About the project

PBFH is a pioneering company specializing in Industrial Hemp to biochar for long-term carbon removal from the atmosphere.

We turn specially modified hemp into biochar, a very stable form of carbon. The process is as follows: plants capture carbon during photosynthesis; we extract and stabilise this carbon through a world first state of the art pyrolysis process designed by the University of Technology Sydney; the resulting biochar is buried in the soil, safely storing the carbon out of the atmosphere for hundreds of years.

This allows us to generate high-quality carbon credits, which also include the many co-benefits provided with our model, such as increased crop yields through biochar use in soils and production of renewable electricity from the excess energy of pyrolysis - Syngas/Hydrogen and important social programs

PBFH's aim is to be the largest industrial hemp company in the world and for Papua New Guinea to be the shining beacon for quality carbon removal credits to the world which will positively impact climate and dramatically improve the lives of people in Papua New Guinea.

  • Additionality info

    If one would invest in a biochar production process, the revenue from the biochar will need to be larger than the investment and operation costs of the pyrolysis plant.

    The CORCs will help the business in the sense that it will push the revenue past the costs.
