- Design 
The project aims at raising the awareness and promoting Biochar. The project has culminated in a cooking stove specifically designed for the “urban farming hub” Losæter in Oslo, with the potential of further commercialization. The stove is designed to efficiently gasify all types biomass or garden waste, while transforming it into charcoal As the seriousness of our climate situation is starting to sink in, plans to cut emissions are being discussed. But few are talking about how we can reduce the huge buildup of gases we already have in our atmosphere. There are very few viable ways of capturing CO2, but biochar one. By storing charcoal made from biomass in our soils, we effectively take carbon out of the natural loop - in that way we are capturing and sequestering CO2 from our atmosphere.
