Project name: Reduce greenhouse gas emissions of the agricultural sector by producing biochar from animal-derived organic waste.
Entity information: National Innovative Initiative NGO
Partner entities: Agricultural Innovation Consortium, Mongolian University of Life Science
Partnership profile: Develop environmentally friendly innovative products and strengthen local citizens capabilities.
Project objective: Reduce GHG emissions and increase herders’ income by processing and producing biochar from animal-derived organic waste.
Planned activities: Produce multiple products out of the organic waste of the animal husbandry sector the animal cud by using the modern pyrolysis methods. Reduce GHG emissions in cooperation with the herders.
Proposed solutions: The use of high-cost chemical fertilizers for vegetable cultivation is adversely affecting the health and safety of the food. By implementing new soil fertilization products processed from organic waste, we will enable the agrarians to produce high-yielding healthy food using natural and eco-friendly fertilizers in their cultivation. A healthier and more pleasant environment will be created as biochar production uses biodegradable fertilizers such as organic manure, sawdust, wood chips, and burnt wood, which pollute the environment, soil, and air and negatively impact health.
