BioDea Biochar as a soil improver

BioDea Biochar is a high quality class I vegetable carbon that, according to Legislative Decree 75/2010, is qualitatively better due to its low ash content and high carbon content. BioDea Biochar is a soil improver able to improve the chemical, physical and microbiological structure of the soil by creating a stable and porous one, thanks to which it is possible to reduce the frequency and amount of water required for irrigation. In addition, its high specific surface that is similar to clay, promotes the absorption and ion exchange of nutrients.

BioDea Biochar improves soil

  • It promotes aeration, drainage and resistance to compaction;
  • It provides an optimal environment for the proliferation of microbial communities, revitalizing and increasing the transformation of organic residues into humus;
  • It reduces the action of pollutants thanks to its high adsorbing and filtering capacity.


BioDea Biochar helps the plant

  • It increases the ion exchange capacity between the soil and the roots as well as the availability and assimilation of nutrients;
  • It increases the available water content (AWC) by over 35%, reducing irrigation needs and water stress.

CO2 Sequestration

Important tool for climate change mitigation, it incorporates stable carbon into the soil for hundreds of years by sequestering 3 tons of CO2 per ton used.

Ion Exchange Capacity

Thanks to its high specific surface that is similar to clay, it guarantees a high cationic and anionic exchange capacity capable of providing micro and macro elements.

Relives salt stress

Biochar can be used, through sodium adsorption, to relieve osmotic stress and to enrich the circulating solution of potassium, calcium and magnesium.

Biochar and useful microorganisms

The high porosity of the biochar guarantees an ideal habitat for the development of microorganisms in the soil useful for the transformation of organic and inorganic substances into assimilable elements.
