No More Slash & Burn

A fully funded solution
The Problem
How it works

The CarbonThink financial business model is helping erradicate the slash and burn issue by integrating a global network of companies and individuals to help fund the solution. We pay farmers for their waste biomass and then create biochar. Every ton of biochar contains 2 tons of CO2. This presents a promising solution to mitigate the pervasive issue of slash-and-burn agriculture in Thailand.

The Problem
Farmer Prosperity

Slash and burn is essentially an economic issue. As farmers revenues and profits are squeezed they are forced to cut costs and seek savings. Burning crop waste is simply cheaper and brings some small nutrient benefits. However, CarbonThink farmers commit to a no burn policy and in return, we buy all their biomass, bringing additional guaranteed profits to farmers through our contract purchase programmes These bring security and increased propserity to farmers and their families.

How It Works

waste biomass.png

Farmers grow crops


We take their waste biomass, so no slash and burn


It is turned into biochar which contains CO2


Each ton of CO2 can be sold as a carbon credit

Global corporations and individuals buy the carbon credits


This money is shared with the farmers

Reduce Costs
Carbon Removal

It's essential to reduce carbon footprints, but to deal with unavoidable carbon emisions, removal involves actively extracting carbon dioxide from the atmosphere. Carbon offsetting compensates for emissions by investing in projects that reduce an equivalent amount of greenhouse gases elsewhere. CarbonThink focus on removal directly which reduces your carbon footprint, an approach that is crucial in addressing climate change as it actively reduces atmospheric CO2 promoting global sustainability.

Increase Yields

Several studies provide evidence that biochar-based fertilizers can generate increased yields. A meta-analysis found that biochar-based fertilizers led to a significant increase in crop yield, suggesting that biochar enhances fertilizer use efficiency to a larger extent than conventional methods. Furthermore, the application of biochar-based fertilizers has been demonstrated to be more effective in improving soil properties and crop yields compared to the exclusive application of pure biochar or traditional fertilizers.

Black Soil

Biochar-based fertilizers offer several benefits in agriculture:

  • Enhanced Soil Fertility

  • Improved Water Retention

  • Carbon Sequestration

  • Reduced Greenhouse Gas Emissions

  • Increased Microbial Activity

  • Mitigation of Soil Contaminants

  • Promotion of Sustainable Agriculture

  • Adaptation to Climate Change

  • Increased Crop Yield

  • Long-Term Soil Improvement


Globlocalisation, a fusion of "global" and "localisation," signifies the synergy between global and local dynamics. It underscores the importance of balancing global interconnectedness with local responsiveness, promoting sustainability, cultural diversity, and shared prosperity. This concept advocates for adapting global innovations to meet local needs, recognizing the unique contributions of different regions in the global context.

Biochar-based fertilizer operates on the science of biochar, a carbon-rich material derived from organic matter through pyrolysis. Acting as a stable carbon sink, biochar enhances soil fertility and structure, while its porous composition supports beneficial microorganisms. With high nutrient retention capabilities, biochar gradually releases nutrients to plants, reducing leaching and promoting sustainable crop growth. Its water retention properties improve soil resilience to drought, and its carbon sequestration contributes to climate change mitigation, making biochar a versatile solution for sustainable agriculture.
