The Middle East and Africa Biochar Market was worth USD 0.32 billion in 2021 and estimated to be growing at a CAGR of 13.7%, to reach USD 0.91 billion by 2026.
Biochar is a type of charcoal that is rich in carbon and fine-grained which is obtained by heating organic mass in the absence of oxygen. It’s used as a soil additive as it improves the quality of soil leading to better growth of plants. The rising growth rate of this market can be owed to decreasing soil quality due to increasing food demand and excessive use of chemical fertilizers.
Biochar improves the soil quality by adding rich minerals and nutrients into it. It offers other benefits like removing carbon from the atmosphere. Hence it can be used for absorbing the greenhouse gas CO2 responsible for global warming. It can absorb nutrients from percolating water in the soil. Producing biochar releases energy that can be used to power other processes. It prevents the erosion of soil and absorbs water from the atmosphere into the soil.
