(31st Oct at Burnie)
Tamar NRM and Biochar industry experts are running a forum entitled BIOCHAR – “Because the Time is Right”.
Produced by burning organic matter in an oxygen-limited environment, biochar is used as a soil amendment.
Biochar can close or rebalance or detoxify different environmental cycles from carbon, to nitrogen, to phosphorus to water. Its surface area, porosity, morphology, electrical conductivity and other varied and variable characteristics lend themselves to a myriad of different end uses.
The Forum will present the science behind biochar and importantly the opportunities for it provides for Tasmanians.
