Full Circle Biochar selected as a Virgin Pioneer

Full Circle Biochar is one of 11 companies Virgin will support as part of the Virgin Earth Challenge, which Virgin announced Nov. 2, 2011 at the Global Clean Energy Congress in Calgary.

Launched by Sir Richard Branson in February 2007, the Virgin Earth Challenge is a $25 million initiative for the successful commercialisation of ways of taking greenhouse gases out of the atmosphere and keeping them out with no countervailing impacts.

“We are looking forward to working with Virgin to scale biochar in global agricultural markets as it is a big idea with enormous food, water and climate security benefits for the planet,” says Dr. David Shearer, Full Circle Biochar’s CEO and co-founder.
