Trapping carbon in soil is the best known natural way of removing CO2 from the atmosphere. Living Soil stores carbon, improves agricultural resiliency, food quality and biodiversity.

SymSoil’s patent pending process cultivates the complete soil ecosystems, using methods from multiple composting traditions and proprietary techniques.

“Finding mechanisms for putting carbon back into landscapes enhances biodiversity. More biodiverse ecosystems store more carbon, more securely and are more resilient to the impacts of climate change.”​

Healthy Soil Sequesters Carbon Naturally

Dr. Elaine Ingham, world renowned soil scientist and SymSoil Senior Science Advisor
arin Carbon Project found that applying compost increased the soil’s carbon content at a rate comparable to 1.5 metric tons of carbon from the atmosphere each year. 
Living Soil enhances carbon sequestration at rates several times that of compost, through the growth fungi, which stores carbon in the soil. SymSoil restores the microbes and converts dead dirt into Living Soil which improves the land’s water-holding capacity and increases plant’s health, vigor and yields. Research from the University of Texas at Austin, the Smithsonian Tropical Research Institute, and Boston University on carbon and nitrogen cycles found soil biology to be the driver of carbon storage, particularly “the mechanisms by which carbon can stay in the ground rather than going into the atmosphere.” 

Soil destruction creates a vicious cycle, in which less carbon is stored, the world gets hotter, and the land is further degraded.”
