Seedstock.com Startup Profile: Interra Energy Forges Path to Sustainable Agriculture and Energy with Biochar
After Interra Energy, Inc. President Thomas Del Monte started researching the “carbon negative” energy process of biochar used for sustainable agriculture, he knew he was onto something big. . .
A few excerpts:
- “It’s a very important climate change and atmosphere carbon dioxide tool,” Del Monte said. “It’s the only one that actually takes carbon out of the atmosphere, not just putting out less.”
- “There’s a lot of technology already out there about making electricity or power out of biomass, but there really wasn’t anything that was optimizing for charcoal production and producing a gas of good enough quality to generate power with,” Del Monte said.
- From Dean Libs, owner of the edible garden company Dean’s Greens: “Everything in (my) garden’s growing healthy,” Libs said, noting that he has been using it for a few months now. “I plan to have every garden that I build or maintain or consult for use their biochar and use it on a consistent basis.”
