How it works

Char - Toucan

CHAR by Toucan is infrastructure for the automated, on-demand buying and selling of biochar carbon credits.

Dollar Sign - Toucan

CHAR aggregates screened credits from the Puro Registry (“CORCs”) on one single platform as CHAR. As a project developer, you can sell your CORCs into CHAR. Buyers can purchase specific biochar credits from CHAR’s available supply.

Simplifying Access - Toucan

CHAR’s streamlined access to capital furthers Toucan’s mission to address major supply bottlenecks across CDR. It helps young and established projects in the nascent biochar market space to liquidate their credits to fund their growing operations.

Selling Biochar Credits

Turn eliglible biochar credits into cash.

Sell CORCs anytime

With CHAR, you always have a buyer for your credits. Sales can be executed from anywhere in the world. Once tokenized, your biochar credits are directly sold into a highly liquid biochar market, without the need to wait for a counterparty.

Opt out when you want

Credits can freely move on and off our platform. They can always be redeemed for their underlying CORCs in the Puro Registry, and sold via other sales channels. There is no lock-in or waiting time.

Earn royalties

CHAR’s underlying technology will allocate a portion of the reselling proceeds to the original project developer each time a project’s credit is sold into or redeemed out of the CHAR pool. Project developers profit from their credits being traded, rather than just receiving one spot payment.

Clear price point

The price of CHAR updates dynamically every time credits are sold or bought. Specific CORCs are priced based on the composition of projects in the pool. Current price and price history are publicly displayed for full transparency.
