To the Biochar Community:

Join us for Biochar 2016, a symposium of the US Biochar Initiative. Pre-conference workshops provide an opportunity to exchange experiences growing food with biochar. Keynote speakers will lead off with needs for soil health and climate change followed by table top discussion of important topics. Ninety presentations and forty posters will cover topics such as product quality, markets, education, policy, harvesting and processing, post processing, and applications in forestry, agriculture, storm water and remediation. Experiences ranging from small scale to full scale industrial and agricultural systems will be described. We will map strategies for developing North American biochar markets and use. A tour will demonstrate commercial applications and field research by our host Oregon State University. Take advantage of the early bird registration and plan to join us in August.
