Carbon Project Development for a Sustainable Future

An opportunity to improve farm income, soil health, and sequester carbon from the atmosphere.

Global Sequestration Potential

Agricultural carbon credits are gaining increased attention as a part of global efforts to combat climate change. These credits are part of carbon offset programs where farmers and landowners implement practices that reduce or sequester greenhouse gas emissions and, in return, earn tradable carbon credits. Soil carbon sequestration addresses more than 50%* of required greenhouse gas reduction while creating an enormous economic opportunity for farmland owners.

Biodel partners with agricultural landowners to form individual carbon projects that can generate significant revenue.

Our Technology

  1. We measure the full root zone which yields more carbon credits per acre.
  2. We measure actual soil carbon and compensate based on measured rather than modeled carbon amounts.
  3. We are soil specific, not crop specific.

The basis of our carbon program is restoring soil carbon cycling leading to the permanent sequestering of carbon. Biodel Carbon provides agronomic advice to facilitate the basic practice changes or enhancements that restore carbon cycling.

Our Process

Biodel uniquely provides the most compelling and cost-effective solution for sequestering significant volumes of CO2 from our atmosphere, while revitalizing depleted soils.

These practices involve precise field measurement of soil carbon, permanent carbon sequestration, and emission reduction strategies. 

We streamline the process of deriving value from soil carbon sequestration, facilitating all aspects of the process. We provide the process and support to generate high value carbon credits, including: 

Carbon Credit Development for AG Landowners: Our primary focus is facilitating the sequestration of CO2 and ensuring accurate soil carbon measurements. 

Agronomic Guidance to Restore Soil Health: Biodel Carbon will provide strategies for implementing practice changes that improve soil health, which will directly benefit agronomic support, farming practices, and crop yields. 

Evaluation Support: Biodel Carbon is committed to providing objective advice and analysis to measure the effectiveness of carbon cycling and optimize farm incomes. This includes evaluating the progress of landowners and operators in implementing recommended practices.


Initial Consultation

Get acquainted with the process, benefits, objectives and requirements. 


Prepare a Defined Carbon Program

Satisfy practice changes and permanence requirements.  


Project Agreement

Review and completion of project agreement with Landowner.


Initial Field Scan and Pre-Sell

Perform property mapping & scan. 3-Year Estimate is prepared and 20% is pre-sold for Year 1 payment.  Program implemented.


Field Scan

Projects payments are made following each field scan. Field scan frequency is between 1 – 3 years depending on carbon accumulation.  

Key Strategies 

3-Year Pre-Sell.

Biodel prepares a 3-year estimate of carbon credits to be generated based on the defined carbon program. 20% of the 3-year estimate is pre-sold to generate initial cash flow. This provides a period for implementation and assessment of the program and all details related to the effectiveness of the carbon program and performance potential.

Field SCAN.

The actual accumulation of soil carbon is measured, verified, and credits generated. Project evaluation is completed to review all aspects of Project performance.

Carbon Intensification.

After the initial pre-sell period of 3-years, the Project continues to intensify Carbon sequestration with additional practices changes and regenerative crop inputs to optimize the economic performance for the Landowner

Carbon Offsets Based on REAL Carbon

For Carbon Offset Buyers:
Measurement Accuracy = Quality = Price

Biodel offers a premium, trustworthy carbon credit based on the measurement of real soil carbon at an atomic level. Biodel supplies high quality carbon offsets and equivalents sought by carbon offset buyers. 


The short answer is to restore the soils’ microbial biomass (biological function). Beneficial Aerobic Microbes work synergistically with plants to cycle carbon from the atmosphere, promote nutrient cycling, and aggregate soil particles.
Specifically, 1) Inoculate the soil with microbes at planting or beginning of the crop cycle; 2) Feed the microbes from emergence to harvest; and 3) Maintain microbial activity between cash crops with terrestrial or micro cover crops. It is the AG Landowner / Operators responsibility to define and implement the specific inputs and practices to achieve measurable results. Other commonly defined practice changes serve to inoculate, feed and/or maintain the soils’ microbial biomass and can be added by the Operator at anytime to intensify carbon sequestration.
The AG Landowner / Operator has three years to achieve measurable results, however, under the Biodel project structure, there is no penalty or economic consequence to the Participant if measurable results are not achieved. It is a process. This is why it is important that Biodel provide experienced agronomic support to help plan and implement practice changes within the capability of the Operator (farm manager or tenant).
A Biodel CCA will discuss the scanning dates with the AG Landowner / Operator and determine when to schedule field scanning. A hand-held scanner can provide data to support scanning decisions between full field scanning. Other analytics can provide the Operator decision making data.
WHAT IS THE BIODEL CCA? Biodel eBiodel employs Certified Crop Advisors (agronomist) as our field representatives to gather required data, review practices, monitor progress, and support the process of carbon sequestration. The Biodel CCA is intended to be a trusted advisor who is available as needed.
