Understanding the EU Taxonomy for sustainable activities

The Taxonomy Regulation provides companies, investors and policymakers with definitions of economic activities that can be considered environmentally sustainable, in order to direct private investments toward them. This redirection of investment flows could significantly accelerate the adoption climate-friendly technologies or the scale-up existing ones. Although the IPCC assesses Biochar / PyCCS as one necessary solution … Read more

Climate Concrete

How do we solve the challenges of our time? Do we have to put all our forces into new innovations, or will we also be able to work with what we know – only in a modified way? Might it even be possible to work with materials that still have a high carbon footprint and … Read more

Biochar Video Campaign

In order to reach the 1.5 degree target, carbon sinks like biochar need more attention and support – also from the public. For this purpose, Fachverband Pflanzenkohle e.V. created a video that has been translated into English by the EBI. It shows that it is possible to fetch carbon dioxide out of the air and … Read more

EU Climate Law

A better EU climate law would be more ambitious, separate reduction and mitigation targets and not ignore the most promising carbon sink solution. To tackle the climate crisis, the EU urgently needs not only ambitious reduction targets but also a stringent carbon sink strategy. Without a massive build-up of carbon sinks, it is impossible to … Read more
