Efforts to control the release of greenhouse gas emissions into the atmosphere have included a number of options for sequestration and storage of carbon dioxide. About 10 percent of the EU's carbon emissions could be offset by more productive use of biomass and crop residues through pyrolysis. This would provide stable carbon in the form of 'biochar', that could be used as a soil improver, and as a source for other carbon uses such as construction. Since this technology is fully developed, the author argues, it must be added to the armoury of weapons against climate change, and deployed without delay.
