Smart Soil holds the key not only to improving agricultural productivity, but alsomaking significant contributions to climate mitigation. In climate-smart urbanfarming precinct there will be smart soil production area targeting dense urbanareas, poor with soil and leftover spaces near built residential district.
In this study, the construction of a strategic pathway to utilize pyrolysistechnology and biochar use in agriculture will be actualized with potential andfeasible utilization techniques.
Smart soil produced in climate-smart urban farming precinct will also be used inZoo green car park area enriching the capacity of green shady structures.
Biochar sequestration: given a certain amount of carbon that cycles annually through plants, half ofit can be taken out of its natural cycle and sequestered in a much slower biocharcycle (see graphic). By withdrawing organic carbon from the cycle ofphotosynthesis and decomposition biochar.
The biomass is converted into biochar and because of its stability sequesters allbut 5 percent of the carbon (in this illustration) in the soil and hence has theability to provide a carbon negative source of energy.
This NBS creates some modifications in the environment so there are some disadvantages of removing it in the future.
The period of recovery of the initial economic investment of the NBS is between 1 and 5 years.
