Biochar-based products help to produce healthy humus for the soil, neutralize the soil and maintain its pH value. They also increase water holding capacity of the soil and improve seed germination and soil resistance to fungus and insects. Due to these crucial reasons, the global biochar market is witnessing a rapid growth rate in recent years. Therefore, biochar can be strategically used in the soil amendment procedure. This simultaneous production of bioenergy, carbon sequestration along with soil & water quality improvement creates a win-win scenario for the biochar market.

Present technological uncertainty, financial constraints, lack of consumer awareness and stringent governmental regulation, especially in Europe are some of the restraints for the biochar market growth. However, biochar companies have entered into biochar production by comprehending the scalability and best available technology based on the cost benefit analysis to ensure maximum biochar production at a minimal cost. Further, as the market volume will increase, the price and the associated cost involved will decrease, which will ease off present financial constraints. To develop consumer awareness, several educational programs and conferences have been initiated, involving local farmers, distributors, scientists and investors.

The opportunity associated with biochar lies with its environmental friendly characteristics such as carbon sequestration, water holding capacity and soil enhancement. Additionally, the biochar industry can also provide opportunity for employment alongwith the provision of better quality food, thus ensuring better health of the consumers.
