Let's compare biochar production from wood with burning wood: 1000 tonnes of biochar sequester 3000 tonnes of CO2 and the production of said biochar creates 5000 MWh of energy as heat, requiring 10625 solid cubic meters of wood 10625 solid cubic meters of wood would produce 21356 MWh of energy as heat if directly burned, but if wood is burned, it retains ...

Deliberate biochar production differs from open burning in two important ways. The first is oxygen availability as you said. Limiting the amount of oxygen means far more of the biomass ends up as solid carbon rather than CO2. The second is particulate pollution. Burning biomass always produces particulates, but open burning is worse than burning in a ...
