Over the last several years, researchers have helped open up many promising avenues for biochar market development in North America. Likewise, many entrepreneurs and small business owners have made investments to develop commercial markets.
With so much research being published on biochar (over 5000 publications in 2015 alone!), there is a need to bring together these two groups to share information, lessons learned, and to solicit ideas on the pathway forward for biochar commercial development. The US Biochar Initiative and Sustainable Obtainable Solutions aims to bring together stakeholders in the applied biochar research community and the private sector to further biochar market development.
Join us at the CH2M Hill Alumni Center on the beautiful Oregon State University Campus in Corvallis, OR.
This event is designed for farmers, foresters, policymakers, biochar producers, industry professionals and entrepreneurs. Students and interested citizens will also benefit from this event.
