Founded in Chadron Nebraska

We started producing biochar on a commercial scale in 2016 at our location in Chadron Nebraska.   Utilizing waste from the Pine Ridge National Forest. 


In 2017 we moved to Laramie Wyoming to have better access to the biochar markets in Colorado as well as abundant wood waste form local sawmills.  


Successful feed trial reducing methane

in 2018 we completed our first feed trial with the University of Nebraska where we saw a 10% reduction in methane after feeding biochar.  This led to the AAAS making a video about our response to global warming.

Moved To 

Laramie, Wyoming
