So, what is pflanzenkohle?

Pflanzenkohle, also known as biochar, is a highly porous and stable form of charcoal made from plant material that has been heated in the absence of oxygen through a process called pyrolysis. It is an environmentally friendly and sustainable ingredient that can be used in a variety of ways, including as a soil amendment to improve plant growth and health, a water filtration media to remove impurities, and even as a dietary supplement for animals to improve digestion and nutrient absorption. Pflanzenkohle is also believed to help sequester carbon in the soil, making it a valuable tool in the fight against climate change.
