Adelaide Hills Biochar Initiative


by Brian Lewis - November 5th, 2010.
Filed under: Announcements.

We have produced a number of batches of biochar with the Flow Force demonstration Batch Carboniser since June this year using feedstock from interested local people. Feedstocks used included:

Eucalyptus wood chips;
Eucalyptus logs;
Hardwood pallets;
Sawmill Pine offcuts;
Willow sticks.

Some of the resulting biochar will be made available as FREE SAMPLES to visitors to Adelaide Hills Farmers Markets commencing with the Macclesfield Strawberry Fete on Sunday November 28.

The slide presentations of Papers presented at the recent biochar conference in China are freely available to peruse at
These provide much insight into the work currently being done on biochar around the world and also provide some useful tips for users of biochar.
