NZAGRC 2021 Highlights

NZAGRC has recently shared a report covering their progress in 2021. The report does mention biochar on pg30…

I posted on this MPI commissioned report here:

I can’t recall seeing any synopsis coming from the Wellington presentation but I guess we can say that this useful work has not lead to any new investment on biochar research. I suggest that this research investment is needed for biochar to overcome foreseen financial and practical barriers “to provide cost-effective mitigation at scale“.

Bringing biochar into the ETS would help overcome the financial barriers but so would govt support for demonstration projects. I look at the practical barriers and see exciting opportunities.
