Abstract: The workshop is organized as a part of the ‘Enabling Bio-innovations for Poverty Alleviation in Asia Project’, conducted by the University of Edinburgh. Biochar is the result of heating biomass (including wood and agricultural residues) in a zero to low oxygen environment to produce a charcoal type material, which can also be used as a soil amendment. Workshop presentations are covered in this report, featuring examples of biochar stoves and converters, where gasification cook stoves can produce biochar potentially at 25-30% conversion rate, as well as the use of biochar for fertilizer.
