Plenty of high profile international biochar brainpower at the lectern for this workshop on the 10 December. The program looks interesting.
“Leading experts from Australia, Israel, New Zealand, Norway, Spain, Thailand, UK and USA will discuss biochar applications in different systems. It is a great opportunity to learn about the current biochar research and applications.
A group of leading biochar researchers from Australia, Israel, New Zealand, Norway, Spain, Thailand, UK and USA will be meeting at the University of Sydney to discuss methods of biochar analysis and environmental applications of biochar. We will take advantage of this international gathering to hold a one day seminar for the public to become acquainted with the present status of biochar research and bio- char use in many countries.
The speakers will discuss results and experiences of biochar applications, including environmental and socioeconomic impacts of utilizing different waste materials for biochar production and life cycle assessment of biochar implementation. Case studies from several countries will be presented by leading biochar researchers. Additionally, results of the application of advanced analytical techniques for the characterisation of biochar will be presented and related to the environmental and agricultural applications of biochar.
We invite researchers, land managers, regulators, students and inquisitive members of the public to attend this seminar.
