The foundation for healthy plants and soil ...

... with the power to help reverse climate change.

Explore the Benefits

Ultra-porous Persist™ biochar from VGrid acts as a carbon sponge helping soil to hold water up to six times longer. The microscopic pores also provide a home for an abundance of beneficial microorganisms in the soil. Best of all, Persist is a highly stable form of captured carbon produced from agricultural waste, which would otherwise decompose and release CO2 back into the atmosphere.

Farming & Horticulture

We call it "The Coral Reef of the Soil." (tm) VGrid's Persist™ biochar is a stable and ultra-porous form of sequestered carbon. Just as the “nooks and crannies” of a coral reef harbor a huge variety of sea life, the microscopic pores of biochar provide a home for an abundance of microorganisms, which are critical for long-term soil and plant health.

Golf Courses

Strong, vibrant turf with less watering.  With its superior water-holding and nutrient-binding ability, Persist™ is significantly improving divot repair, topdressing and overall soil health at leading courses, while also improving their environmental record by sequestering carbon, reducing water, and limiting chemical fertilizers and pesticides.

Viticulture

The growing need for improved water management is one of the prime benefits seen in vineyards. Most of the benefits of biochar are derived from its exceptional porosity and surface area, which help it to hold water and bind nutrients in the root zone. The result is increased yields, with growers seeing payback in 2-3 harvests.

Persist™ Biochar is a USDA Certified Biobased Product.

Composting Operations

Composting is a fantastic use for organic waste … Persist™ biochar and Persist™ PAF makes it better!

  • Accelerates the composting process
  • Increases aeration
  • Increases microbial action
  • Reduces leaching
  • Reduces odors
  • Reduced harmful gas emissions
  • Reduces Nitrogen (N) loss
  • Improves humic content
  • Reduces ‘clumping’ in compost pile
  • Enhances compost effectiveness and plant yields

Ultra-porous Persist™ Biochar provides superior performance

Our proprietary manufacturing process creates an extremely porous biochar with an intricate network of microscopic cavities and channels. The result is a massive surface area-to-volume ratio, which provides superior water holding capacity, nutrient binding, and overall microbial benefits. The porosity of Persist biochar is significantly greater than most other products on the market.

Viticulture

The growing need for improved water management is one of the prime benefits seen in vineyards.  Most of the benefits of biochar are derived from its exceptional porosity and surface area, which include:

  • Increased water retention
  • Increased soil carbon
  • Nutrient release leveling
  • Soil structure management
  • Soil biota improvement
  • Soil contamination mitigation
  • Reduced soil compaction

The result is increased yields, with growers seeing payback in 2-3 harvests, with no negative impact on grape characteristics.

Biochar is helping to reverse climate change.

If we stop fossil fuel emissions tomorrow, global temperatures will still rise significantly. There's simply too much CO2 in atmosphere. Recent studies suggest up to 10 gigatons globally must be sequestered by 2050 to prevent catastrophic climate impact. Climate experts estimate that biochar alone could address as much as 40% of the needed carbon removal, while simultaneously mitigating other environmental issues.

Filtering runoff with captured carbon.  From filtering runoff and leachate to binding toxins, VGrid’s highly porous Persist biochar is more efficient at filtering contaminants than other options. When used in a bioswale, as landfill cover, or for site remediation, Persist™ will effectively bind and hold pollutants, while also sequestering atmospheric carbon in the soil.

Lower municipal costs while improving the environment.  Cities, towns, and municipalities of all sizes can demonstrate leadership in combating climate change, while also lowering watering expense, improving soil health, and reducing their community's green waste. Transportation authorities are even discovering advantages of including biochar within their road salt mix and aggregates.

Persist™ Biochar Advantages

CAUTION: Not all biochars are the same. Biochar characteristics, including carbon and ash content, should be verified with a lab analysis.

  • Absorbs and holds water in soil six times longer.
  • Produced from 100% California-grown pistachio shells -- a waste product otherwise destined for the landfill.
  • Carbon content greater than 90%, which is significantly higher than most other brands of biochar.
  • Higher porosity and surface area ratio compared to other biochar on the market.
  • Ultra-low ash and VOC content.
  • Consistent particle size distribution.
  • Available in a 3-quart bag, 1.5 cubic foot bag and 2.0 cubic yard supersack.
  • Persist can be manufactured with alternate feedstocks, finer particle sizes, and other custom requirements.  Contact us for details.
