Mantria Carbon Grids for Carbon Sequestration

Commitment by

Mantria Corporation

In 2009, Mantria Corporation committed to help mitigate global warming through the use of their Carbon Fields site, where Mantria will perform trials to prove how biochar, a carbon rich soil amendment, can sequester green house gases from the atmosphere. Once fully proven in Tennessee, Mantria Corporation plans to take this technology to developing nations, such as the Ivory Coast and the Democratic Republic of Congo, enhancing soil fertility and producing crops while simultaneously offsetting carbon emissions. Participating countries will benefit from decentralized waste management, energy production, and useful bioproducts that are produced in the making of biochar.
