Big Table Farm Converts Smoke into Biochar

May 14, 2019

This process has taken us a year of research, talking to scientists, air curtain companies and other industry professionals. We put our vineyard development on hold until we had a solution that fit our values. Now a year later, we are excited to announce the first onsite carbonization of cleared vegetation in an agricultural setting by a Carbonator 500. We are turning what would be just smoke and ash into trapped carbon. Carbonization of the brush is a net negative carbon sequestration of the biomass at Big Table Farm.
