About Sustainable Thinking Scotland CIC

With our green waste recycling project, we aim to create a circular economy around biochar - stable carbon obtained from 'baking' biomass.

We produce this from local wood waste, providing significant carbon savings of 3 tCO2e removed for each tonne we convert, and the finished biochar product can be used to tackle several agricultural, ecological, and environmental issues.

We are currently developing a biochar which can help prevent toxic algae blooms in water, using biochar to 'soak up' the nutrient pollution it uses to grow, so we can use the nutrients to grow more food in our STS Foodbank Farm.
