Day 142 PDC Biochar Workshop

We finished up day 5 of the PDC with a workshop about the uses and production of biochar.

What is Biochar? According to the Internet: Biochar is a solid material obtained from the carbonisation of biomass. Biochar may be added to soils with the intention to improve soil functions and to reduce emissions from biomass that would otherwise naturally degrade to greenhouse gases. Biochar also has appreciable carbon sequestration value. These properties are measurable and verifiable in a characterisation scheme, or in a carbon emission offset protocol.
