For more on their work visit the SonomaBiocharInitiative.org website.
This panel offers an unusual opportunity to learn about biochar production and use in several very different settings. One presentation offers insights into potential advantages of using biochar in Laos and Thailand, especially to address the massive methane emissions that otherwise are occurring from inundation of extensive hydropower projects’ reservoirs. Experiences in Alberta and Haiti provide further insights into biochar’s relationships with both energy development and agricultural poverty.
