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.

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.



Grow better in biochar, while also helping to cool the planet.  Persist™ biochar holds more water and nutrients compared to other grow media, including rockwool, coco coir, and peat. And, all-natural Persist™ is sustainably produced from agricultural waste otherwise destined for landfills, sequestering its carbon for hundreds or thousands of years.

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. Every ton of Persist™ biochar removes as much as ten tons of atmospheric CO2, the equivalent emissions of two typical passenger vehicles per year. Climate experts estimate that biochar alone could address as much as 40% of the needed carbon removal, while simultaneously mitigating other environmental issues.

Livestock Feed Supplement

Healthy animals – Healthy planet.  High-grade Persist™ biochar is produced from 100% California-grown pistachio shells. It is then further refined for use as an animal feed supplement, where it has been shown to increase animal growth and improve feed efficiency, while also helping to reduce and control GHG emissions from livestock animals.

Animal Bedding Deodorizer

Your animals deserve it, and so does the planet.  Naturally eliminate waste odors, control moisture, and extend bedding life. Persist™ biochar is used in horse stalls, chicken coups, swine stalls, and small animal bedding to filter odors, reduce moisture, and trap ammonia, helping to create a better environment for both animals and people.

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.
