Webinar: Biochar Production Using Forest Residuals
November 16th, 2015 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm
This Waste to Wisdom webinar focuses on the project’s research into the production of biochar from forest residuals and evaluates the potential to operate a biochar production machine at or near forest operation sites. Every year, over 50 million bone dry tons of forest residuals are left in U.S. forests because it is uneconomical to extract. Producing biochar from this resource provides one potential pathway to bring these marginal feedstocks to the market. Biochar, which is a carbonaceous material produced through pyrolysis of biomass, can be used as a soil amendment to increase water holding capacity and decrease nutrient leaching in addition to sequestering carbon in the soil.
