Stubble burning

Stubble burning, a prevalent agricultural practice in India, contributes significantly to air pollution and climate change, releasing harmful pollutants and greenhouse gases

Alone in Northern India farmers burn about 23 million tonnes of paddy stubble every year.

The gross crop residue potential generated in India is 696.38 million tonnes/year.

The smoke from stubble burning travels as far as 250km (155 miles) away, adding to the toxic air conditions in cities like New Delhi.

Stubble burning has created a massive public health crisis, endangering the health of hundreds of millions of people in India.

PyroCCS addresses these issue through innovative artisanal biochar projects, effectively converting agri-residue into biochar while mitigating environmental impact. Our projects are registered as advanced ArtisanPRO under the Global Artisan C-Sink Standard.

They do not only contribute to solving the pressing “stubble burning” issues but are also providing extra income from carbon credit sales to farmer livelihoods and the produced biochar is improving depleted and degraded soils locally.

Currently PyroCCS is developing four ArtisanPRO projects across the country working with various crop residues and invasive plant species as a biomass source and a potential of over 1 million tons of CO2equivalent removed per year.
