SWEDEN: Climate commis­sion recom­mends use of biochar

Sweden aims to become climate-neutral by 2045 and has had a special commis­sion draw up a stra­tegy for this. The compre­hen­sive report was presented yesterday. On 850 pages, it describes “paths to a climate-friendly future”.

It is not without reason that the Scan­di­na­vian coun­tries are regarded as pioneers in the field of climate protec­tion: in 200 points in the report alone, refe­rence is made to biochar and its poten­tial for carbon storage (CCS). This is still only a recom­men­da­tion to the Swedish government to also promote the recy­cling of resi­dual biomass into biochar in the future and to create incen­tives for farmers to use biochar to natu­rally improve their soils, build up humus and store carbon.

However, the country is already far ahead of its Euro­pean neigh­bors with this recom­men­da­tion: German autho­ri­ties are still ponde­ring whether they should even allow the ground­brea­king new product of biochar on the field – here, the EU has already created facts, at least for organic farming, and offi­cially allowed the appli­ca­tion of biochar as a soil improver/fertilizer.
