WE ARE A CARBON REMOVAL AND CLEAN ENERGY COMPANY
We started MOTHERLOVERS compelled to no longer be idle observers on the sidelines.
After 30+ years of promising climate summits that are not moving the needle sufficiently to meet climate deadlines, we made it our business to help move that damn needle.
STAKEHOLDERS, INCLUDING INVESTORS, CUSTOMERS, AND EMPLOYEES, ARE DEMANDING ACTION. NOT JUST IN THE STREETS, BUT WITH THEIR WALLETS.
We use industrial hemp to remove up to 3x more CO2 than trees, store it in biochar for up to 1,000 years, and in the process generate clean, sustainable electricity along with high-quality carbon credits.
Industrial hemp captures and removes up to 3x more CO2 than trees, and grows to carbon maturity in 4 months versus 10+ years for a tree.
Hemp biomass (agricultural leftovers) is converted to bio-charcoal or “biochar” which regenerates soil and increases plant yield 200-300%
The excess heat generated from biochar production is converted to clean electricity using a steam turbine to power our facility. The rest we sell into the local grid.
Biochar also creates a “stable matrix” which locks carbon away for centuries. This qualifies our biochar for carbon credits to offset a carbon footprint.
WHY HEMP? WHY NOT TREES?
Industrial hemp removes up to 6 tons of CO2 per acre vs 2 tons per acre for trees. That's up to 3x more CO2, and hemp grows to carbon maturity in 4 months vs 10+ years for trees.
Oh, and the planet loses 15 billion trees every year. So, yeah.
WHY IS THIS IMPORTANT?
In 10 years, a thousand acres of trees would have used CO2 to mainly fuel its growth, while an equal area of industrial hemp would have captured and removed 60,000 tons of CO2.
WHAT IS BIOCHAR?
Biochar is created by heating agricultural leftovers, or "biomass" in the absence of oxygen.
This creates a stable matrix that locks away the carbon for up to 1,000 years.
Also, due to its porous structure, biochar retains water and nutrients around a plants root system and can thus increase crop yield by 2-3x while at the same time regenerating the soil.
Why should you care about clean and sustainable energy?
Because a carbon molecule can be anywhere in the world in 7 days. So, replacing fossil fuel-based electricity with clean electricity anywhere on the planet is good for everyone on the planet.
