ABSTRACT
The article presents an overview of the future condition of biochar methods in Great Britain. It highlights the significance to consider a wide range of options to reduce greenhouse gas emissions, particularly those that will enhance carbon (CO2) capture and sequestration. It further suggests that the removal and sequestration must be a long-term and substantive and will have a low risk of leakage back in the atmosphere.
