The Path to a Sustainable Future

High Plains Biochar is creating the first biochar co-op in which members can generate income from carbon credits by producing biochar. High Plains Biochar’s proprietary carbon-negative technology enables anyone with a waste stream (such as wood chips) to create both heat and biochar, a charcoal-like substance typically used as a soil amendment. The co-op will remotely monitor the amount of carbon that is produced, verify with blockchain technology and distribute carbon-credit payments to individual member producers. High Plains Biochar is currently operating a pilot unit to demonstrate how the technology runs on 75% less energy, and plans to launch the co-op in late 2021.


Better for Farmers, Better for the Planet

Our technology allows farms to utilize waste that they have on site while converting it into biochar which can be used as a soil amendment where it's sequestered for thousands of years.

Innovation - Driven Solutions

Carbon credit markets are another way for farms to generate income from sustainable practices.


Data-Powered Agriculture

Our remote operation feature allows users to monitor equipment from anywhere with an internet connection while also allowing us to verify the carbon credits generated.

Next Generation Technologies

Converting biomass into heat, biochar, and carbon credits has never been easier as our technology empowers individuals and groups to remove carbon from the atmosphere.
