BC Biocarbon and Ripple Announce $6.7M CAD Purchase of Biochar Carbon Removal Credits

Multi-Year Agreement to Supply High-Quality Verified CO2 Removal Certificates

MCBRIDE, BC, CANADA, February 2, 2023 / -- BC Biocarbon, a biomass conversion company based in Robson Valley, British Columbia, is pleased to announce it has signed an agreement with Ripple, the leading provider of enterprise blockchain and crypto solutions. BC Biocarbon developed and leverages proprietary carbon-refining technology to convert biodegradable biomass into solid, liquid and gaseous carbon products. Through this agreement, Ripple will receive a stream of BC Biocarbon’s high-quality carbon removal credits, likely to be verified by and certified as CO2 Removal Certificates (“CORCS”). Each CORC represents a metric ton of C02 removed from the atmosphere, aligned with the IPCC definition of carbon removal.

"At BC Biocarbon, we’re passionate about deploying our proprietary technology that transforms biomass into biochar while removing and sequestering carbon for centuries. Climate change is among the greatest threats of our time, and partnerships such as ours with Ripple are crucial to building the necessary momentum we need to gain meaningful ground in the fight against emissions." said Peter Popplewell, CEO, BC Biocarbon. "I am incredibly impressed with Ripple’s knowledge of carbon removal technologies that enable durable carbon storage. Their team is working diligently to scrutinize the quality and integrity of the projects they sponsor which sets a high bar - we are honoured to have earned a place in their portfolio."

BC Biocarbon’s CORCS are derived from the production of biological charcoal (“biochar”), a charcoal-like material that is safe to be re-used in a variety of climate-positive ways, including land and water treatment, and helping soils to retain nutrients and water. Biochar has high permanence, making it an effective method of sequestering carbon and storing it for centuries, driving meaningful CO2 reductions critical in the fight against climate change.

“Biochar is one of the most innovative and promising carbon removal methodologies we have to mitigate climate change because it not only removes and sequesters large amounts of CO2, but also delivers a powerful array of ecological benefits,” said Ken Weber, Head of Impact at Ripple. “Ripple is thrilled to make this investment in credits from BC Biocarbon given their compelling proprietary technology and robust business model. We look forward to working with the BC Biocarbon team to scale their impact in the fight against climate change.”
