Biochar Blog #3: Biosolids, Fertilisers and Local Feedstocks – A warm welcome to our gap-filling research projects
Biochar is a greenhouse gas removal (GGR) technology that can potentially make a major contribution to the UK’s net zero target achieving greenhouse gas emission reductions when applied to agricultural lands, peatlands and other locations. However, the big questions are: how can we make sure it is environmentally sustainable and economically viable? And are there any technological improvements that can facilitate the realisation of these goals?
Research Update – Summer 2022
Small scale field trials at the Universities of Nottingham and Bangor are well underway and are already producing interesting datasets. As well as these trials, despite the unusually dry weather and some biochar supply issues, five farmers applied biochar to one-hectare plots on their working…
Research Update – Biochar in Bangor
Henfaes research centre, about 7 miles outside of Bangor, recently became the latest site for the application of biochar by our researchers. Rob Brown and Maria Majka with support from their colleagues at Bangor Uni, applied over 800 kg of biochar (by hand!) to 40…
Biochar Blog #1 – The Basics!
Human greenhouse gas emissions are the root cause of climate change, affecting the Earth’s natural equilibrium. The effects of climate change are likely to include temperature rise, sea level rise, ocean acidification, and increased frequency and severity of extreme weather events (e.g., drought and flooding),…
