A new report "Biochar: A critical review of science and policy" can be downloaded from .  The Executive Summary or the individual chapters can also be downloaded from that webpage.
This report is a substantially expanded update of our 2009 “Biochar for Climate Mitigation: Fact or Fiction”. It takes a critical look at the claims around biochar, reviews the science underlying the claims, provides an overview of what biochar advocates are pushing for in terms of policies and supports (as well as looking at key developments related to soil carbon offsets internationally and in different countries and regions), and presents an outline of the companies involved. It is an interim report, with the final version due to be published during the UN climate conference in Durban.
Please feel free to forward this to anyone who might be interested.  Thanks.
Best regards,
