Carbon Farming CE

Project contributes to climate neutrality with development of agriculture-related solutions for capturing CO2 from the air and deploying it into the soil. This is done by introduction and uptake of “carbon farming” practices, business model, monitoring solutions and policies for storing Green House Emissions as soil organic carbon (SOC).

Project will result in enhanced role of agricultural sector to reduction of greenhouse emissions and contribution to climate neutrality of Central Europe. Carbon farming concept is very new (2020), therefore techniques, business model and policies still need to be designed and tested.

Project will test 6 carbon farming techniques in 9 CE countries and develop transnational guide for carbon farming TECHNIQUES as solution for mainstreaming it to 45 farmers. It will also test of carbon farming business model in 9 CE countries and develop transnational carbon farming BUSINESS MODEL ready made for upscaling. Within the project standardized carbon sequestration monitoring methodology and upscale carbon farming policies will be developed.

Main beneficiaries are farmers and agriculture support institutions, receiving solutions for carbon farming.  Transferability will be guaranteed with proposing novel solutions and high number of associated partners interested in uptake. Sustainability will be supported by Carbon Farming Cluster supporting EU carbon farming policy process 2023-2030.
