Winrock’s American Carbon Registry (ACR) recently announced an open public comment period and is seeking stakeholder feedback on a voluntary carbon offset quantification methodology for Emissions Reductions from Biochar Projects.
Biochar is produced through the pyrolysis of biomass. The methodology quantifies and credits both the avoided emissions from combustion or decomposition of biomass in the baseline and enhanced carbon sequestration at sites where biochar is applied. Under the methodology, biochar may be produced from any biomass residues from forestry and agriculture, municipal solid wastes, and other biomass-based materials approved for use under the International Biochar Initiative’s IBI Biochar Standards (2013) provided such feedstocks also meet sustainability criteria specified in the methodology.
Join the ACR webinar to learn more about and provide feedback on eligible activities as well as baseline and emission reduction quantification under the methodology. Presentations will be made by methodology developers Debbie Reed and Stefan Jirka of the International Biochar Initiative, Teresa Koper of The Climate Trust and Keith Driver of The Prasino Group as well as by Lauren Nichols of ACR.
