A Review of the Benefits of Biochar and Proposed Trials

Biochar is a type of charcoal produced by heating biomass under oxygen limited conditions (pyrolysis or gasification). In April 2019 the ACT Government engaged AECOM to undertake a literature review of the status of agronomic biochars. Further AECOM, in consultation with relevant stakeholders, was to develop proposals to evaluate the potential costs and benefits of a sewage solids and woody-biomass derived biochar in ACT conditions. You can read the full literature review and report here.
