North American Biochar & Bioenergy Conference

“Decarbonizing our Economy” 




Morgantown Marriott at Waterfront Place, Morgantown, WV  - August 8-11th, 2022



May 25, 2022:    Biochar 2022 will be held in Morgantown, West Virginia, with proximity to Pittsburgh, PA, Washington DC, and Baltimore, MD.   The North American Biochar & Bioenergy Conference is the largest event in North America dedicated to “Decarbonizing our Economy.” The 2022 North American Biochar & Bioenergy conference will focus on bridging scientific, industrial, practitioner, and policy gaps in biomass utilization for biochar and bioenergy production. The meeting will draw attention to biochar and bioenergy science, technology, and sustainability issues at local-to-global scales.


The US Biochar Initiative (USBI) promotes the sustainable production and use of biochar and has hosted the pre-eminent North American biochar conference since 2009.   “Register to learn how biochar can help increase yields, climate resilience, access to capital, and income from carbon payments,”  stated Tom Miles, Executive Director of US Biochar Initiative.



The West Virginia University (WVU) is the academic conference partner. WVU is leading the MASBio Program through funding from the USDA National Institute of Food and Agriculture.   Dr. Jingxing Wang, Director of Center for Sustainable Biomaterials & Bioenergy at West Virginia University, believes “that the ongoing R&D activities of the MASBio will be beneficial to the attendees and this conference would help further develop the regional bioeconomy.”
