Adelaide Hills Biochar Initiative

The South Australian WEEKENDER HERALD NEWS recently printed an article entitled “SUBSTANCE COMBATS GLOBAL WARMING” featuring a photo of “yours truly” holding some biochar. This excellent article crafted by journalist Lucy Robinson kindly referred to my 5 years of biochar trials while managing local equipment manufacturer Flow Force Technologies; and recommended my new book “Making Biochar – with Technical Manual” for anyone wanting to take up the practice of producing biochar.

The article also referred to my suggestion that local councils get on board and allow landholders the option of using a biochar kiln to convert their tree litter to biochar instead of burning it. The recent extensive storm damage in the Adelaide Hills coupled with new State government legislation banning the burning of garden waste in townships has aggravated the problem of tree litter disposal prior to onset of the bush fire season.
