Project Summary / Description:
re:char was founded to commercialize biochar production technology and educate farmers on carbon negative practices. The company's founder has spent over a decade working on global agricultural carbon sequestration projects. Our first projects were in Western Kenya in collaboration with a local agricultural NGO. We believe that agriculture represents the largest carbon sink worldwide with the potential for gigaton-scale impact. We also believe that biochar represents the lowest cost option (per ton of CO2) for sequestering atmospheric carbon.

Impact on Underrepresented Groups:
Our team is made up of employees from the US, EU and rural Kenya. Our Kenya team, in particular, is primarily made up of female sales/support agents from local villages. These women represent a high degree of economic diversity, many coming from a subsistence farming background. We focus on empowerment and work to identify and support emerging community leaders.
