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.
AMORTISATION: Short term/Medium term/Long term/No amortization
The period of recovery of the initial economic investment of the NBS is between 1 and 5 years.
