is a market analysis of the biochar market that has been conducted by 2050 Consulting and NSR. The analysis has a focus on the near-future development of the Nordic region biochar market with a focus on Sweden and Denmark, but include many perspectives about the expected development that will be relevant in general.

The analysis include current situation mapping, expectations for near-future developments and recommendations for biochar stakeholders – producers, users etc. about where to focus their short-, middle- and long-term efforts in this regard.

There are many active members of the Nordic Biochar Network among the authors of the analysis, and a Nordic Biochar Network webinar about the biochar market analysis is expected to take place later in the autumn 2021.

The analysis is written in Swedish and includes a Danish as well as a Swedish summary. You can download the market analysis in pdf-format from 2050’s website for free.
