Biochar is a valuable soil enhancer that can be used to hold carbon and improve fertility of arable soil. With large-scale usage, it can aid in significant reduction of carbon emission from natural as well as industrial sources. Biochar can also be used for enhancing the quality of water as it can absorb agrochemicals and soil nutrients that otherwise get mixed with usable water and render it polluted. Biochar can also be used as a fuel.

The excellent growth prospects of biochar are majorly supported by its desired use as a carbon sink owing to its carbon sequestration ability. Use of biochar as a way to reduce carbon levels on the environment makes for one of the most common applications of the material and is expected to provide a huge boost to the U.S. biochar market over the coming years. Exploring the uses of biochar in the fields of wastewater management and energy production is one of the most lucrative business opportunities in the U.S. biochar market. However, presently the research and development in these sectors is restricted to government financing and will require persistent efforts from biochar companies in making the most of the untapped opportunities.

The U.S. market for biochar is restrained majorly by the lack of consumer awareness regarding the effectiveness of biochar and the high production costs of biochar. These challenges can be resolved through strategies aimed at making general consumers more aware of the several benefits of the material and the entry of new companies in the marketplace. A larger competitive landscape will help the U.S. biochar market develop healthy competition, boost innovation in terms of production techniques, and bring down production prices.

Some of the most influential vendors in the U.S. biochar market are Vega Biofuels, Three Dimensional Timberlands, LLC, Hawaii Biochar Products, LLC, Victory Gasworks, Inc., BioChar Products, Tolero Energy, LLC, New England Biochar, LLC, Phoenix Energy, Genesis Industries, LLC, and CharGrow, LLC.
