What do you know about Pyroysis of biomass,and does agrichar Its’s product called biochar if sequestered is “Really” carbon negative? Really!

Carbon Sequestration and Agricultural Practices
The climate is changing at a quickening pace, and most climate scientists believe human activity is contributing.
Leading nations of the world are beginning to respond.
The U.S. House of Representatives passed major climate change legislation in 2009 to cap carbon emissions and pay
farmers who sequester and store carbon in the soil. The Chicago Climate Exchange has established a market for
?carbon credits,? where farmers are paid to adopt certain practices believed to sequester or store increased carbon in the
soil. The exchange also pays for practices to reduce emissions of other greenhouse gases, particularly methane.

    I’m going to try to answer this question. The idea behind pyrolysis is that by charring biomass–burning plants without oxygen present–you can take carbon out of plants without it dispersing into the atmosphere as carbon dioxide. The biomass becomes a carbon called biochar, a substance that can increase soil productivity. I’d say that the chemistry of this is convincing–if you don’t have oxygen, you can’t very well form carbon dioxide. By concentrating this carbon as biochar, you subtract it from the environment, meaning that it is carbon-negative.
