Environmental Sustainability

Scholarly research has shown, cherry pits once destined for landfill may be converted to biochars and used in soil amendments to filter runoff into the abundant lakes of the cherry growing region. This process can remove metal contaminants from drinking water, while also greatly reducing the environmental impact of the cherry processing industry.
